TELA Bio, Inc. Key Developments

TELA Bio, Inc Launches OviTex Reinforced BioScaffolds for Ventral Hernia Repair and Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

TELA Bio, Inc. announced the commercial launch of the company's OviTex portfolio of products for use in ventral hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction following U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(K) clearance. OviTex RBSs feature an embedded polymer and an intact extracellular matrix (ECM), a biologic building block derived from ovine rumen, in layered constructs designed for multi-directional cell repopulation and healthy tissue remodeling. The OviTex portfolio includes six products with a range of sizes, thicknesses, and degrees of reinforcement that allows surgeons to choose the appropriate product for each procedure and surgical technique. OviTex RBSs are available with either permanent (polypropylene) polymer or resorbable (polyglycolic acid) polymer reinforcement. The FDA granted 510(K) clearance for the resorbable polymer products in March 2016 and recently granted the same clearance for permanent polymer products in June 2016. The company is poised to enroll post-market clinical studies following initial commercialization.

Lifecell Obtains Preliminary Injunction Preventing TELA Bio’s Launch of its TELAMax Hernia Mesh

Acelity announced that the Superior Court of New Jersey, Somerset County, has granted LifeCell Corporation's request for a preliminary injunction in a trade secret and unfair competition case against TELA Bio, Inc. and two of its executive officers. The preliminary injunction (Case No. SOM-C-12013-15) prohibits TELA Bio from selling TELAMax, its hernia mesh product, in the United States until the completion of a trial, which has not yet been scheduled. In addition, the injunction prevents TELA Bio from recruiting or hiring current or former LifeCell employees and restrains TELA Bio from destroying evidence in this case. The injunction was granted based on a complaint filed by LifeCell in March alleging, among other things, that TELA Bio and two of its founders misappropriated trade secrets and proprietary information and engaged in unfair competition. The Court initially granted a temporary restraining order against TELA Bio in March, and following a hearing on April 30, the Court granted LifeCell's request for a preliminary injunction on May 8, 2015.
