FDA approves U.S. trial for Cohera Medical’s Sylys surgical sealant
Cohera Medical said this week that the FDA granted investigational device exemption for a clinical trial of its Sylys surgical sealant. Raleigh, N.C.-based Cohera said the Sylys sealant, which won expedited access pathway status back in June 2015, is designed to be an adjunct to standard closure techniques in intestinal anastomosis procedures.

The trial is slated to compare colorectal and ileorectal anastomosis after resection with and without Sylys, Cohera said. “We are pleased that the FDA has approved this IDE.

Cohera Medical raised a $50 million funding round led by private equity giant KKR and joined by a group of existing investors.

How I Turned My Breast Cancer Into A Positive Way To Help Others
Call it clairvoyance or pure coincidence, but from the age of 15, I was confident I would face at least two extreme traumas in my life; my mother would die tragically and I, at some point, would be diagnosed with breast cancer. During my teen years, sometimes I would wake up in hysterics that my mom perished in a car crash, only until I realized it was a dream. In my early 30s, and two weeks after getting married, I did lose my mother in a car accident. She was ejected from her vehicle and pronounced dead on scene. Though I always felt this would happen, one can never prepare for such a traumatic incident. I had no control over the accident, her death, or my emotions from the loss.
