Fibrocell Science, Inc. (OTCBB: FCSC) is a cell therapy company focused on the development of a line of autologous tissue regeneration products for aesthetic, medical, and scientific applications. Using Fibrocell Science's patented process, a patient’s own fibroblast cells are harvested using a minimally invasive skin procedure, then processed, multiplied, purified, cryopreserved and re-injected as personalized therapy. Fibroblasts are cells that contribute to the production of collagen essential in the formation of connective tissue fibers. These matrix fibers are critical to the strength and elasticity of the skin.
Skin and Allergy News had a report on Fibrocell's LAVIV that stated:
"The autologous cellular product azficel-T produced significant improvement in acne scarring compared with placebo, according to new study results reported at the annual meeting of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
