S coating consists of a thin layer of spider silk proteins manufactured by AMSilk.

In this study surgeons and AMSilk researchers could show that the AMSilk spider silk covering significantly reduces the rate of major post-operative problems, such as capsular fibrosis, capsular thickness, hardening, and inflammation. These positive effects are based on a reduction of the typical foreign body-induced differentiation and infiltration of immune cells. The coating also outcomes in a change in collagen digesting and fibers formation in the scar tissue formation – consistent with a lower life expectancy threat of capsule formation over time.Stephens, Ph.D., Valerie Laundy, F.I.M.L.S., Sandosh Padmanabhan, M.D., Ph.D., Anna Zawadzka, Julia M.
