United Health Products Announces Completion of Pathology and Study of Preclinical Bone Application of HemoStyp®

HENDERSON, Nev., Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United Health Products, Inc. (OTC: UEEC), ("UHP" or the "Company"), manufacturer and marketer of HemoStyp, a patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors, today announced that it had received the pathology results of a preclinical animal study to assess the effect of HemoStyp on the bone. The company conducted the animal study to evaluate the suitability of HemoStyp in contact with bone in the chronic swine model, and to validate HemoStyp for this application. This study and indication is independent of the current PMA application and will potentially allow UHP acess to a new and significant market opportunity.

The study results determined that there was no adverse pH effect on the bone and surrounding tissue. UHP believes that these preliminary results demonstrate the safe application of HemoStyp in orthopedic procedures. These results need to be confirmed by human clinical trial in order to confirm safety and efficacy prior to obtaining FDA approval.  The study was completed by Dr. Clay Robinson, DVM at Mt. Sterling Bio Medical in Willard Bay, Utah and pathology performed by Dr. Tom Baldwin at the Utah State University Diagnostic Laboratory.

The study was undertaken as a precursor to a human trial because products similar to HemoStyp, due to their low pH, are caustic to bone tissue and are therefore unsuitable for bone-related surgeries, whereas HemoStyp maintains a balanced pH environment. Today there exists an unmet need for safe and effective hemostatic agents in bone related surgeries. This need is expected to increase substantially in the coming years: the American Society of Orthopedic Surgeons estimated that by 2030 635,000 Total Hip Replacements and 1,280,000 Total Knee Replacements, respectively will be performed annually.

Dr. Gerard Abate, Chief Medical Officer, UHP commented, "HemoStyp is easy to apply, dissolves completely within 24 hours; and, will be an effective adjunct to stop cancellous bone bleeding while not interfering with the healing process. This data supports our development plan as we move forward with additional human trials to seek other surgical indications."

United Health Products Issues Shareholder Update

HENDERSON, Nev., July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United Health Products, Inc. (UEEC), (“UHP” or the “Company”), manufacturer and marketer of HemoStyp®, a patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors, today announced updates on:

Human Clinical Trial

HemoStyp is under study in the surgical setting, with the intent to seek a pre-market approval (PMA) as a Class III, 510K device from the FDA. It expects to complete enrollment and all surgical procedures for its human clinical trial on or around mid-July 2019. Completion of the trial, which includes post-operative follow ups, is expected to occur approximately one month later.

International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium (IVECCS)

David W. Ramey DVM has prepared a presentation —How to Use a Hemostatic Gauze Product to Help Control Bleeding in Clinical Settings in the Horse— which will be published in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. In addition, Dr. Ramey will deliver an oral presentation of the same title  at the 25th IVECCS on September 7th, 2019 in Washington, D.C. Dr. Ramey is a member of UHP’s Medical Advisory Board.

Bone Hemostatic Gauze Testing

UHP is performing a preclinical study to assess the effect of HemoStyp’s effects on bone. More specifically, the company is conducting an animal study to evaluate the suitability of a hemostatic gauze material in contact with bone in the chronic swine model, and to validate this material and technique in the developmental process. This study should take approximately one month to complete.

The study is being done as possible precursor to a human trial because products similar to HemoStyp, due to their low pH, are caustic to bone tissue, whereas HemoStyp maintains a balanced pH environment. According to the National Inpatient Sample, in 2014 there were 370,770 Total Hip Replacements (THR) and 680,150 Total Knee Replacements (TKR). Further, The American Society of Orthopedic Surgeons estimated that 635,000 THRs and 1,280,000 TKRs, respectively will be performed annually by 2030.

Additionally, UHP is currently investigating areas of future study in laparoscopic surgery, where the 12 most common procedures represent 3,500,000 surgeries annually in the U.S. alone.

United Health Products Announces 2018 Results

Henderson, Nevada – April 2, 2019  United Health Products, Inc. (OTCQB: UEEC), manufacturer and marketer of HemoStyp, a patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors, today filed its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. The 10-K may be viewed on EDGAR on the Securities and Exchange Commission website at: https://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html.

