Novel anti-adhesive barrier Biobarrier reduces growth of colon cancer cells.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Postoperative peritoneal carcinomatosis together with adhesion formation are considered as two major clinical complications after resection of malignant abdominal tumors, jeopardizing the beneficial effect of the curative surgery. Biobarrier is a novel anti-adhesive barrier fulfilling the criteria for a good adhesion preventive agent, possessing biochemical properties that may enable it to function as a dual efficient device, reducing both adhesion and tumor development. This study aims to evaluate the effect of novel anti-adhesive device Biobarrier on intra-abdominal tumor progression.
