ARC is developing and commercializing novel, first-in-class products to prevent post-surgical adhesions – which if not prevented cause pain & suffering, organ dysfunction, infertility, and death; and for which there is a dire, large unmet medical need. Our products are non-viscous, liquid medical devices. ARC’s preclinical data in numerous surgical adhesion models show that our product flows throughout the entire surgical site and prevents or reduces the formation of surgical adhesions throughout the entire surgical site. We are currently manufacturing ISO 13485 & GMP batches for use in human clinical trials.

Mission: We are doing something super-important that no one else is going to get done: using our novel, liquid medical device we are preventing or reducing the formation of surgical adhesions throughout the entire surgical site.
People: We have a superstar team that is passionate about improving their own & others’ health and is fun to work with (also a bit goofy).
