An interim analysis demonstrates the efficacy of the Embrace Advanced Scar Therapy System from Neodyne Biosciences, within one of the most challenging scar-prone surgical procedures, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). The results of the first 28 patients to complete the six month assessment showed a highly significant difference between the expert blinded assessments of scar appearance for the Embrace treated as compared to the control (standard-of-care treated) incision sites (p = 0.007). Additionally, all other efficacy and tolerability related parameters were strongly positive, and in favor of the Embrace treatment versus that of standard-of-care, including the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scales (POSAS), physician and patient preference, and enthusiasm to recommend and to use in the future.
Embrace Advanced Scar Therapy delivers mechano-modulation therapy to the injury site and surrounding tissues. The device includes a simple disposable applicator that transfers a predetermined level of strain to a single use adhesive silicone sheet, which is then adhered over the closed scar. This unique mechanism of action provides a uniform compressive strain, or stress-shield around a closed scar, which can minimize collagen proliferation and formation of scar tissue.
