curasan AG Scouts for Sales Partners for ATR®

Supporting wound healing and tissue regeneration through the extraction of autologous platelet-mediator-concentrate (PMC) – high patient compatibility using autologous blood – No need for centrifuges and external laboratories.

Kleinostheim, Germany, July 29, 2010 --( curasan AG, listed in the General Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN: DE 000 549 453 8), has commenced with the pre-marketing activities for the launch of its new product ATR® (Advanced Tissue Regeneration).

ATR® is a standardised system for extracting growth factors, which support wound healing and tissue regeneration. The areas of application include severe skin damage such as ulcers, large-area burns, skin transplantations, cartilage and cell culture or chronic wounds. Furthermore, the product can have a favourable impact on the wound healing process for the optimised regeneration of bones and mucous membranes in plastic surgery, in oral and maxillofacial surgery and implantology.

“ATR® is an attractive proposition for various specialised enterprises on account of its wide range of applications. Since a marketable product is now available, we can actively pursue negotiations with potential sales partners with immediate effect,” explains Hans Dieter Rössler, CEO of curasan AG.

Initially, the activities are aimed at Germany and the European market. However, in the medium term curasan AG anticipates enormous potential for ATR®, above all, in the US market.

With the help of ATR®, autologous platelet-mediator-concentrate (PMC) is extracted from the patient’s own blood, which ensures a high degree of compatibility. PMC supplies the important growth factors for wound healing and tissue regeneration, which can then be brought directly in the wound area. ATR® is a single use device that requires neither machines nor external laboratories; hence, there are no investment costs and no costs incurred in the services provided by third parties.

The ATR® system contains everything that is needed to extract the concentrate either in the doctor’s practice or in the operating room.
