Cardium Therapeutics announced the launch of Excellagen (bovine Type I collagen gel, 2.6%), a syringe-based wound care product for the management of diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and other dermal wounds. Excellagen is a fibrillar collagen-based gel that is topically applied through pre-filled, single-use 0.5mL syringes.

Excellagen is intended for physician use following surgical debridement procedures, and is engineered to support a favorable wound healing environment for non-healing lower extremity ulcers in diabetic patients.  Its optimized biocompatible gel formulation requires application at only one- or two-week intervals. It is recommended that Excellagen be applied following surgical debridement in the presence of blood cells and platelets, which are involved with the release of endogenous growth factors.
