GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sep 15, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Cytomedix, Inc. /quotes/zigman/3795200 CMXI +7.44% (the "Company"), a leading developer of biologically active regenerative therapies for wound care, inflammation and angiogenesis, today announced the launch of the Company's Hair Restoration Wound Care Program at the 19th Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons being held from September 14-18 in Anchorage, Alaska.
Cytomedix is showcasing the AutoloGel(TM) System at their exhibit where hair restoration surgeons can learn more about the benefits of AutoloGel PRP Gel to enhance outcomes in hair transplant surgery. In conjunction with this outreach, the Company introduced its web-based marketing initiative with the launch of www.prphairrestoration.com , a website designed to provide hair restoration specialists with the tools to integrate PRP Gel into their post-operative wound care protocols, the rationale for use and the science behind PRP for follicular unit transplant, as well as to generate new patient referrals. The site also provides a fast-growing list of surgeons offering AutoloGel PRP in their practice.
Alan J. Bauman, M.D., Board Certified hair restoration surgeon, Boca Raton, Florida, stated, "The use of AutoloGel PRP applied to hair transplant wounds has had a positive impact on the rate and quality of post-operative care. Both our experienced team and our patients are delighted with the simplicity and speed of the PRP gel technique and the visual improvement in wound recovery one day post-surgery."
We've found that the FDA-approved PRP wound healing system, Autologel, has been working very well to accelerate the wound healing in our NeoGraft FUE hair transplant patients. Decreased discomfort, inflammation and faster cosmetic recovery are some of the added benefits of PRP. --Dr. Alan Bauman
