HAE:TSX

MONTREAL, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Haemacure Corporation (TSX : HAE), a Montreal-based specialty bio-therapeutics company developing high-value human plasma-derived protein products for commercialization, disclosed today the positive results of a second preclinical study conducted on the use of its proprietary lead product candidate, the human fibrin sealant Hemaseel(R)HMN, in preventing the formation of post-surgical adhesions in a bleeding surgical model.

The study compared Haemacure's fibrin sealant to untreated controls, and to two major FDA-approved adhesion prevention products: Interceed(TM) Absorbable Adhesion Barrier (Ethicon) and Seprafilm(R) Adhesion Barrier (Genzyme). Use of Haemacure's fibrin sealant in the presence of blood resulted in a statistically significant reduction in the incidence, extent and severity of adhesions, as compared to the untreated control group. Haemacure's fibrin sealant also was statistically significantly more effective than both Interceed and Seprafilm. For example, the extent of adhesions in both the untreated and Seprafilm groups was three times (54.2%) that in the Haemacure's fibrin sealant group (18%). It was even higher, four times, in the Interceed group (71.7%). Liquid fibrin sealants, such as Haemacure's, are much easier to apply to treatment sites than adhesion barriers such as Interceed. They also lend themselves to laparoscopic application much better than these types of barriers.

This second study, conducted in July 2008, confirms and extends previous pre-clinical results demonstrating the effectiveness of Haemacure's fibrin sealant in adhesion prevention, using its current haemostasis formulation. The previous study, conducted in April 2008, also demonstrated that the use of Haemacure's fibrin sealant resulted in a statistically significant reduction in the incidence, extent and severity of adhesions, as compared to untreated controls. Both studies were designed to evalu
