Notice of cyber security incident

 

Leeds, 28 January 2020 - Tissue Regenix Group (AIM:TRX) ("Tissue Regenix" or the "Company") the regenerative medical devices company, today reports that it has been subject to a cyber security incident which involved unauthorised access to its computer systems, and those of its third-party IT service provider, in the United States.  The Company took immediate steps to respond and manage the incident, appointing external specialists, including forensic cyber security experts to investigate the circumstances and scope of the incident. These investigations are ongoing.

About Tissue Regenix

Tissue Regenix is a leading medical devices company in the field of regenerative medicine. Tissue Regenix was formed in 2006 when it was spun-out from the University of Leeds, UK. The company's patented decellularisation ('dCELL®') technology removes DNA and other cellular material from animal and human soft tissue leaving an acellular tissue scaffold which is not rejected by the patient's body and can then be used to repair diseased or worn out body parts. Current applications address many critical clinical needs such as sports medicine, heart valve replacement and wound care.

In November 2012 Tissue Regenix Group plc set up a subsidiary company in the United States - 'Tissue Regenix Wound Care Inc.', January 2016 saw the establishment of joint venture GBM-V, a multi- tissue bank based in Rostock, Germany.

In August 2017 Tissue Regenix acquired CellRight Technologies®, a biotech company that specializes in regenerative medicine and is dedicated to the development of innovative osteoinductive and wound care scaffolds that enhance healing opportunities of defects created by trauma and disease. CellRight's human osteobiologics may be used in spine, trauma, general orthopedic, foot & ankle, dental, and sports medicine surgical procedures.
