Henderson, NV - January 20, 2015 - United Health Products, Inc. (OTCQB: UEEC) announced that it has received formal results of recent tests performed at Spring Valley Laboratories, a GLP compliant CRO laboratory. These tests were performed on pigs that had their femoral arteries exposed. A 5 millimeter puncture wound was established and the arterial tissue removed, creating a hole in the femoral artery. The arterial bleeding was allowed for a 45 second interval prior to any HemoStyp® gauze being applied under constant pressure. Fluid was administered to the pig through a catheter placed in the neck to replace any blood loss through the wound site. The administered fluids consisting of .9 % sterile crystalloid fluids further diluted the blood and created extreme pressure at the wound site.
The test on the non-control pigs began with examining how much material was best administrated to control arterial bleeding. The first two subjects showed that HemoStyp® was far more effective when using less material than first assumed. Once the effective amount was determined, two subjects achieved successful hemostasis in an average time of 36 minutes. In accordance with test protocol, the subjects were monitored for up to 180 minutes to substantiate baseline vitals were achieved and maintained. The next closest competitive product tested in a similar manner demonstrated an average time of hemostasis in 63 minutes.
Douglas Beplate, CEO of United Health Products, commented, "We feel these results are remarkable because we were repeatedly, demonstrating and achieving complete hemostasis in a significantly faster time than products that were previously tested. More importantly, we were able to achieve this milestone with an all-natural, absorbable product. Management intends to incorporate these findings to further improve usage protocols and promote our products for their demonstrated superior benefits."
