Biomerix Corporation Announces FDA Clearance and Market Launch of REVIVE(TM) for Use in Soft Tissue Repair Procedures
Date:2/26/2009

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerix Corporation announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance to market REVIVE(TM). Constructed using the Biomerix Biomaterial(TM), REVIVE acts as a tissue scaffold facilitating rapid tissue ingrowth and can be utilized in a variety of soft tissue repair procedures, including the repair of inguinal hernias.

With more than 700,000 procedures per year, inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common surgeries in the U.S.(1) Hernia repair typically involves the use of a mesh to reinforce and support the surrounding tissue. REVIVE is designed to minimize the scarring response that results from implantation of a mesh, which studies have shown can lead to persistent groin pain in 30% of patients at one year(2). Clinical feedback has confirmed REVIVE offers excellent conformability to the defect and ease of handling.(3)

"Biomerix is poised for rapid growth over the course of the next few years. The company plans to launch numerous products across a range of therapeutic areas by capitalizing on its novel Biomerix Biomaterial platform technology. REVIVE is specifically designed to support tissue remodeling by enhancing the soft tissue wound healing process and thereby improves clinical outcomes," stated Kenneth G. Hayes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Biomerix Corporation.

The company has initiated a market launch of REVIVE in the U.S. through a small direct sales force and plans to expand the group over time as additional products are brought to market.
