In an example of innovation across country borders, Paris-based Gecko Biomedical is developing tissue adhesive technology for wound closure and sealing in collaboration with cofounder Dr. Robert Langer.

According to the company’s Web site, the adhesive improves on today’s wound closure technology by being viscous and hydrophobic. These properties may make the adhesive technology useful for cardiovascular and gastrointestinal procedures.
