Repel cuts adhesions in rabbits
This article was originally published in Clinica
Life Medical Science's bioresorbable anti-adhesion barrier, Repel, cut adhesions by almost 50% in a recently completed animal study. The polymer film prevented adhesions in 100% of animals in a previous comparison with J&J's Intersheet (see Clinica No 710, p 18). In the most recent study, 24 rabbits were subjected to provocative injuries in order to create lesions. The lesions were excised in a second procedure and the wound site was treated with Repel in half of the animals.
