Celligenics, an associate company of Best World International, is partnering with scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the Skin Research Institute of Singapore (SRIS) to develop therapies that speed up healing for chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers and bed sores.
Such chronic wounds, if left untreated, can lead to amputations or even death should bacteria enter the bloodstream. The project, which is awarded the Skin Innovation Grant, aims to trigger and expedite the healing process of the wound to prevent such outcomes.
A regenerative extract developed through Celligenics’ proprietary stem cell technology will be the foundation for the project’s prototype of wound healing patches, gels or sprays. The extract was found to be able to stimulate cell repair and speed up wound closure by 33%, affirming its potential in the development of these therapies.
We are hopeful that the tripartite collaboration will contribute to more affordable and accessible solutions for chronic wounds to the market.
