Interface Biologics' Anti-Thrombic Additives Show Equivalent Efficacy to Commercial Heparinized Coatings
Date:9/16/2008

TORONTO, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ - In a head to head comparison of Interface Biologics Inc. (IBI) Endexo Anti-thrombic additives versus commercially available heparin coated catheters, both products achieved significant reductions (88%) in thrombus versus the polyurethane (Carbothane(TM)) control (data on file).

"Due to the recent contamination, subsequent price increases, and safety issues for Heparin, catheter manufacturers are seeking alternative coatings for their products. Interface Biologics' Endexo(TM) anti-thrombic additives are non-drug polymers that have anti platelet properties. These polymers are compatible with a wide range of base polymers, and since they are an additive rather than a coating, afford ease of process manufacturing as well as provide both extra and intraluminal coverage, and are equivalent in thrombus reduction performance to commercially available coatings," stated Rich Sullivan, President and CEO of Interface Biologics.

The blood loop study was performed at the Medical Device Evaluation Center (MDEC) in Salt Lake City Utah. "Catheters with effective Endexo additives showed a significant reduction in thrombus versus a standard polyurethane control, and were not statistically different in antithrombotic efficacy versus a commercially available heparin coated catheter," stated Sivaprasad Sukavaneshvar, Ph.D., VP of MDEC.
