Tricol Biomedical Receives NIH Phase IIB Grant to Continue Development of its Hemostatic Device for the Prostate

Tricol Biomedical, a privately held medical device company dedicated to saving lives through innovative, hemostatic, and wound care solutions, has received an $853,585 grant from the National Institute Of Diabetes And Digestive And Kidney Diseases of the National Institutes of Health’s Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program. The Phase IIB grant will support final development of Tricol’s proprietary hemostatic device to address bleeding in prostate-related procedures for treatment of both benign and malignant prostate conditions.

In the U.S. alone, more than 42 million men over the age 50 suffer from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), and roughly 12 million require medical attention and intervention for the condition, often through minimally-invasive surgical procedures.1 In addition, prostate cancer afflicts 250,000 men in the US each year,2 often requiring radical surgical intervention.

Nearly 250,000 surgical procedures for the prostate are performed in the U.S. annually3 to address both benign and malignant conditions, and for patients requiring intervention, post-operative bleeding remains a major complication, resulting in prolonged hospitalization and increased illness and mortality for patients, and increased overall cost of care.

Tricol’s development of an endoluminal hemostatic device, specifically to treat prostatic bleeding, could address a serious unmet need to provide effective bleeding control post-surgery, reduce related morbidity and mortality, and significantly decrease the overall cost of hospitalization.

“Tricol has a long history of developing and commercializing revolutionary hemostatic solutions that save lives,” commented Christopher Rowland, Tricol’s President and CEO.  “The potential for this new application to control bleeding in the surgical realm of prostate procedures could have a significant impact on the health of patients globally.”

For more than 20 years, Tricol has been a world leader in advanced acute wound care innovation and is dedicated to expanding technologies, platforms, and applications to improve and save lives around the globe. Through strong scientific background, a highly skilled team, and significant emphasis on research and development, Tricol has established itself as a global medical products company that continues to innovate its initial foundation of advanced hemostatic solutions. The company holds over 60 patents and 32 clinical publications, manufacturing life-saving hemostatic product families like HemCon® and OneStopTM.
