Our extensive research to date and the results from a recent clinical trial suggest that Smart Matrix® brings together all the physical features of the extracellular matrix required to support cellular processes seen in wound healing. The Smart Matrix® scaffold provides support for this to happen for much larger wounds than the body can ordinarily cope with by itself and, most importantly, without the need for a skin graft.
Smart Matrix Limited is currently preparing to carry out a 2nd clinical trial examining Smart Matrix® in humans without a skin graft. Possibly uniquely, this offers the prospect of healing certain types and sizes of wound, of which there are many, with a single visit to hospital theatre, meaning less trauma, less pain and less cost.
There remains a pressing clinical need for such a product because large, chronic and complex wounds have yet to be satisfactorily addressed by today’s available treatments. A product like Smart Matrix® is needed that provides intrinsically robust, rapid integration and reconstruction of new inner skin tissue even in hostile wound conditions.
