The innovative surgical patch, TachoSil is poised to be the future of the European tissue sealants and topical hemostats markets.

At present, Nycomed, with TachoSil, is the sole company in the market with a ready-to-use dual action patch. TachoSil is unique: it does not fit into any of the standard market segments and constitutes a separate category on its own.

"This pioneering product has both haemostatic and sealing properties and can be used to stop bleeding as well seal tissue," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Divya Belle. "TachoSil combines the bioactive mechanism of action of human coagulation factors fibrinogen and thrombin with a collagen patch for mechanical support.

TachoSil effectively fulfills the market need for an easy-to-use product with ready-to-use features. TachoSil is safely absorbed by the body within weeks after application. It can be stored at room temperature and is available in three different sized patches which require no preparation before surgical use. Additionally, it minimizes the risk of post-operative re-bleedings, reducing hospital stays and the need for re-operations.

Moreover, due to its strong hemostatic and sealing properties, TachoSil meets the need for products that are able to control bleeding and seal tissue during surgeries. Such multiple attributes have underlined the competitive edge enjoyed by TachoSil.

Most fibrin sealants or hemostats available in the market today are bovine-based. These products have attendant safety concerns related to the bovine protein-Aprotinin or bovine thrombin which carries the risk of allergic reactions, autoimmune syndromes and transfer of diseases.

"With TachoSil, Nycomed has eliminated Aprotinin, offering a product that is free of bovine components," states Belle. "Accordingly, there is no risk of transmittance of bovine diseases since it contains only the coagulation factors - human fibrinogen and human thrombin."

TachoSil has been registering high growth rates of over 20 per cent. Testifying to its efficacy and potential for continued success is the recent agreement entered into by Nycomed with Baxter International, with the latter set to market and distribute the TachoSil patch in the United States, after approval.

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Differentiation Innovation is presented to the company that has best demonstrated the ability to develop and/or advance products with more innovative capabilities than competing vendors and products.
