Date:7/30/2009

ISELIN, N.J., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SyntheMed, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SYMD), a biomaterials company engaged in the development and commercialization of anti-adhesion products, announced today that it has been awarded US Patent #7,569,643 pertaining to its bioresorbable reverse thermal gelation polymer technology. This represents the latest in a series of patents covering this novel technology and pertains to the application of these materials in the reduction of post-operative adhesion formation. Dr. Eli Pines, the Company's Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer stated, "The novelty of these materials is that they can be delivered to difficult to access sites in the body as a liquid through a syringe or as a spray and, once exposed to body temperature, rapidly transition to a resorbable, adherent, high viscosity gel. Thus, they are ideally suited as anti-adhesion materials in spine and tendon surgery."
