Neotherix has been invited to participate in an advanced woundcare mission to China from 8-14 September 2012. The mission, organised by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and Medilink UK, will allow the selected companies to showcase their products and technologies at the 5th International Wound Dressings Conference in Beijing. Representatives from China's woundcare industry, R&D organisations, hospitals and policy makers will be attending this high profile event, which includes 1:1 meetings, exhibition space and the opportunity to present at a "UK day" on 10 September.
Mike Raxworthy, Neotherix' Founder and CEO will be giving three presentations during the event. One will describe our electrospun regenerative scaffold technology and how that can be utilised in the development of novel products that enhance tissue repair. Another will focus on the products that Neotherix is developing, including recent progress made with our pipeline of EktoTherix, RegeniTherix and PhotoTherix. The remaining presentation will describe the use of non-woven materials and composites in the treatment of wounds, including a perspective on the possible future developments in this field.
Members of the mission will also spend a day in Guangzhou as guests of the Guangzhou International Biotech Island where they will meet Guangzhou-based wound management and tissue repair companies.
UKTI have noted that China's announcement in 2009 of a $124 billion investment over 3 years to reform its healthcare system and to develop its relatively immature advanced wound care market provides ample opportunity for UK companies. Neotherix is well placed to be involved as a partner in these developments.
