DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Humacyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: HUMA), a clinical-stage biotechnology platform company developing universally implantable, bioengineered human tissue at commercial scale, announced it will host an in-person KOL event on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 3:00pm ET at The New York EDITION Hotel.
The event will feature Michael Curi, MD, MPA (Rutgers New Jersey Medical School) and his patient Devin Barnett, who will discuss the recently announced top line clinical data from the Humacyte Phase 2/3 V005 vascular trauma trial, the unmet clinical need in treating these injuries, and the use of the Human Acellular Vessel™ (HAV™) in repairing blood vessels.
The HAV is an off-the-shelf, universally implantable bioengineered human tissue, that is being studied in traumatic vascular injury and other vascular diseases. The HAV has received priority designation for the treatment of vascular trauma by the U.S. Department of Defense and Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

He completed his surgical residency at University of Chicago where he spent an additional 2 years performing cutting-edge research into the treatment of vascular disease utilizing gene therapy and novel biological agents. He then completed an advanced fellowship in Vascular & Endovascular Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, where he trained under Dr. Juan Parodi, inventor of the aortic stent graft. He has published many articles in leading vascular journals, authored chapters in surgical textbooks on aortic aneurysms, and has been nationally recognized for his work in vascular research. He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, Society of Vascular Surgery, Peripheral Vascular Surgical Society, and The Eastern Vascular Society and is an investigator on the V005 trial.
Humacyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: HUMA) is developing a disruptive biotechnology platform to deliver universally implantable bioengineered human tissues, advanced tissue constructs, and organ systems designed to improve the lives of patients and transform the practice of medicine. The Company develops and manufactures acellular tissues with the potential to treat a wide range of diseases, injuries, and chronic conditions. Humacyte’s initial opportunity, a portfolio of HAVs, is currently in late-stage clinical trials targeting multiple vascular applications, including vascular trauma repair, AV access for hemodialysis, and peripheral arterial disease. Preclinical development is also underway in coronary artery bypass grafts, pediatric heart surgery, treatment of type 1 diabetes, and multiple novel cell and tissue applications. Humacyte’s 6mm HAV for AV access in hemodialysis was the first product candidate to receive the FDA’s Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) designation and has also received FDA Fast Track designation. Humacyte’s 6mm HAV for urgent arterial repair following extremity vascular trauma also has received RMAT designation. The HAV received priority designation for the treatment of vascular trauma by the U.S. Secretary of Defense. For more information, visit www.Humacyte.com.
