Smith & Nephew Introduces New Biologic to Speed Healing
Date:3/5/2008

New Biologic uses patient's own blood to assist in healing

MEMPHIS, Tenn. and SAN FRANCISCO, March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smith & Nephew, Inc.'s (NYSE: SNN, LSE: SN) Orthopaedic Trauma & Clinical Therapies business today announced the U.S. launch of the CAPTION(TM) Disposable Platelet Concentration System. The CAPTION system simplifies and expedites the collection of platelet rich concentrate (PRC) and eliminates cross- contamination risks.

The CAPTION system is used by the surgical staff to concentrate the platelets from a sample of the patient's blood. Platelets are round cell fragments in the blood that are responsible for initiation of the body's natural healing process. When the concentrated platelets are applied to the surgical site, they may help jump start the body's natural healing response.

The CAPTION system creates a PRC of up to four times the original level and takes 40% less time than standard centrifugation. Furthermore, the disposable CAPTION system arrives sterile and all materials are disposed after use, eliminating the risk of cross-contamination. The PRC made by the CAPTION system consists of platelet cells suspended in a proprietary solution.

"Until now the preparation of platelet rich concentrate has been burdensome for my surgical staff," says Dr. Steven Moran from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. "Fortunately, the new CAPTION system allows for the simple and rapid collection of platelet rich concentrate, without the hassle of a centrifuge."

The CAPTION system was developed by Smith & Nephew scientists and innovation teams based at the company's Research Center in York, UK, and at the Orthopaedic Trauma & Clinical Therapies Global Business Unit in Memphis, Tenn.
