How Does Excellagen Formulated Collagen Work?
Collagen is the main component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein in mammals. In humans, it comprises approximately 30% of the protein found in the body. Due to its unique characteristics and diverse profile in human body functions, collagen is frequently selected from a variety of bio-compatible materials for use in tissue repair to support structural integrity, induce cellular infiltration and promote healing.
Type I collagen is the most abundant form of collagen in the human body. It is the dominant constituent of connective tissue and serves as the primary scaffold in tissue or organ repair processes, making it a logical choice for regenerative medicine products. It is found in tendons, ligaments, skin, artery walls, corneas, the endomysium surrounding muscle fibers, fibrocartilage, and the organic part of bones and teeth.
EXCELLAGEN IS A CELLULAR and/or TISSUE BASED PRODUCT (CTP)
Excellagen® is a CTP and is a xenograft; graft of skin, bone or collagen, etc. from another species to a human. Excellagen uses bovine collagen sourced only from Australia and New Zealand and uses the skin to produce the product. The product is refined and purified using an organic process. Because of its purification, it exhibits unique and outstanding healing characteristics with a fully functional 3-D matrix of extremely thin fibers. These fibers lead to fast cell proliferation and expedite tissue granulation, re-epithelization and ultimately complete wound repair even in difficult to heal wounds.
Endogenous Collagen Assembly
Collagen is essential for every phase of wound healing
Excellagen is a highly purified formulated homogenate of fibrillar bovine Type I collagen.
Excellagen's 3-dimensional fibrillar structure functions as a dermal scaffold, promoting chemotaxis, cellular adhesion, migration and proliferation to stimulate granulation tissue formation.
Highly controlled manufacturing process generates high molecular weight fibrillar form of collagen.
Formulated in a specialized physiologic buffer that provides protein stabilization with maintenance of Excellagen's key structural and functional properties.
