Collaboration Between HemCon and OHSU is Awarded NIH Grant for the Development of a Transurethral Hemostatic Device
Center Scientist Dr. Hua Xie will serve as the Co-Primary Investigator in the newly announced collaborative study with Portland-based HemCon Medical Technologies, Inc. (HemCon) to develop a novel chitosan endoluminal hemostatic device to control and prevent prostatic bleeding during prostatic surgery such as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). The device will enable rapid control of bleeding, reduce discomfort associated with extended catheterization, and more significantly enable reduction in hospital stays and expenditure. The OHSU Center for Regenerative Medicine will receive funding as a subcontractor on the NIH Grant. The official announcement can be found here
