AxoGen Nerve Regeneration announces a strategic partnership with LifeNet Health, a leading allograft bio-implant company, for the processing of Avance Nerve Grafts. Launched in 2007, Avance Nerve Graft is the only off-the-shelf product available that gives surgeons the option to repair damaged peripheral nerves with human allograft nerve. Peripheral nerves enable communication between the brain and muscles or senses. Avance Nerve Graft allows surgeons to perform the typically preferred nerve-to-nerve repair while eliminating the need for a second donor site surgery.
