SkinBioTherapeutics shortlisted for Best Technology at European Mediscience Awards 2019
Manchester, UK – 16 May 2019 - SkinBioTherapeutics plc (AIM: SBTX or the “Company”), a life sciences company focused on skin health, has been shortlisted for Best Technology at the European Mediscience Awards 2019.
Now in its 18th year, the European Mediscience Awards recognises the successes and achievements of private and publicly quoted healthcare, biotech and life science companies from across Europe. Over 500 European companies and their corporate advisors, analysts, fund managers, commentators and peers will be in attendance at the awards dinner.
The award category is for a technology that, in the eyes of the Voting Panel, is innovative, well funded, and capable of significant commercial success. The technology concerned could have been developed within the organisation or acquired.
SkinBioTherapeutics has been nominated for its proprietary platform technology, SkinBiotix®, which is based on discoveries made by Professor Cath O’Neill and Professor Andrew McBain at the University of Manchester.
The SkinBiotix® platform, which applies lysates derived from probiotic bacteria, has been shown to improve the barrier effect of skin models, protect skin models from infection and repair skin models. Recent independent human study data demonstrated that SkinBiotix® is safe, well tolerated and has efficacy in certain age groups when applied to healthy skin.
Professor Cath O’Neill, CEO of SkinBioTherapeutics, said:
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for Best Technology at this year’s European Mediscience Awards. Regardless of the result, for SkinBiotix® to be recognised among so many other fantastic technologies is a proud moment. This follows on the recent positive human study data which validated the technology. We are all looking forward to the awards night on 13 June and wish luck to all the other nominees.”
