Date:10/25/2010

SINGAPORE, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Singapore company Novus Scientific Pte. Ltd today announced that the National University Hospital (NUH), Singapore has operated on the first patient in its groundbreaking study: Abdominal Wall Closure After Lipectomy, TRAM/DIEP Flap - Comparison of TIGR® Matrix (100% Resorbable) vs Polypropylene (Permanent) Mesh.This randomized study, involving 86 patients, received DSRB approval on 9th September 2010.

TIGR® Matrix Surgical Mesh was launched for sale in the U.S. in June 2010.
