PLAINSBORO, N.J., Dec. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today announced the expansion of its skin and wound product line with the introduction of Integra® Meshed Dermal Regeneration Template. Integra Meshed Dermal Regeneration Template has received Pre-Market Approval (PMA) from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and expects to begin a full market release in the United States in January 2015. Integra's newest skin product will be featured at the John A. Boswick Burn and Wound Care Symposium, February 14-18, 2015.
"Integra Meshed Dermal Regeneration Template is currently the only pre-meshed bilayer matrix approved by the FDA for third-degree burns and scar contracture procedures," said William Weber, Vice President and General Manager, Integra Orthopedics and Tissue Technologies. "It complements our burn product portfolio, and combines the proven collagen technology of Integra Dermal Regeneration Template with the convenience of a pre-meshed configuration."
Integra Meshed Dermal Regeneration Template is a collagen-chondroitin-6-sulfate, pre-meshed bilayer matrix indicated for the postexcisional treatment of life-threatening full-thickness or deep partial-thickness thermal injuries, and the repair of scar contractures when other therapies have failed. Terminally sterilized, Integra Meshed Dermal Regeneration Template is conveniently stored at room temperature, has a 24-month shelf life, and is intended for one-time use.

Together, these products represent over 30 years of science and innovation in the development of collagen technology.
