    Press Release:
    AMNIOX Study Confirms Benefits of CLARIX FLO for Plantar Fasciitis
    Study Demonstrates Decreased Pain and Improved Functional Recovery
    March 30, 2017
    ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMNIOX Medical, Inc., a TissueTech, Inc. company, announced today the results of a study demonstrating the application of its unique cryopreserved human umbilical cord tissue for the treatment of patients with plantar fasciitis. The findings were recently presented at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons in Las Vegas.

    In this study, forty-three patients received injections of CLARIX FLO human amniotic membrane and umbilical cord matrix, and were followed for 18 weeks. The authors concluded that injections of CLARIX FLO significantly decreased pain from baseline and improved overall functional recovery. Increasing dose resulted in better therapy outcomes.

    The study, Particulate Umbilical Cord/Amniotic Membrane for the Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, was authored by Dr. Ryan Scott of The CORE Institute in Phoenix, and Dr. David Garras of Midwest Orthopaedic Consultants and an Assistant Professor at University of Illinois at Chicago. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of debilitating heal pain. It affects up to 1 million patients annually in the United States and as many as 30 percent of those patients fail conservative therapy. The condition is characterized by an accumulation of small tears in the plantar fascia, causing the structure to weaken and become irritated, often to the point of interfering in daily activities. Previously available therapies have demonstrated inconsistent outcomes or have negative side effects.

    “These study results continue to demonstrate the compelling therapeutic benefits of a human tissue matrix composed of both umbilical cord and amniotic membrane,” said Tom Dugan, Chief Executive Officer of Amniox Medical. “Furthermore, Amniox Medical is the only provider of an injectable form of umbilical cord, allowing for the non-invasive delivery of the biological components of umbilical cord, which have proven regenerative properties.”

    In utero, wound healing occurs rapidly and with minimal scar. This restorative ability is innate to placental tissues, including umbilical cord and amniotic membrane. Heavy chain hyaluronic acid/pentraxin-3 is the key protein complex present in these tissues to orchestrate the healing process. Amniox Medical is the first provider of a human tissue allograft composed of both umbilical cord and amniotic membrane. Amniox utilizes its proprietary CryoTek™ process, a cryopreservation technology, to preserve the biological and structural integrity of the native tissue and published studies have demonstrated that the CryoTek process more effectively preserves the structural and biological integrity of the tissue.

    About Amniox Medical, Inc:
    Founded in 2011 to serve the orthopedic and wound care markets, Amniox Medical is dedicated to developing and marketing regenerative therapies processed from umbilical cord and amniotic membrane utilizing its proprietary CryoTek technology. This process has been proven to preserve the innate biological and structural properties of the matrix, which can then be transplanted to adult wound and surgical environments. Amniox Medical procures its tissue through elective donation following healthy live birth via Cesarean section. Thorough donor screening is performed to ensure safety of its products.

    Does anyone have any experience with Amniox FLO injection for Achilles tendinitis? I have used amniox in the OR for a 6 cm plantar fascia tear that was still painful after conservative tx and it healed swiftly with pain resolved in 2-3wks. I have not used the injectable in the office and was wondering if anyone had any experience?
