Cook Biotech's products are derived from proprietary extracellular matrix
(ECM) technology using proprietary manufacturing processes.
The Extracellular Matrix
for Vascular Repair has been implanted in more than 30,000 procedures.
The Extracellular Matrix
for Vascular Repair is a 510(k) FDA cleared medical device, intended for use as a patch material for the repair and reconstruction of peripheral vasculature including the carotid, renal, iliac, femoral and tibial blood vessels.
In essence, these growth factors work in harmony to nourish and restore the functionality and appearance of the extracellular matrix
to help retain healthy, youthful skin.

Lamina propria is the luminal portion of the propria-submucosa, which includes a dense layer of extracellular matrix
and serosal layer.
Since 1999, an estimated 2 million patients worldwide have received an extracellular matrix
implant, the company estimates.
Importantly, these findings could have broader relevance to other biological systems where living cells are enmeshed within and surrounded by an extracellular matrix
, such as in biofilms, which are associated with many human infectious diseases.
When significant muscle volume is lost, the physical and chemical cues provided by the extracellular matrix
are missing, and the volumetric muscle loss is instead replaced with scar tissue," said Jeffrey Wolchok, assistant professor of biomedical engineering.
The anionic and non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA), is an essential component of the extracellular matrix
The podosome rosettes set the scene for global extracellular matrix
degradation and internalization.
These rows sit on top of, and are surrounded by, a dense scaffolding of proteins known as the extracellular matrix
They cover the extracellular matrix
molecules and their importance in pathobiology and signaling; the function of glycans; the structure, pathobiology, and signaling of proteoglycans; the biological significance of matrix proteinases in health and disease; extracellular matrix
cell surface receptors, insights into the folding, assembly, and functions of collagen; emerging aspects in the extracellular matrix
pathobiology; and targeting the tumor microenvironment at the extracellular matrix
Thus far, this is the closest we've become to incorporating into engineered tissues electronic components near the size of the structures of the extracellular matrix
that surrounds cells within tissues," said Daniel Kohane, MD, PhD, of the Department of Anesthesia at Boston Children's Hospital and leader of the study.
If the tissue's architecture is damaged, if the extracellular matrix
loses integrity, signals sent to nearby cells change.
