FzioMed has begun a US clinical trial of its anti-adhesion product for use in spinal surgery. Oxiplex/SP is a bioresorbable material that is applied within the surgical site during lumbar surgery to reduce post-surgical adhesions. "There is a great unmet need for an effective anti-adhesion product in spine surgery," claims Ronald Haynes, FzioMed's president and CEO. Over 400,000 patients undergo lumbar surgery in the US annually, the San Luis Obispo, California company added.
