Why AmnioFix Injectable?
Amniotic membrane products, including AmnioFix Injectable, have been the subject of many scientific publications evaluating its use in wound care, orthopedics,sports medicine, and a multitude of other surgical applications. The amniotic membrane tissue for AmnioFix Injectable is donated by healthy, consenting mothers undergoing scheduled Caesarean sections. The amniotic membrane is the cover surrounding the baby during pregnancy, and is typically discarded after the baby is born. The recovery of the membrane does not affect the baby or the delivery process. All tissue donors are tested for infectious diseases, similar to the testing done for blood donation. The amniotic membrane then undergoes a validated proprietary process to thoroughly cleanse and preserve the tissue.
What is AmnioFix Injectable?
AmnioFix Injectable is a human tissue allograft made from part of the human placenta, the amniotic membrane. Amniotic membrane has been used to treat painful conditions in the foot as well as hard-to-heal wounds and has been used clinically in various forms for almost 100 years. AmnioFix Injectable contains natural components, called growth factors, that may help promote and speed up the body’s normal healing process. Growth factors are powerful agents that our bodies produce to signal cells to come to the target site, help the site to heal, and help your own cells restore the damaged tissue. AmnioFix Injectable does not contain live stem cells and is not categorized as a stem cell injection. AmnioFix Injectable allografts are procured and processed in the United States according to the standards and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
