WHY OR WHAT IS ARC MEDICAL DEVICES INC.?
ARC is developing and commercializing novel, first-in-class solutions to prevent post-surgical adhesions – which if not prevented cause pain & suffering, organ dysfunction, infertility, and death; and for which there is a dire unmet medical need.
Our products are non-viscous, liquid, polysaccharide-based medical devices. Our preclinical data in numerous surgical adhesion models show that our product flows throughout the entire surgical site and reduces the formation of surgical adhesions throughout the entire surgical site. We’ve recently built a manufacturing facility & quality control laboratory; and are implementing our quality management system now (IOS 13485). We will initiate first-in-human and follow-on clinical trials in the near-term.
