    Urology segment

    A small product Contigen in the urology segment will disappear in 18 months because Allergan the supplier of the collagen is shutting down production. Why not qualify a new supplier? Is the brand so small that it is not worth the expense of qualifying a new supplier?

    • This product was innovative years ago when it came out: biomaterial, non-invasive, and easy to administer. It is temporary b/c the collagen is absorbed and you need to get repeated injections. Bard thought the re-occuring revenue would be a windfall, patients thought otherwise. So... they bought a start up years ago (1997) which would be a permanent solution. They did nothing with it. Why? That is what I want to know? As for a new supplier of collagen, yes very possible.
