Kane Biotech Announces 510(k) Submission for its coactiv+™ Antimicrobial Hydrogel
WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kane Biotech Inc. (TSX-V:KNE OTCQB:KNBIF) (the “Company” or “Kane Biotech”) announces that it has recently submitted a 510(k) premarket notification, which has been received by The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), for a new Wound Care coactiv+™ Antimicrobial Hydrogel.
The Company’s device, which uses its patented coactiv+™ technology in a thermo-reversible gelling system, provides ease of use and is optimised for sensitive wounds. The Company aims to make the wound gel accessible to patients, taking into consideration current reimbursement levels under the surgical dressing policy in the U.S.
“This is yet another major milestone for Kane” said Marc Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are optimistic about the opportunities ahead as we expand Kane’s core technologies. I would like to recognize our team who have worked diligently on this initiative and continue to work through the FDA review process. I believe that this technology will be well-received by the FDA and help a lot of people suffering from chronic wounds.”
Chronic wounds present a significant financial burden to the U.S. healthcare system. The treatment of chronic wounds is a major challenge for health care providers, with a high failure rate leading to amputation, sepsis, and death. One of the major reasons for this failure is the formation of bacterial biofilms, which are present in over 80% of chronic wounds1. Biofilm formation can make bacteria up to 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, antimicrobial agents, disinfectants, and the host immune system.
