Empowered Patient Podcast: Developing Autologous Solution to Treat Diabetic Foot Ulcers


An Empowered Patient Podcast at Medical and Pharma Insider hosted by Karen Jagoda


Dr. Ryan Mathis, Vice President of Commercial Strategy at PolarityTE, focuses on bringing regenerative medicine into clinical practice, particularly for treating diabetic foot ulcers and other forms of complex wounds.


Ryan says, "So, we're trying to solve this problem by developing SkinTE, which is revolutionizing the science for these hard-to-close wounds. The product itself is an autologous product, meaning we use a patient's own skin to produce the product. Within your skin, there are regenerative cellular populations themselves, most highly focused around your hair follicles, that have the ability to heal wounds. And so, when you normally get a cut, those cells mobilize and move up towards the surface of the skin and heal the wounds."
