Kane Biotech and ProgenaCare Global Launch Newly Rebranded revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel at Advanced Wound Care Fall Forum

Name change reinforces a fresh start for chronic wounds with a triple threat approach

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kane Biotech Inc. (TSX-V:KNE OTCQB:KNBIF) (the “Company” or “Kane Biotech”) in partnership with ProgenaCare Global LLP (“ProgenaCare”) today announces the launch of the newly rebranded revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel (formerly coactiv+™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel).

“We are excited to share this cutting-edge product and the new revyve™ brand with the larger wound care community. Clinicians who have been exposed to the product so far have really appreciated the combination of advanced technology with an affordable price point. We are working to expand clinical usage of the product in advance of full production scale-up in Q1,” stated Howard Walthall, CEO of ProgenaCare.

The product rebranding is being unveiled as part of Kane’s participation in the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Fall forum. The conference will take place on November 2-5, 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada and is intended to connect the entire wound care team fostering inclusivity, innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration. During this conference, Kane Biotech and ProgenaCare will present along with other important voices in the Biotech and Wound Care sectors.

Kane’s revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel is a combination of its patented coactiv+™ technology and PHMB, paired with a non-ionic pluronic surfactant with thermo-gelling properties. The combination of these three components provides for a moist environment best suited for wound healing, with effective antimicrobial activity in an easy-to-use gel that is optimized for sensitive wounds.

“The first step of the healing process in the treatment of chronic non-healing wounds is to clear out the infection. Kane’s team, in collaboration with ProgenaCare, chose the name “revyve” to symbolize the revival of the healing process. I am excited about the results of this collaboration with ProgenaCare which is a great start to our long-term partnership,” stated Marc Edwards, President and CEO of Kane Biotech.
