ROCKVILLE, Md., July 7 /PRNewswire/ — For the third
consecutive year the Department of Defense demonstrated its
commitment to help save the lives of our troops by providing STB Lifesaving
Technologies® with $2.85
million of funding.
The award is to further advance the development of STB®’s Fibrin
Adhesive STat (FAST®) dressing, designed to be effective
against the full spectrum of blood loss, including severe arterial
and venous bleeding. Fifty percent or more combat-related
deaths are attributable to uncontrolled hemorrhaging, and with
products such as this, thousands of military and civilian lives
could be saved.
“We are most appreciative of the support we have continued to
receive from the Department of Defense and members of both the
Senate and House. This funding is not only invaluable; it
serves as a strong statement of their belief in our Fibrin
Adhesive STat (FAST®) dressing and their commitment to help
us bring our products to the battlefield, emergency responders and
operating rooms,” said STB® CEO, Richard Moscarello.
