CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Biologica Technologies announced today that it will be exhibiting Allofill at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Annual Meeting being held this week at Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Boston, MA. Biologica Technologies will be located in booth number 436.
Allofill is the first product of its kind; a ready to use, 'off the shelf', adipose derived injectable filler. Allofill works with the body to provide an all-natural tissue scaffold with native growth factors, such as VEGF, aFGF and bFGF, which are important in angiogenesis and adipogenesis. Allofill retains the native extracellular matrix (ECM) components of adipose tissue and over time it will be remodeled into native soft tissue.
"At various times, autologous fat transfer or using other fillers may not be the most ideal procedure for a patient," stated President, Amit Govil. "Allofill provides a very unique and new option for surgeons with a product that will remodel into native, host tissue and one that has more reliable results and cost savings over autologous fat transfer."
About Allofill and Biologica Technologies
Allofill can be used to fill soft-tissue defects as a non-invasive alternative to autologous fat grafting to provide cushioning and support for subcutaneous tissue. Allofill is intended for use in situations where autologous fat grafting is appropriate and should be restricted to homologous use of adipose tissue. Allofill is currently undergoing clinical trials and will be available for sale in the near future.
