AxoGen (OTCBB: AXGN) is a leading regenerative medicine company with a portfolio of proprietary products and technologies for peripheral nerve reconstruction and regeneration. Every day, people suffer traumatic injuries or undergo surgical procedures that impact the function of their peripheral nerves. Peripheral nerves provide the pathways for both motor and sensory signals throughout the body and their damage can result in the loss of function and feeling. In order to improve surgical reconstruction and regeneration of peripheral nerves, AxoGen has developed and licensed patented and patent-pending technologies, which are used in its portfolio of products. This portfolio includes Avance Nerve Graft, a commercially available allograft nerve for bridging nerve discontinuities (a gap created when the nerve is severed) of 5mm to 70mm in length. Avance® Nerve Graft is sterilized and processed using a patented cleaning process that preserves the inherent and relevant structural characteristics of the tissue, allowing regenerating axons to grow through the scaffold to the motor or sensory organ.
AxoGen's portfolio also includes AxoGuard Nerve Connector, a coaptation aid allowing for close approximation of severed nerves, and AxoGuard Nerve Protector, a bioscaffold used to reinforce a coaptation site, wrap a partially severed nerve or isolate and protect nerve tissue.
AxoGen is bringing the science of nerve repair to life with thousands of surgical implants of AxoGen products performed in hospitals and surgery centers across the United States, including military hospitals serving U.S. service men and women.
AxoGen is the parent of its wholly owned operating subsidiary, AxoGen Corporation. AxoGen's principal executive office and operations are located in Alachua, FL.
