Collagen Solutions to Exhibit at 18th ESSKA Conference
"European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy"
Dates: 9-12 May, SEEC, Glasgow

Collagen Solutions Plc (AIM: COS), the developer and manufacturer of biomaterials and regenerative medicines for the enhancement and extension of human life, confirms that it will be exhibiting at the prestigious ESSKA conference being held in Glasgow between 9-12 May.

The ESSKA Congress, held every two years, is a major event in the pan-European calendar that brings together leading medical specialists, including orthopaedic surgeons, clinicians and scientists.

Collagen Solutions will be primarily highlighting the recent positive data reported for its most advanced regenerative proprietary product, ChondroMimetic®, an arthroscopic, single-surgery, cost-effective solution for osteochondral defect repair. Earlier this year, the Company announced positive eight year follow-on data for ChondroMimetic® demonstrating durable cartilage regeneration in keyhole knee surgery. These results have allowed Collagen Solutions to begin the submission process to re-establish the CE Mark.

Commenting on the conference, Jamal Rushdy, CEO said: "We are delighted to be exhibiting at the pre-eminent ESSKA where we will be showcasing ChondroMimetic®. This conference will give us the opportunity to actively engage with specialists and potential partners. Being able to demonstrate the key advantages of ChondroMimetic® over current therapies within this venue is a key part of our strategy of successfully commercialising ChondroMimetic®."
