TEL AVIV – CollPlant, which makes products for tissue repair and organ manufacture into a recombinant human collagen, has launched a new research and development center in Israel.

The facilities will serve CollPlant for developing its products, including BioInks for 3D bioprint tissues and organs, and dermal fillings for medical aesthetics, said the company on Wednesday.

Collagen is a protein found in tissues such as tendons, skin, blood vessels and bones. CollPlant produces collagen from tobacco plants that have been genetically engineered with five human genes. Its first products approved for sale in Europe are used for tendonitis and wound care.

He will try to commercialize these products in the US, says Chairman Jonathan Rigby, adding: “We expect to secure more partnerships in the future.”

CollPlant also works on dermal fillings to inject into the wrinkles. Although existing fillers erode over time, the effects of human collagen are much longer, he told Reuters. The company expects approval for this product in 3 to 5 years.

In 2018, CollPlant signed an agreement with United Therapeutics Corp for the use of CollInland's BioInk for 3D bioprint of lung scaffolding with a long-term goal of transplanting lungs, subject to U regulatory approval.
