Ethicon Inc announces submission of BLA for Fibrin Pad

Ethicon Inc, a Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) company, reported on Thursday the submission of a Biologic License Application (BLA) to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Fibrin Pad to aid in stopping soft tissue bleeding during surgery.
The company's BLA submission includes efficacy and safety data from a randomised, controlled clinical study in which the Fibrin Pad was used as an adjunct to hemostasis in soft tissue bleeding. According to Ethicon the Fibrin Pad is a novel product candidate that combines two methods of action: biomaterials and plasma-derived biologics (Human Fibrinogen and Human Thrombin).The Fibrin Pad is intended for use by surgeons as an adjunct to hemostasis when surgical methods are ineffective or impractical to control bleeding.
