Kleinostheim, Germany, 18th November 2010 – curasan AG, listed in the General Standard (ISIN: DE 000 549 453 8) has received the certification for the synthetic bone regeneration material Cerasorb® M ORTHO from the Canadian authorities, Health Canada.

“This news has come as a pleasant surprise”, stated Hans Dieter Rössler, CEO. “Since the approval process for medical devices by the Canadian authorities is highly demanding, we were actually expecting the certification some time next year.”

Furthermore, curasan AG considers that the experience gained with the authorities in Canada will be useful and beneficial for other product approvals in this market. This is a significant development for potential sales partners since further new bio materials are expected to be available earlier for market launch.
