The placenta is a maternal-fetal organ that develops from the fetus and attaches to the uterus during pregnancy. The placenta is responsible for, among other things, providing the growing fetus with oxygen and nutrients while at the same time removing toxins.1 It also serves as a barrier between maternal and fetal compartments. Once the baby is born, the
placenta detaches from the uterine wall and is expelled from the body. Placental tissue can be harvested after a healthy, concluded birth and then processed into a human, placental tissue allograft.
Acellular Placental ECM Tissue Allografts
An acellular, placental extracellular matrix allograft is a soft connective tissue graft generated by a decellularization4 process that preserves the intact extracellular placental matrix. Upon implantation, this structure may serve as a scaffold to support the repair, reconstruction, replacement, or supplementation of the patient’s own tissue.5
Placental Tissues are FDA Regulated
Placental-derived tissue is regulated by the FDA under 21 CFR Part 1271 and Section 361
of the Public Health Service Act.
