Invention to prevent surgical adhesions wins Kaye Award
Date:6/12/2008

represented by Prof. Cohn's invention lies in the development of a new family of biodegradable copolymers, which are combinations of two different monomers (low molecular weight molecules). These copolymers combine two types of segments, each of them rendering the polymers with specific properties. This multicomponent approach permits the variance of various parameters of the materials -- adjusting their basic chemistry, composition and molecular weight -- to comply with the clinical requirements of each specific surgical application.

Prof. Cohn's invention of novel tailor-made biodegradable polymers for the prevention of post-surgical adhesions is patented by Yissum, the Technology Transfer Company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. SyntheMed Inc. licensed the technology from Yissum and is awaiting an FDA marketing approval for the first product, REPEL-CV Adhesion Barrier, for use in pediatric patients (21 and younger) who are likely to need secondary open heart surgery. REPEL-CV has European CE Mark approval for use in all cardiac surgery patients and is currently marketed in most European Union countries.
