About Macrocure Ltd.
Founded in 2008, Macrocure Ltd. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing a novel therapeutic platform to address chronic and hard-to-heal wounds, such as DFUs and VLUs. The Company's novel approach is to treat and close chronic and other hard-to-heal wounds by injecting the human body's own wound healing and regenerative components directly into the wound itself.
Macrocure's lead product candidate, CureXcell, is a unique combination of living human white blood cells that have been activated to facilitate the healing process and stimulate wound closure. CureXcell addresses each phase of healing in the impaired wound, including the production of growth factors and other biochemical factors involved in fibroblast activation, cell migration and extracellular matrix production, stimulating the body's natural healing process. CureXcell is currently in two pivotal, Phase III, double-blind clinical trials targeting a broad indication for the treatment of all types of wounds below the knee.
