Skin graft fixation for burn victims using fibrin sealant represents

multi-million dollar market opportunity for Company

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.

"We are very excited with the results of this preclinical study, which suggest that Haemacure's fibrin sealant technology may provide a safe and effective alternative to staples and sutures and reduce discomfort of burn patients receiving skin grafts" said Joseph Galli, Chairman and CEO of Haemacure. "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 results of this preclinical study strongly suggest that the use of Haemacure's fibrin sealant, with a reduced thrombin concentration, may provide advantages over staples and sutures, the current standard of care, when used to secure skin grafts to recipient wound sites. 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.

The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of tissue fixation, rather than hemostasis. As a result, the thrombin concentration of the fibrin sealant was reduced to provide additional time for the manipulation and positioning of the skin g