Douglas K. Beplate, President and CEO said, "2018 was the most important year to date in our company's development: we shifted our corporate focus to achieving FDA Class III approval for our products in human surgical applications.  We believe that gaining access to this $3.4 billion segment of the hemostatic gauze market is the best path to creating value for our shareholders and so we have devoted our resources fully to that objective. In parallel with this effort we are working closely with our financial advisory, Société Générale, to conduct a review of strategic alternatives, including the possible sale of the company, to maximize shareholder value."

Operational highlights:   

  • In February 2018, the Company completed and submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") all materials relevant for the pre-market approval ("PMA") for HemoStyp under the FDA's new and innovative CtQ Pilot-Program as a Class III application for internal surgical procedures. The CtQ Pilot Program was created to identify products that have a chemical makeup of demonstrated safe interaction with the body - as evidenced by years of prior product usage and studies - to be approved for Class III internal surgical use. The FDA reviewed UHP's HemoStyp as one of the participants for the program.  

  • The Company's 2" x 4" Trauma Gauze™ product was selected as the feature component for a new Advanced Wound Care Kit for Dick's Sporting Goods. With today's environment, when the unexpected can happen anywhere, both in the wild and in urban areas, having an advanced trauma kit can be the difference between survival and tragedy. The HemoStyp pouches have been included under the Field and Stream label and have been available in their stores nationwide since February 2018.   

  • In January 2018, the Company's distribution partner, Quantum Health Group, filed an application for Class III use in general internal surgical procedures with the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety ("MFDS") in South Korea. The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety provides the vision of "Safe Food and Drug, Healthy People, Well-being Society," and making extensive efforts to safeguard consumers and promote the public health by ensuring the safety of all foods, drugs, cosmetics, herbal medicines, and medical devices. Quantum received a response requiring additional data and testing.  The Company intends to respond to the request and complete its application following the expected FDA Class III approval.

  • In March 2018, the Company obtained Class III and CE mark approval for HemoStyp in the European Economic Area (EEA). The EEA comprises the 28 European Union members and certain other countries.  Accordingly, HemoStyp was approved for use in internal surgical procedures in more than 30 countries. This approval expired in August 2018, and a new application will be prepared in conjunction with the new CE standards for Class III following the expected FDA Class III approval. The EEA approval was granted following the provision of all required documentation to the relevant regulatory agencies. The CE marking- CE is an acronym for the French term "Conformité Européenne"- certifies that a product has met EEA health, safety, and environmental requirements, which ensure consumer safe. Manufacturers in the EEA and abroad must meet CE marking requirements where applicable to market their products in Europe. A manufacturer who has gone through the conformity assessment process may affix the CE mark to its product. With the CE marking, the product may be marketed throughout the EEA and certain other countries with a population of exceeding 517 million and a GDP exceeding $17 trillion.   

  • In July 2018, the Company announced that it had been accepted as a Walmart.com supplier, and would offer two HemoStyp wound care products for online retail sale, Hemostrips® Hemostatic Bandages and Boo-boo Strip Hemostatic Bandages.   

  • On August 8, 2018, the Company announced that its protocol submission for human testing has been reviewed by the FDA in furtherance of its efforts to achieve Class III approval for the product in the U.S. This FDA review has been provided to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for protocol and hospital site approval. UHP started the human trial study in November. The IRB is a committee that is independent of the FDA, and that is formally designated to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving humans. The purpose of the IRB is to assure that appropriate steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of humans participating as subjects in a research study. The Company's human trial protocol calls for the application of HemoStyp in abdominal, cardiovascular thoracic and vascular surgical procedures to control bleeding sites. Prior to finalizing its human trial protocol, UHP submitted a Q-Sub - a request for FDA review — to the FDA, in conjunction with its previously filed Class III PMA submission application.

  • The IRB approved HemoStyp human trial is a prospective, non-inferiority, multi-center, randomized, open-label trial to observe HemoStyp in the management of bleeding during surgery; and, to assess the efficacy and safety of HemoStyp as an adjunct for management of secondary hemostasis in an operative setting. Our independently developed protocol has established endpoints for bleeding control.
    We expect that the human trials will be the final step in obtaining FDA PMA Class III approval for HemoStyp. We have recruited a team of leading surgeons to conduct the study, and our lead investigator has successfully conducted over 20 medical device studies in the past. We aim to complete this final regulatory stage as part of our strategy to supply the domestic and international hemostasis surgical markets.

