MONTREAL, Dec. 9 /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 preclinical study conducted on the use of its proprietary lead product candidate, the human fibrin sealant Hemaseel(R)HMN, in skin graft fixation for burn victims.

"Skin graft fixation is the second new potential product indication based on the formulation of our lead hemostasis product candidate. This demonstrates again our commitment to leveraging our technology platform to meet major medical needs and position Haemacure as the only global, independent fibrin sealant-centric company", concluded Mr. Galli.

The use of staples or sutures in skin graft fixation for burn patients can often lead to post-operative complications such as wound infection, and create anxiety over pain during removal.
