510(k) Premarket notifications to market sutures in the US


Winsford, UK, 4 November 2015 – Advanced Medical Solutions Group plc (AIM: AMS.L), the surgical and advanced woundcare specialist company, today announces that it has received notice of further  Premarket 510(k) approvals, successfully adding to its first US suture approval from early 2015, thereby covering the vast majority of the rest of the suture product portfolio. With only one more suture type still awaiting US market approval, the Group is now well positioned to launch a comprehensive range of sutures into the US in mid 2016 through a combination of its branded and unbranded routes to market.

Chris Meredith, Chief Executive Officer of Advanced Medical Solutions, said: “We are pleased that we are now in a position to access the US surgical suture market which is estimated to be in excess of $1billion in size and dominated by a few major brands. This continues our strategy of extending our portfolio into new markets and gaining US approval for the RESORBA® product range has been a strategic target of the Group since we acquired the business late 2011. The most recent approvals provide a new, significant opportunity for the Group.”
