Two-day Tissue Adhesives / Soft Tissue Workshop / Symposium, September 26-27, 2011

Mon, 08/22/2011 - 12:30pm
U.S. Food & Drug Administration

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a Workshop to facilitate medical device innovation with the focus on tissue adhesive materials. In the last 20 years there has been an explosion in the number of biomaterials being used as adhesives. There is incredible variation in the indications, adhesion mechanisms and formulation of these adhesives. To date, such adhesives have only been approved for use on the skin and some other limited anatomic sites but are being proposed for use as an adhesive in many internal anatomic locations. Since the FDA first approved a single synthetic cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive for topical wound closure, in 1998, an extended family of chemical tissue adhesives has emerged. This new family is comprised of fibrin-based adhesives, synthetic and protein polymers, and cements –- all of which extend application beyond wound closure to indications such as hemostasis and bone bonding. Many of these emerging tissue adhesives could modify difficult surgical procedures by stabilizing tissue surfaces through hemostasis, sealing of wounds, and fixation of tissue in areas inaccessible to staples, clips, and suture placement.

The purpose of the workshop/symposium is to u nderstand these adhesives in terms of mechanism; toxicity and potential indications will guide innovation and help guide appropriate regulatory pathways to develop new tissue adhesive biomaterials that can be used clinically for external and/or internal applications. Discussions regarding the use of presently used and experimental tissue adhesive in animal studies and in recently reported clinical studies will provide insights into the design of future biodegradable or bioabsorbable tissue adhesives that may have potential to be used in humans for clinical applications. It is important to ensure existing products are used properly and new tissue adhesive biomaterials are developed properly for new intended uses and that new products can be efficiently developed more likely to result in safe products that benefit patients and consumers when implemented for clinical use.


This Two-day Tissue Adhesives/Soft Tissue Workshop/Symposium will be held on September 26 and September 27, 2011 beginning 8:00 a.m. at the FDA White Oak Campus, Building 2, A-2031, 10903 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland 20993.

The meeting will be available via webcast.
