Not only was this stock (CLSR) on Dateline tonight (per Yahoo board), I am watching the Stars/Leafs hockey game and the trainer from Dallas was being interviewed between periods and spoke of DERMABOND and how it will make their jobs a lot easier in patching up the hockey players during the game.

Full disclosure - I am not long or short - I used to be invested in Cryolife which I believe was trying to market a similar suture product in addition to their cryopreservation business. I believe it was called FibRx. Any updates would be appreciated.

It's been downgraded by some analyst which took the winds out of its sails. But there should be some upside for the next two quarters, as there are rumors that real sales have exceeded expectations. So as the numbers come in its should see a good bounce up. The big question is the sustainability of those numbers.

I got a hold of comments from Oppenheimer. says "our interpretation of the results is that the US and International launches of the company's flagship Dermabond cyanoacrylate topical wound closure glue product have been mediocre."
I did not see it on the tv show last night. Maybe we civil disturbances or earthquakes in California to create more people who need stiches and glue?

Hello, McFly! Like, hey, we just had a huge day! No news and no comments. Might have to buy more tomorrow.

I figure, with appearances on Dateline, ER, and the Stars/Leafs hockey game, we can't lose!

Every medical device that is on ER, or better yet...General Hospital - invest in those companies. It'll be a sure fire strategy.

I would like to get into this company. any advice? this is a 'safe' stock if the economy slows. oversupply may drown over the course of the summer, though with the heat wave, less activity may mean less injuries. stock's +/- $15.

Closure Medical Corporation Announces FDA Approval of Soothe-N-Seal(TM) Canker Sore Relief

RALEIGH, N.C., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- CLOSURE Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: CLSR - news), a medical tissue cohesive products company, today announced it has received FDA clearance to market its SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) Canker Sore Relief product.

''SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) is the first cyanoacrylate adhesive approved by the FDA for the over-the-counter consumer market. Based upon primary market research, we believe that there are about 40 million households within the U.S. alone in which one or more members have suffered from oral ulcers within the past 6 months,'' said Mr. Robert V. Toni, President and CEO of CLOSURE Medical Corporation.

The approval is based in part on the findings of a sponsored 155-patient multi-center clinical study conducted at Brigham & Women's Hospital, UNC-Chapel Hill, and the Forsyth Institute. In the multi-center study, SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) Canker Sore Relief was found to provide relief of pain associated with oral ulcers. In addition, SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) provided a protective barrier that reduced the pain associated with irritation from eating and drinking.

CLOSURE Medical Corporation is currently in discussions for a marketing distribution agreement for SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) Canker Sore Relief. CLOSURE believes SOOTHE-N-SEAL(TM) is the first of a number of OTC consumer products utilizing its proprietary cyanoacrylate technology.

CLOSURE Medical Corporation, headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, develops, manufactures and commercializes medical tissue cohesive products based on its proprietary cyanoacrylate technology. CLOSURE's nonabsorbable tissue cohesive products may be used to replace sutures and staples for certain topical wound closure applications, while its absorbable tissue cohesive products can potentially be used as tissue cohesives for internal wound closure and management. Currently marketed nonabsorbable tissue cohesive products include DERMABOND* Topical Skin Adhesive, which is used to replace sutures and staples for closure of certain lacerations and incisions, OCTYLDENT® cohesive, which is used as an adjunct in the treatment of adult periodontal disease; and NEXABAND® topical cohesives, a family of products used in veterinary wound closure and management.

DERMABOND is a trademark of Ethicon, Inc.; SOOTHE-N-SEAL, OCTYLDENT and NEXABAND are all trademarks of CLOSURE Medical Corporation.