  • On October 25, 2018, the Company announced that, in connection with the FDA PMA Class III approval process for HemoStyp, UHP has been contacted by several medical technology companies that are active in the surgical equipment and hemostatic products sectors, and who expressed an interest in the Company's products and business strategy. In response to these inbound contacts, and to maximize shareholder value, the Company's board of directors has determined to conduct a review of strategic alternatives, which include a potential sale of the Company, joint venture or other commercial partnership, or a standalone growth plan. To assist in this review, the Company has retained Société Générale to serve as financial advisor to the Company, and it has retained the law firm of Ruskin Moscou Faltischek PC to assist in the strategic review. There can be no assurances that any specific transaction will occur as a result of the retention of these firms. .

The trial will operate under the Non-Significant Risk (NSR) category of Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). NSR devices do not pose a significant risk to the human subjects. Submissions for NSR device investigations are made directly to the IRB of each participating institution.   

“We expect that this human trial will be the last step to clear in obtaining FDA PMA Class III approval for HemoStyp, “said, Louis Schiliro, COO, UHP. “We have recruited a team of leading surgeons to conduct the study, and our lead investigator has successfully conducted over 20 FDA trials as Primary Investigator. These are indeed exciting times for UHP, as we aim to complete the final regulatory stage and prepare for entry into the $ 2.9 billion domestic hemostasis surgical market.”

FDA Selects HemoStyp® for CtQ Pilot Program

Henderson, Nevada – December 04, 2017 – United Health Products, Inc. (OTCQB: UEEC) manufacturer and marketer of HemoStyp®,  a patented hemostatic gauze for the healthcare and wound care sectors, today announced that it is proceeding with its application for HemoStyp under the  FDA’s new and innovative CtQ Pilot Program. The FDA selected UHP’s HemoStyp as only one of nine participants for the program. UHP management has scheduled its first face-to-face meeting with FDA experts for January 17, 2018 to provide the agency with whatever information it needs to advance the application for premarket approval (PMA).

The FDA has stated that it intends to work collaboratively with pilot program participants during the review of their PMA submission to define characteristics of the device that are critical to product quality, and how these characteristics are controlled in design and manufacturing prior to the post market inspection. For pilot program participants, the FDA would forego conducting the standard PMA preapproval inspection, and a post market inspection focusing on the PMA applicant’s implementation of the critical to quality characteristics would be conducted instead.

The CtQ Pilot Program was created to identify products that have a chemical makeup of demonstrated safe interaction with the body –as evidenced by years of prior product usage and studies-- to be approved for Class III internal surgical use. The program’s intent is to allow products that have demonstrated repeated safe interaction to enter the market in a more efficient manner.  This application will run simultaneously with the company’s prior Class II application for expanded indication. The market for 2017 internal surgical market for hemostatic products is estimated at in excess of seven billion dollars, and is expected to grow at 7.1% over the next few years, to reach more than $8.3 billion by 2022. (http://industryarc.com/Report/15189/hemostats-market.html

Concurrent with its CtQ Pilot Program participation, UHP reaffirms that its current Class II application  – Expanded Indication submission with the US FDA-- continues to progress, and is in an advanced stage of review 

About Premarket Approval Application Critical to Quality (PMA CtQ) Pilot Program 
Top-quality medical devices help the FDA better protect and promote public health. And one of the top priorities for FDA’s medical devices center is a focus on quality.

More specifically, the FDA is working with stakeholders—industry, health care providers, patients, payers, and investors—to build a strong Case for Quality.

This program allows the FDA to identify device manufacturers that consistently produce high-quality devices. By doing so, we can better focus our resources helping other manufacturers raise their level of quality. This program also helps the FDA identify and promote practices that support consistent quality manufacturing, and align our regulatory, enforcement, compliance approaches with those practices.

The FDA launched the Case for Quality in 2011 following an in-depth review of device quality data and feedback from both FDA and industry stakeholders. The FDA's analysis flagged certain widespread or common manufacturing risks that impact product quality. The review also showed manufacturers that focus on and manage those risks often become more productive, receiving fewer complaints, needing to open fewer CAPAs and investigations, and having lower quality-related product costs than their competitors. In simple terms, the review identified that an investment in quality has long-term payoffs.
