NuVision Biotherapies at the ESCRS’s 41st Congress: Advancing Ophthalmic Care through Clinical Efficacy and Innovative Solutions

NuVision Biotherapies is honoured to make its inaugural appearance at the European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) prestigious 41st Congress, taking place in Vienna, Austria.

Our team of clinical specialists will be present at Stand C224 to discuss evidence-based, innovative approaches to ophthalmic care.

Innovations to Discover at Stand C224

 Omnigen: Our proprietary dehydrated amniotic membrane offers an evidence-based solution for managing a range of ocular surface pathologies.

OmniLenz: Developed to synergistically work with Omnigen, this specialised bandage contact lens is crucial in enabling sutureless application of amniotic membrane to aid the management of moderate-to-severe dry eye disease in a non-scheduled outpatient setting.

We invite healthcare professionals, clinicians, and international partners interested in advancing patient outcomes to visit us for a comprehensive discussion at the congress.

About NuVision Biotherapies

Based in MediCity, Nottingham, NuVision Biotherapies is a regenerative medicine company spun out from the University of Nottingham. NuVision was established in 2015, founded on investment from Mercia Fund Management, to develop and bring to market cutting edge, regenerative therapies.

About Omnigen

Omnigen Tereo processed amniotic membrane, is a patented dry preparation of human amniotic membrane.  Amniotic membrane is the innermost layer of the placental sac, which protects and holds the foetus during pregnancy.  NuVision upcycles and transforms this waste product of birth into an effective wound care product. The Tereo manufacturing process, developed at the University of Nottingham’s Academic Ophthalmology department, transforms this waste product of birth into a sterile and stable dry therapy that can be easily shipped and accessed anywhere in the world. Omnigen is applied directly to the wound dry and is rapidly and effectively rehydrated using surrounding moisture to immediately reactivate the beneficial properties to promote tissue repair and healing in a variety of ways. The product represents a unique and versatile “off-the-shelf” healing product, and it may be stored long-term. The Tereo process preserves the wound healing action and provides surgeons with an effective sight saving therapy that could provide a meaningful benefit to patients, including those suffering from ocular surface disease and conditions with unmet medical need.

Omnigen VIEW is an Omnigen product range that include central aperture windows enabling Omnigen to be applied to patients eye without covering the visual axis and impeding sight. 

About OmniLenz

OmniLenz is a specially-modified bandage contact lens designed to apply and hold Omnigen at the ocular surface without the need for sutures or surgery. OmniLenz is manufactured exclusively for NuVision by Menicon, UK. Omnigen can be applied by OmniLenz using a simple 4 – 6-minute procedure in an outpatient setting. The decision to apply Omnigen to the ocular surface using OmniLenz is at the discretion of the clinician. For the first time, the healing benefits of amniotic membrane can be routinely accessed in an outpatient setting, providing healthcare professionals with a new treatment option for a broader range of ocular surface diseases.
