BCM Capability and Solution:
BCM grows a collagen pad/structure designed to regrow a patient’s lung tissues. These pads are surgically placed in strategic locations within the patient’s lungs. These BCM structured collagen sponge/pad gives the patient’s cells the framework that simulates the organ structure to facilitate regeneration of the local tissue.
