Webinar Recording: Orthox
We recently held a webinar featuring a presentation from Dr Nick Skaer, CEO of portfolio company Orthox.
Orthox has developed FibroFix™, a silk-based technology for creating regenerative knee implants for patients with cartilage damage. The technology is based on a protein produced by the silk moth, Bombyx mori, which is moulded into a structure that supports and promotes tissue regeneration in the joint. The high tensile strength, flexibility and biocompatibility of silk-based materials make them an excellent prospect for structural implants, where the alternative is costly knee replacement surgery. Orthox’s lead product, FibroFix™ Cartilage, will target articular cartilage in the knee, and could be adapted for other articulating joints e.g., shoulder, ankle, hip and elbow or other human tissues. FibroFix™ Cartilage is currently undergoing preclinical assessment with first in human trials anticipated in late Q4 2021.
