Surgical Glue Receives FDA Approval


WASHINGTON, DC--The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Dermabond--a glue specifically designed to seal surgical cuts without stitches. The glue reportedly keeps out bacteria as well.

Distributed by Ethicon Products, a division of Johnson & Johnson, the glue reportedly keeps dangerous pathogens, such as staphylococcus, pseudomonas, and enterococci, out of open wounds.

The glue is made by Closure Medical, based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
