The data being presented is encouraging as it further underscores the efficacy of SentrX's methods and products. The information will also support future independent studies conducted throughout the country as scientists strive to increase their scientific knowledge on how to effectively treat equine and small animal wounds.
Chicago (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
SentrX Animal Care, Inc., a leading provider of innovative healing biomaterials for horses and small animals, today announced that it will present new, forward thinking research titled, "Enhanced Wound Healing in Horses and Dogs Using Crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid-Based Films" at the Society for Biomaterials 2007 Annual Meeting held in Chicago, April 18-21. SentrX Animal Care's Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Brenda Mann, will make the presentation. This will be Mann's eighth time presenting at the Society for Biomaterials.
Mann was invited to present SentrX Animal Care's research at the conference after a stringent peer review process. Mann's presentation will focus on how modified hyaluronic acid-based films accelerated reepithelialization of full-thickness wounds on the legs of both horses and dogs. The presentation will also highlight recommendations for future research, specifically focusing on how to create more effective treatment regimens and new product formulation. Mann's poster presentation will be available for viewing beginning April 19th in the main exhibit hall of the conference as well as at http://www.sentrxanimalcare.com.
Dr. Mann, a bioengineer and patent agent, has extensive experience in tissue engineering and wound healing. She received the Rice University Outstanding Woman Award in 1996, and the Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology in 2000. Dr. Mann was a founding faculty member of the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, and now serves on its Advisory Council. She is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Utah, and holds an adjunct faculty position at the University of Texas at El Paso.
The Society for Biomaterials is a professional society that promotes advances in all phases of materials research and development by encouragement of cooperative educational programs, clinical applications, and professional standards in the biomaterials field. The 2007 Annual Meeting of the Society for Biomaterials will cover three main sections: Nano to Macro Scale, Laboratory to Clinical Application and Past to Future.
"We are pleased to present our research at the Society for Biomaterials annual conference," said Dr. Richard Koehn, President and CEO of SentrX Animal Care. "The data being presented is encouraging as it further underscores the efficacy of SentrX's methods and products. The information will also support future independent studies conducted throughout the country as scientists strive to increase their scientific knowledge on how to effectively treat equine and small animal wounds."
