Kane Biotech Makes First Commercial Sale of revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel to ProgenaCare Global

Kane Also Signs Long-Term Manufacturing Agreement With Halo Pharma

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, June 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kane Biotech Inc. (TSX- V:KNE; OTCQB:KNBIF) (“Kane Biotech” or “Kane”) announces that it has made its first commercial-scale sale of revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel product (“revyve™”) to ProgenaCare Global LLC (“ProgenaCare”).

Kane has now completely fulfilled its obligation related to the USD$500,000 initial manufacturing scale up fee received upon signing an exclusive distribution agreement for the US wound care market in May 2023, after receiving U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel. Kane has subsequently been working with Halo Pharma on the technology transfer and manufacturing scale-up phases of product commercialization.

“This is another major milestone for Kane,” said Marc Edwards, President & CEO. “There has been a significant buildup of interest and demand for revyve™ amongst ProgenaCare’s customers as well as Kane’s existing and potential distributor network globally.”

“We are delighted to have revyve™ in full scale commercial production,” said Howard Walthall, CEO, ProgenaCare Global. “The feedback from patients and clinicians on the product from our limited initial launch has been excellent. With ample quantities now available, we look forward to being able to help even more patients along their healing journey.” 

Kane recently presented new in vitro data on the efficacy of revyve™ Antimicrobial Wound Gel at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC), Special Operations Medical Association (SOMA), and Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) conferences.

Kane also announces that it has signed a four-year commercial manufacturing services agreement with Halo Pharma for the manufacturing of revyve™. Manufacturing will take place at Halo Pharma’s cGMP compliant pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging facility located in Mirabel, Quebec. “We worked closely with Halo over the last year during the technology transfer and scale-up phases,” said Mr. Edwards. “We will be placing orders for revyve™ at full-scale manufacturing volumes as we look forward to meeting market demand for this product.”
