ARTISS [Fibrin Sealant], Vapor Heated, Solvent Detergent Treated, (ARTISS) is a two-component fibrin sealant made from pooled human plasma. When combined, the two components, Sealer Protein (Human) and Thrombin (Human), mimic the final stage of the blood coagulation cascade.
ARTISS is indicated to adhere autologous skin grafts to surgically prepared wound beds resulting from burns in adult and pediatric populations.
ARTISS is not indicated for hemostasis.

Shivering 'as good as exercise' for producing brown fat
Source: Sports Medicine / Fitness News From Medical News Today [2014.02.08]
Previous research has shown that moderate exercise can help turn energy-storing white fat into brown fat - the "good" fat that burns energy and helps keep us warm. But new research published in Cell Metabolism suggests that shivering for 10-15 minutes can do the same job.According to the research team, led by Dr.

Wound healing and the immune response in swine treated with a hemostatic bandage composed of salmon thrombin and fibrinogen. [2009.10]
We investigated the inflammatory response in pigs exposed to salmon fibrinogen/thrombin dressings. Animals were exposed to the material in 3 ways: (a) thrombin and fibrinogen were injected intravenously, (b) dual full-thickness skin lesions were surgically created on the dorsal aspect of the swine and treated with the fibrinogen/thrombin bandage and a commercial bandage or (c) a fibrinogen/thrombin bandage was inserted through an abdominal incision into the peritoneal cavity...
Clinical Trials Related to Artiss (Fibrinogen / Thrombin Human)
A Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of ARTISS Human Fibrin Sealant as Used in External Rhinoplasty [Not yet recruiting]
Rhinoplasty (nasal reconstruction i. e. "a nose job") is a surgical procedure performed on
the nose to correct a medical problem or change the appearance of the nose. During the
healing process, swelling and/or bruising is likely to occur. A drug called ARTISS Fibrin
Sealant may or may not lessen these effects. This study is looking to see the effects of
ARTISS on adhering tissue and improving wound healing in an external rhinoplasty. The
purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of rhinoplasty using
ARTISS compared to rhinoplasty without using ARTISS in patients undergoing rhinoplasty
performed through an external approach.
