FORT WORTH, Texas, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthpoint Biotherapeutics today announced that it has acquired Regranex® Gel, along with the corresponding intellectual property (including patents), from Systagenix. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

About Regranex® Gel

Regranex® Gel (0.01% Becaplermin) is a recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF) and was the first biotechnology product approved for the treatment of lower extremity diabetic neuropathic ulcers that extend into the subcutaneous tissue or beyond, and have adequate blood supply, when used as an adjunct to, and not a substitute for, good ulcer care practices including initial sharp debridement, pressure relief and infection control. In clinical trials, Regranex® Gel in conjunction with good ulcer care demonstrated a statistically significant increase in the incidence of complete healing (defined as complete ulcer closure) versus placebo gel. It is not known if Regranex® Gelis effective for the treatment of pressure ulcers or ulcers that are due to poor blood flow (circulation). It is not known if Regranex® Gelis safe and effective in children under 16 years of age.
