REHOVOT, Israel, Aug. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- CollPlant Biotechnologies (NASDAQ: CLGN), a regenerative and aesthetics medicine company developing innovative technologies and products based on its non-animal-derived collagen for tissue regeneration and organ manufacturing, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023, and provided a corporate update on its programs.

CollPlant achieved a milestone related to its dermal filler program in collaboration with AbbVie, which triggered a related milestone payment in the second quarter of 2023.
CollPlant achieved a milestone related to its dermal filler program in collaboration with AbbVie, which triggered a related milestone payment in the second quarter of 2023.
"This quarter, we were very pleased to announce the achievement of an important milestone related to the dermal filler product developed in collaboration with our partner, AbbVie, for which we received a $10 million payment. We also announced a joint development and commercialization agreement with Stratasys, a world-leader in additive manufacturing that will initially focus on developing a bioprinting solution for the fabrication of our regenerative breast implants in development. Both collaborations are expected to allow us to continue our momentum towards reaching important upcoming milestones related to these programs, with the former providing a vehicle to maintain our strong cash position," said CollPlant's Chief Executive Officer, Yehiel Tal.

Mr. Tal continued, "One of our upcoming milestones will be initiating by the end of this year a second large-animal study to evaluate our regenerative breast implants. We have already established the trial infrastructure and look forward to providing an update as soon as we conclude this study."

Q2 and recent corporate highlights

Program development


CollPlant is planning to initiate a second large-animal study to evaluate commercial sized 3D bioprinted regenerative breast implants, by year end. This study follows the completion of the first large-animal study, the results of which were announced in January of this year. The first study demonstrated progressive stages of tissue regeneration after three months, as highlighted by the formation of maturing connective tissue and neovascular networks within the implants, with no adverse events reported.

In the U.S. alone, hundreds of thousands of people per year experience adverse events that range from autoimmune symptoms to the very serious breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). CollPlant's breast implants that are comprised of CollPlant's proprietary plant-derived rhCollagen and other biomaterials, are expected to regenerate breast tissue without eliciting immune response, and thus may provide a revolutionary alternative for aesthetic and reconstructive procedures, including postmastectomy for cancer patients.

Collaboration updates

In June, CollPlant announced the achievement of a milestone with respect to the clinical phase dermal filler product, which is under its collaboration agreement with AbbVie. According to the agreement, the achievement of this milestone triggered a $10 million payment from AbbVie to CollPlant. CollPlant has the potential to receive additional milestone payments as well as future royalties in accordance with its long-term collaboration with AbbVie for the dermal filler product.

In April, CollPlant announced a joint development and commercialization agreement with Stratasys to collaborate on the development of a printing solution to bio-fabrication of human tissues and organs using Stratasys' P3 technology-based bioprinter and CollPlant's rh-Collagen-based bioinks. The bioprinting solution is being designed to enable the production of scaffolds that will accurately mimic the physical properties of human tissues and organs. These scaffolds are to meet the product specification including resolution and reproducibility. The combined proprietary technologies are expected to enable the fabrication of tissues and organs that also possess differentiated regenerative properties. The first project focuses on the development of an industrial-scale solution for CollPlant's regenerative breast implants program. Under the agreement, both companies have also agreed to cross-promote each other's bioprinting products.

CollPlant is developing, together with Tel Aviv University and Sheba Medical Center, a system that enhances the physiological relevance of the human gut to provide a predictive personalized platform. CollPlant mimics the gut structure by 3D printing the gut tissue geometry in high resolution using its unique rhCollagen-based bioink formulation. This tissue model is to be used for evaluating therapy response in patients suffering from ulcerative colitis. Recently, the CollPlant team managed to successfully grow epithelial cells on the 3D printed scaffolds that mimic the gut tissue geometry. The Company expects to be able to provide an update on next steps for this program by the end of this year.

CollPlant remains engaged in partnering dialogs with several industry leaders and academic institutions interested in the Company's rhCollagen technology and expertise in 3D bioprinting to develop therapeutics and medical applications.

Commercial portfolio of bioink solutions

CollPlant's bioink platform is intended to enable its customers to streamline the process of new product development while also accelerating timelines and reducing overall costs. CollPlant's new bioink, Collink.3D-50L is the first bioink available in powder form which provides enhanced operational specificity and flexibility for the end-user because of its mechanical properties to address additional printing requirements of soft and hard tissues. These features of CollPlant's new bioink enable the end user to address a wide range of 3D bioprinting applications, including drug discovery, drug screening and tissue testing, as well as the development of transplantable tissues and organs.

Operational updates

In line with CollPlant's mission to build a company that operates and works towards solutions that support a sustainable environment, CollPlant recently recruited a dedicated manager to analyze, formulate and execute upon the set of standards for its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) program. This initiative is designed to help CollPlant meet the evolving standards applicable to publicly listed companies in the U.S., as well as help business partners and socially conscious investors better understand CollPlant's alignment with sustainable values – both operationally and as a component of its overall company mission.
