InVivo Therapeutics has pioneered a new treatment that uses a biocompatible polymer-based scaffold to provide structural support to a damaged spinal cord in order to spare tissue from scarring while improving recovery and prognosis after a traumatic spinal cord injury. In addition to the scaffold, Reynolds will discuss the company’s portfolio of technologies for other areas of the nervous system, including innovative injectable hydrogel products the company intends to submit to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012.
“Our technology is a true platform that can be leveraged to create many products, including hydrogel treatments for peripheral nerve injury and other conditions. We’re currently under review at FDA for our first spinal cord injury treatment, and we look forward to receiving approval to begin those human studies,” said Reynolds.
