Humacyte Leadership to Present at Multiple Scientific Events in November

Nov 8, 2021

DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Humacyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: HUMA), a clinical-stage biotechnology platform company developing universally implantable bioengineered human tissue at commercial scale, today announced that leadership will present new data and additional information on its programs at several scientific events in November 2021.

“Humacyte is creating off-the-shelf universally implantable bioengineered human tissues to potentially transform the treatment of chronic disease and injuries. We’re pleased to share data on both our late- and early-stage development programs which contribute to our understanding of the broad applicability of our platform,” said Laura Niklason, M.D., Ph.D., Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Humacyte. “Notably, we will share new data on our LUNA200 commercial-scale manufacturing system, which is our groundbreaking bioengineering platform for producing human tissue at large scale. The advancement of the LUNA200 system supports our efforts toward commercialization of our Human Acellular Vessel (HAV). In addition, we will present the first data from our pre-clinical primate work using a small diameter HAV as a Blalock-Taussig (BT) shunt, to address congenital heart defects.”

About HAV
Human Acellular Vessels (HAV) are engineered off-the-shelf replacement vessels initially being developed for vascular repair, reconstruction and replacement. HAV is intended to overcome long-standing limitations in vessel tissue repair and replacement – it can be manufactured at commercial scale, it eliminates the need for harvesting a vessel from a patient, and clinical evidence suggests that it is non-immunogenic, infection-resistant, and can become durable living tissue. HAV is currently being evaluated in two Phase 3 trials in AV access and a Phase 2/3 trial for vascular trauma, and has been used in more than 460 patient implantations. It is the first product to receive Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and has also received FDA Fast Track designation.

About Humacyte
Humacyte, Inc., (Nasdaq: HUMA) is developing a disruptive biotechnology platform to deliver universally implantable bioengineered human tissues and organs designed to improve the lives of patients and transform the practice of medicine. The Company develops and manufactures acellular tissues to treat a wide range of diseases, injuries and chronic conditions. Humacyte’s initial opportunity, a portfolio of human acellular vessels (HAVs), is currently in late-stage clinical trials targeting multiple vascular applications, including vascular trauma repair, arteriovenous access for hemodialysis, and peripheral arterial disease. Pre-clinical 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 HAVs were the first product to receive the FDA’s Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) expedited review designation and received priority designation for the treatment of vascular trauma by the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
