Baxter Q3 - Edited

.... in our regenerative medicine business, we initiated a Phase III study evaluating the use of ARTISS in facial surgery in the United States. This is the second of three pivotal studies required by the FDA to obtain a broad adherence label.
As you know, ARTISS is the first and only slow-setting fibrin sealant indicated for use in adhering skin grafts in adult and pediatric burn patients. And is the newest agent in our expanding biosurgery portfolio.
...Sales in regenerative medicine, which includes our BioSurgery products, totaled $109 million and increased 5%. Sales excluding foreign currency grew 10% reflecting robust growth for FLOSEAL. And finally revenues in the other category, totaled $81 million versus $89 million last year.
