About Elastagen

Elastagen is an exciting clinical-stage medical technology company with an advanced tissue repair platform based on tropoelastin. Tropoelastin is the building block of elastin, a key protein component of the skin, arteries and lungs that gives tissue its elasticity. Elastagen’s revolutionary technology is based on recombinant human tropoelastin, which is identical that present in human tissue. Other products that "contain elastin" use animal-derived elastin fragments; Elastagen's synthetic tropoelastin-based biomaterial platform has greater potential for healing and other beneficial goals.

The Elastagen tissue repair platform, a single technology with many clinical applications, will include effective breakthrough treatments for acne scars, stretch marks, aesthetic skin repair and wound repair. Elastagen’s products will follow the Class III medical device regulatory pathway for both the US and Europe, leveraging the company’s years of industry knowledge and experience to drive product approval and commercialization.
