BellaSeno’s Australian Breast Scaffold Trials Show Positive Interim Results

  • Resorbable breast scaffolds demonstrated a positive safety profile in one-year follow-up
  • No major complications or removals related to the scaffolds were observed
  • BellaSeno will launch a large-scale multicenter clinical trial involving over 100 patients

Leipzig, Germany/ Brisbane, Australia, June 12, 2024 – BellaSeno GmbH, a medtech company certified under ISO 13485 specializing in resorbable scaffolds developed using additive manufacturing, announced today that 10 breast scaffold patients and 5 pectus patients have successfully completed their one-year follow-up in BellaSeno´s Australian clinical trials.

This interim analysis, the first of its kind for breast implant trials using PCL scaffolds and fat transfer, confirms the favorable safety profile of the Company´s resorbable soft tissue implants. No major complications such as capsular contracture, calcifications, oil cysts, infections, tissue necrosis, or wound healing issues were observed. No scaffold removals or replacements were necessary, and no scaffold-related complications were observed in any patients six months post-surgery.

Data review by the Independent Data Safety Monitoring Committee confirmed that all adverse events were within the expected range of complications for removal / replacement surgeries. In general, the Clinical Investigators observed a trend towards higher patient satisfaction with breasts and quality of life associated with BellaSeno´s scaffolds compared to baseline (i.e. silicone implants). There was high acceptability and patients did not report awareness of the scaffold in situ after six to twelve months. Identical findings were made in the one-year follow up in pectus excavatum patients.

Based on the positive data, BellaSeno plans to initiate a pivotal clinical trial to obtain regulatory approval of the breast scaffolds.

“Following this favorable interim analysis, we are now well positioned to begin our pivotal clinical study to obtain full regulatory approval of our breast scaffolds in Europe and the U.S.,” said Mohit Chhaya, CEO of BellaSeno. “We are excited that our resorbable scaffolds do not only meet the desired safety criteria but have also shown an improvement of patients´ quality of life.”

“All patients have had consistently favorable outcomes in the follow-up ranging from six months to two years. We’re excited by the progress and at the end of this year will publish the detailed one-year interim analysis for the scientific community,” said Professor Owen Ung, Primary Investigator in the clinical trial.

So far, 41 patients have been successfully operated and received BellaSeno´s hard or soft tissue scaffolds (5 bone scaffolds, 36 breast or pectus scaffolds).
