 Project objective

Silk Biomaterials is a nanotechnology platform company. Its goal is to revolutionize the €85bn global tissue engineering market by leveraging the biomimetic properties and the mechanical advantages of silk. SilkByPass, a device designed for the regeneration of small blood vessels, will be the first product developed by Silk Biomaterials. About 560k/year coronary artery bypass graft surgeries (CABG) are performed in OECD countries. The current golden standard for CABG is autograft (mainly saphenous vein, umbilical vein and mammary artery) and very often more than one graft is required for each procedure. However, autografts are not always available and present several drawbacks: so, there is a global urgent need for man-made grafts. Very few synthetic grafts are on the market and, due to their very poor results, they are used only when autografts previously failed. There is also a need for man-made solutions for peripheral blood vessels, like saphenous veins and carotids. For those vessels there are no autografts available and small calibre synthetic grafts fail in restoring the bloodstream. Our innovative nanotechnology stimulates faster natural human tissue regeneration, with no rejection risks or use of drugs. In addition to that, it is cheaper than other synthetic grafts, allows for easy surgery and doesn’t produce any dangerous degradation product in the patient’s body. Key opinion leaders, clinicians, venture capitalists and medical device companies have already recognized its commercial potential, which is estimated to be around €3.9bn annually in OECD countries. The feasibility assessment to be undertaken in Phase 1 will help Silk Biomaterials further de-risk its technological/commercial viability and plan for a series of activities requiring Phase 2 funding (i.e.: clinical trials, reimbursement negotiations, distribution and licensing agreements, etc.) that will improve the investment readiness of our company and strengthen its long term sustainability.
