I am a shareholder of Tri-Point Medical Corp (TPMC). This company recently (9/96) went IPO at $8/sh w/12.1M ost. As of 11/27/96 the stock is trading at 10 1/4. This company is attempting to develop a medical-grade adhesive to use as substitute for sutures and staples. Its current core product at this time (TraumaSeal) recently completed clinical trials, and filing for PMA to the FDA is planned at 1Q97. The company has signed strategic partnership with Ethicon (a division of J & J) and is the world leader of surgical closure market. The product is based on cyanoacrylate technology (same as Super Glue) and, IMHO, this product is significantly superior to that of bandage, sutures and staples. Analyst report projects the stock to be at $11 within the short-term and $35 for the long-term. This is not an endorsement to buy or sell. It is provided for information purpose. Let keep an eye on this company.
