Revolutionizing the healthcare with functional biomaterials: Biologics incorporated Biocellulose-Based Solutions

Image Description

In our unwavering commitment to advancing the treatment of “untreatable”, at Biovico, we continue to explore further innovative approaches that promise new hope for patients across the all fields of medicine. We want to use our experience and know-how, founded on the introduction of our previous groundbreaking solutions like the one based autologous WNT pathway inhibitor used in OA therapy. Thus, recently we aimed to explore the freshly discovered areas of regenerative medicine and biomaterials of the future, which led us to development of the whole new approach based on integrated biocellulose and biologics dedicated for each specific treatment.

Why biocellulose and what is so unique about it?

Biocellulose is a natural and biocompatible material produced by non-pathogenic bacteria that have been modified in order to synthesize this material in specially designed the bioreactors. Importantly, by controlling the synthesis conditions we can grow the bacterial cellulose in various shapes and forms, adjusted to exhibit certain functional features useful in dedicated solution. We are so excited with biocellulose as biomaterial as it has as a number of remarkable properties that makes it an ideal candidate for delivering the drugs or biologics and treat with high precision different pathologies, from chronic wounds management to nerve regeneration:

1. Enhanced biocompatibility: Biocellulose as a completely inert material is highly biocompatible, reducing the risk of adverse reactions when used as a delivery system for biologics.

2. Lack of cytotoxicity: Cell culture and in vivo experiments showed that biocellulose neither exerted cytotoxic effects nor genotoxic effects such as mutagenicity, carcinogenicity or teratogenicity. Cells of different source and linage can grow and differentiate on biocellulose constructs with high intensity.

3. Ultra-high purity: Unlike plant-derived cellulose, biocellulose is chemically pure, free of lignin, hemicellulose, pectin, and other biogenic components. It can be purified to endotoxin values of <20 endotoxin units/device, which falls within the acceptable FDA range of endotoxin values for implants.

4. Sustained Release: Biocellulose can be used as carrier for a controlled and sustained release of different factors, including biologics, ensuring a long-lasting therapeutic effect and reducing the need for frequent delivery of factors.

5. Improved bioavailability: The unique structure of biocellulose can enhance the bioavailability of biologics, ensuring that a higher percentage of the administered drug reaches its intended target within the treating area.

Based on above-mentioned facts, there is no surprise that biocellulose has recently emerged as a revolutionary material in modern healthcare, offering a myriad of applications that will and in some cased already did transform the medical landscape. As a company at the forefront of biocellulose production, we aim to delve into the versatile nature of this biomaterial and its profound impact on various healthcare sectors.

Biologics are the foundation of modern treatment

Biologics are a class of innovative drugs derived from living organisms, such as genetically modified cells or bacteria. Because of their nature, biologics can use the molecular targeting mechanisms in order to inhibit disease process at the cellular level. Because of this high precision, they hold immense promise in the treatment across all medicine areas, offering targeted therapeutic options with minimal side effects and in therapeutic areas where the classical pharmacology based on chemical agents fails. At Biovico, we want to harness the power of biologics to revolutionize different disease management in the following ways:

1. Advanced Targeted Therapies: Biologics allow us to precisely target the underlying causes of different pathologies at the molecular level. By developing biologic agents that focus on key players within the specific cellular pathway, known for its key role in the disease, we can precisely modulate the signaling processes, aiming for the disease management rather than just symptom relief.

2. Regenerative Potential: Biologics have regenerative capabilities. By incorporating growth factors, stem cells, or other precise biologics that will activate regenerative pathways, we can promote the natural repair of tissue that has already being damaged by an ongoing disease process.

3. Personalized Treatment: With biologics, personalized medicine becomes a reality. By analyzing each patient's unique genetic and cellular profiles, we can tailor biologic treatments to their specific needs, optimizing therapeutic outcomes.

Bringing two links together for creation of the cutting-edge disease treatment: How Biovico can use the full potential of biocellulose and biologics combined?

As we navigate the complexities of modern healthcare, our commitment to excellence and innovation drives us forward. We wanted to link all the best properties of biocellulose as biomaterial and targeted treatment with biologics in order to create the ideal treatment options.

With biocellulose in different forms integrated with biologics specially selected for each treatment, we can offer a treatment solution for numerous dedicated specialties like orthopedics, dermatology, neurosurgery, complicated wound care and tissue engineering.

Thus, our journey towards a healthier, more sustainable future is paved with the remarkable properties of biologics integrated in biocellulose, and our company is proud to be a leading force in this transformative field as we plan to offer treatment solution is following areas:

1. Orthopedics

Orthopedic applications of biologics integrated on biocellulose finds its use particularly in the development of scaffolds for bone, cartilage, tendon and ligaments regeneration. Biocellulose provides a three-dimensional structure that mimics the natural extracellular matrix, facilitating the growth of bone cells and promoting faster healing and selected biologics can induce matrix production and cell differentiation. We are certain that biologics integrated on biocellulose will bring solution for recovery of tissues that today are not possible to regenerate.

2. Dermatology

Beyond the use in difficult to heal wound, biologics integrated on biocellulose has found remarkable applications in skin traumatology. Due to its breathable and conforming nature, biocellulose patch can be used in heavily burned patients. Subsequently, biologics integrated on biocellulose patch can inhibit heavy inflammation, stop potential bacterial growth and induce tissue regeneration.

3. Ophthalmology

In ophthalmology, biologics integrated on biocellulose are proving to be a game-changer. The material's transparency, biocompatibility, and ability to retain moisture make it an excellent candidate for ocular applications. Biocellulose based contact lenses with integrated biologics can offer enhanced comfort and extended wearability, with additional regeneration properties required in disease like cataract or dry eye syndrome. Moreover, research is underway to develop biocellulose implants for sustained biologics delivery within the eye, revolutionizing the treatment of conditions such as glaucoma.

4. Neurosurgery

The versatility of biologics integrated in biocellulose extends to even such high-end field of medicine as neurosurgery, where this link has shown promise in nerve regeneration and repair. Scaffold structures made from biocellulose provide a supportive environment for neural tissue growth, while selected biologics are able to induce axon elongation and myelin production. This opens avenues for innovative treatments in spinal cord injuries and peripheral nerve damage.

In conclusion, the use of biologics integrated in biocellulose in modern medicine extends far beyond traditional treatment with pharmacology. From dermatology to ophthalmology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, biologics integrated in biocellulose prove to be a versatile and indispensable treatment solution, that will contribute to the therapies advancements and enhance patient outcomes and redefine the possibilities of medical treatment. Our commitment to innovation drives us to explore and pioneer these applications, ensuring that biocellulose remains at the forefront of transformative healthcare solutions.
