HENDERSON, Nev. — June 19, 2018 — United Health Products Inc. (UHP), manufacturer and marketer of HemoStyp, a patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors, today announced that after successfully completing a series of animal tests, it has filed an IDE pre-submission application with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin human trials of HemoStyp. The filing was made in conjunction with a previously filed Class III PMA submission application for HemoStyp for general surgical use in abdominal, cardiovascular and thoracic procedures to control bleeding sites.
An Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) allows an investigational device (i.e., a device that is the subject of a clinical study) to be used in order to collect safety and effectiveness data required to support a premarket approval (PMA). All statistical power calculations have been completed, and procedural protocols have been vetted for this submission. UHP expects to confer imminently with the FDA to confirm receipt of the Protocol, and to begin testing upon approval.
United Health Products develops, manufactures, and markets patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors. The product, HemoStyp, is derived from regenerated oxidized cellulose, which is all natural, and designed to absorb exudate/drainage from superficial wounds and helps control bleeding. UHP is focused on identifying new markets and applications for its products, and expanding its current markets.
