Innocoll, Inc. Files 510 (k) Application for CollaRx Lidocaine Sponge
Date:3/31/2009

ASHBURN, Va., March 31 /PRNewswire/ --- Innocoll, Inc. announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Innocoll Pharmaceuticals, has filed a US 510k application for its CollaRx(TM) Lidocaine Sponge for the management of painful wounds.

It is estimated that each year 13 million patients worldwide suffer from chronic wounds (venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, etc.) 35 percent of all chronic wounds do not heal within 5 years. Patients suffering from wound pain have been difficult to assess and have been regularly undertreated. However, it is estimated that 6 out of every 10 chronic wound patients suffer from pain associated with their wounds, and if left untreated, this pain can lead to depression, loss of appetite, and immobility, all of which have a further negative impact on the rate of healing of the wound.

The CollaRx Lidocaine Sponge is a lyophilized collagen sponge containing purified type-I collagen protein and lidocaine, a locally acting anesthetic. The product is intended to be used for the management of painful wounds including: diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, ulcers caused by mixed vascular etiologies, full-thickness & partial thickness wounds, abrasions, traumatic wounds, 1st and 2nd degree burns and dehisced surgical wounds.

Dr. Michael Myers, President and CEO commented, "I am very pleased about the progress that we have made with the CollaRx Lidocaine Sponge. This marks our third medical device filing in the US, and demonstrates the versatility of our collagen based drug delivery technology."
