Development cooperation between Artimplant and Mölnlycke Health Care terminated

Development cooperation between Artimplant and Mölnlycke Health Care terminated The contract between Artimplant and Mölnlycke Health Care concerning development and licensing of products for wound healing has been terminated. "Artimplant's biomaterial Artelon has been tested over several years by Mölnlycke Health Care with the aim of developing products for the treatment of deep wounds. Artimplant's technology is very promising, but in consultation with Artimplant, we have chosen to terminate the project to focus on other prioritized projects," says Anders Husmark, Vice President, Business Area Wound Care at Mölnlycke Health Care. "We are of course disappointed that we cannot continue the project. However, possibilities are now created for Artimplant to use the results of the development and seek other ways of commercializing the Artelon platform for wound applications," says Tord Lendau, Artimplant's CEO. In the short term, the termination of the cooperation has no financial implications for Artimplant. Artimplant continues to further develop these products with focus on applications for esthetic and reconstructive surgery.
