Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project
Sealantium Medical Ltd. developed a novel product, sFilm-FS, a polymeric film carrying biological glue.
sFilm-FS is a human body friendly bandage which is used to stop bleeding and body fluid leakage during surgery. The product is much more effective, fast and easier to use than any other standard of care. The product is absorbed by the body allowing full and effective healing of the injured tissue.
sFilm-FS is currently intended to be used to stop soft tissue bleeding during surgery, when control of bleeding by standard surgical methods (such as suture, ligature, cautery) is ineffective or impractical. sFilm-FS is also intended for use for sealing in gastrointestinal (GI) surgical procedures for prevention of leakage following intestinal surgery.
sFilm-FS was tested in various animal models. It was shown to be effective in controlling severe bleeding of soft tissue injuries and was effective in sealing leakage in punctured intestine animal models. Following these encouraging results, Sealantium Medical intends to complete the product’s development and test it for safety and efficacy in human clinical trails.
sFilm-FS will improve the world health system helping doctors during complicated surgical procedure and helping patients to recover faster and shortening hospitalization time, significantly reducing risk of post-surgical complications.
