Companies Developing Sealants, Glues and Anti-adhesion

Below is a preliminary list of the companies being profiled in the report #S175 on “Worldwide Surgical Sealants, Glues, Wound Closure and Anti-Adhesion Markets, 2009-2013”.

Note, please, that we have revised the report’s title to reflect that the report covers the “flip-side” of sealing and adhesion — anti-adhesion. Given the developing use of fibin sealants, ironically, in the prevention of post-surgical adhesions, it is a natural extension of the analysis to address anti-adhesion as well.

The readers should also note that the list of companies profiled in the forthcoming report #S175 is preliminary, subject to change as we complete research and determine relevant companies for coverage.
