Avita Medical announces Recell trial results presentation
AVITA Medical announced that a medical education symposium on the use of the RECELL Autologous Cell Harvesting Device was held at the U.S. Midwest Region Burn Conference in Minneapolis. The symposium was led by Jeffrey Carter, MD, FACS, Medical Director of University Medical Center New Orleans Burn Center and Associate Professor of Surgery at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine. Dr. Carter also presented at the conference the results from two U.S. pivotal clinical trials demonstrating the effectiveness and clinical benefits of the RECELL System. The FDA recently approved the RECELL System to treat acute thermal burns in patients 18 years and older. The medical symposium was organized as the first step in training U.S. physicians who had not previously treated patients with the RECELL System in advance of FDA approval in clinical trials or in the Compassionate Use program. The Midwest Region Burn Conference is one of the series of conferences sponsored by the American Burn Association each year.
