EternoGen’s CG NanoMatrix features collagen augmented with gold nanoparticles, which protects the proteins from being quickly broken down. Injected into the face as a dermal filler, it forms a strong nanomatrix that helps rebuild the skin’s natural scaffolding and smooths facial lines and folds.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and a major component of bone, giving it its tensile strength. The EternoGen team hopes to use its gold nanoparticle collagen to develop therapies to treat various medical conditions, including the brittle bones of osteoporosis.
