As more companies like Neuralstem (NYSE: CUR), StemCells (NASDAQ: STEM) and Osiris Therapeutics (NASDAQ: OSIR) come online with products developed around biologic stem cell usage and natural occurring progenitor cells, the industries market fragmentation should begin to dissipate.

New comer Arch Therapeutics (OTCQB: ARTH), has recently unveiled its Hemostatic Agent; AC5™ to the world to rave reviews. AC5™ has seen dramatic improvement in hemostasis with animal testing. Hemostasis occurred over 30 times faster than control use of saline and 10 times faster than the use of cauterization. AC5™ stops bleeding promptly. Unlike many competitive products, it conforms to irregular wound geometry, allows for normal healing, and helps maintain a clear field of vision. Because it is not sticky or glue-like, it is ideal for use in the laparoscopic setting -- a challenge for much of the competition. Furthermore, it is transparent, enabling a surgeon to operate through it in order to prophylactically stop bleeding as it starts. Importantly, time to hemostasis for AC5™ is typically measured in seconds, rather than the many minutes of the much of the competition. In preclinical tests, AC5™ has been simple, effective, and versatile. For more information on Arch Therapeutics, please visit www.archtherapeutics.com.
