CollPlant Ltd. (TASE: CLPT), a regenerative medicine company utilizing its proprietary plant-based rhCollagen technology for tissue repair products, today announced positive final extended clinical trial results for Vergenix™STR for the treatment of tendinopathy. The Company anticipates receiving CE mark approval for Vergenix™STR in the third quarter of 2016.
The prospective, open label, single-arm trial was conducted at three leading Israeli hospitals (Meir Medical Center, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center and Hadassah Hospital), and the trial's objective was to demonstrate the safety and performance of Vergenix™STR in 40 patients suffering from inflammation of the elbow tendon, commonly referred to as tennis elbow. All patients were followed for a total of six months after a single treatment. Product performance was assessed by measuring reduction in pain and recovery of motion, as reported by the specific Patient Related Tennis Elbow Evaluation questionnaire ("PRTEE").
At three months following treatment, Vergenix™STR patients (N=39) reported an average PRTEE score improvement of 51% over baseline. At six-month follow-up, Vergenix™STR patients (N=36) reported a mean PRTEE score improvement of 59% over baseline.
