Alltracel Pharmaceuticals (Dublin, Ireland) has announced the US launch of its new Seal?ON line of consumer first aid products. These products stop bleeding fast with the patented, clinically proven hemostatic agent m?doc (micro-dispersed oxidized cellulose). M?doc is a natural powdered hemostatic substance derived from pure cotton that helps stop bleeding from minor wounds, scrapes, and nosebleeds. It is pH-balanced, biocompatible, and hypoallergenic, so it will not irritate skin or cause an allergic reaction when applied to an open wound. Seal?ON is the first US first aid brand to feature m?doc. Seal?ON products include a spray, nasal sponges, and bandages. For more information, visit www.seal-on.com.
