"This body of clinical data demonstrates AutoloGel's ability to accelerate wound healing in common wound etiologies and also shows its effectiveness on fistulas, pseudostomas, and pressure ulcers in persons with spinal cord injury, which are all notoriously difficult to heal wounds. In addition, the data shows that AutoloGel saves money while increasing healing rates and decreasing staff time," commented Carelyn P. Fylling, RN, MSN, CWS, CLNC, Cytomedix's Vice President of Professional Services.

"We are pleased to have these four posters presented at WOCN as it offers an ideal venue to reach and educate a large audience of clinicians who specialize in wound management on the clinical merits of AutoloGel to heal these challenging wounds.

Rosendale, Chief Executive Officer of Cytomedix. "Compelling clinical results such as these should favorably impact the adoption of AutoloGel in a variety of wounds and wound care settings, and further strengthen final negotiations with our potential top 20 global pharmaceutical partner."
