EXTON, Pa., Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kensey Nash Corporation (Nasdaq: KNSY) today announced that it received a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The NIH has awarded Kensey Nash Corporation a two-year, $1.9 million Phase II SBIR grant to further investigate the use of a bioadhesive surgical mesh for applications in tendon repair procedures.  The Company will develop and evaluate the ability of its proprietary bioadhesive technology to augment standard sutured tendon repair.

This grant will allow us to explore new applications for our recently acquired adhesive technology in combination with our other extracellular matrix, collagen, and polymer based biomaterials to develop new solutions for existing medical problems," commented Doug Evans, Chief Operating Officer.
