Graft Preservative

Therapeutics, Biologics, Biomarkers, and Diagnostics

Developers:  Jonathan Bourne, PhD; Peter Torzilli, PhD

A new method for treating tissue grafts using a simple “dip and soak” procedure to make grafts more durable—resulting in faster healing and reduced risk of failure. Our scientists repurposed a drug candidate, clinically tested to be effective in reducing systolic blood pressure, and demonstrated efficacy to target and stop newly identified soft tissue degenerative process.
