Department of Defense Awards CryoLife $1.7 million to Develop BioFoam Hemostatic Technology
Date:4/6/2009

ATLANTA, April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoLife, Inc., (NYSE: CRY) an implantable biological medical device and tissue processing company, today announced it has been awarded approximately $1.7 million under the Department of Defense (DoD) Appropriations Bill to continue further development of CryoLife's protein hydrogel technology. Preclinical studies of CryoLife's BioFoam(R) Surgical Matrix, a protein hydrogel product under development for organ sealing, are nearing completion. This grant will help fund upcoming clinical studies of BioFoam in the United States.

In December 2008, CryoLife received conditional approval from the FDA to conduct the feasibility phase of the Company's BioFoam IDE submission for liver parenchyma sealing. Before beginning the feasibility study, the Company must receive final approval of the study protocol and related documents from the FDA and an additional approval of the same from the U.S. Department of Defense. The Company is in the final review process with the Department of Defense. The Company also filed a CE Mark submission with its Notified Body in December 2008 for BioFoam's use as an adjunct in the sealing of abdominal parenchymal tissues (liver and spleen) when cessation of bleeding by ligature or other conventional methods is ineffective or impractical. The Company also continues to conduct preclinical research with BioFoam for use in wound sealing in trauma surgery.

"Over the past four fiscal years the DoD has allocated a total of approximately $5.4 million to CryoLife for the development of protein hydrogel products," said Steven G. Anderson, CryoLife president and chief executive officer. "We are excited about advancing this product through the clinical process."
