Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (IART), 313 Enterprise Drive, Plainsboro 08536; 609-936-3600; fax, 609-275-5363. Peter Arduini, CEO. www.integralife.com.

Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation, a medical technology company, is planning to spin off SeaSpine Holdings Corporation. SeaSpine, a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, has a comprehensive portfolio of orthobiologics and spinal fusion hardware. SeaSpine will be headquartered in Vista, California, near San Diego.

“We believe that an independent SeaSpine will focus its investments on research and development and sales and marketing to drive faster growth. Similarly, the separation will result in faster growth for the remaining Integra businesses, Specialty Surgical Solutions and Orthopedics and Tissue Technologies,” said Peter Arduini, Integra’s president and chief executive officer.

The company filed paperwork with the SEC on April 1 as a step towards completing the spinoff, which Integra expects will be completed in the second half of the year. SeaSpine will trade on NASDAQ.

Novo Nordisk Inc. (NVO), 800 Scudders Mill Road, Princeton 08540-6213; 609-987-5800; fax, 609-919-7801. Jerzy Gruhn, president. www.novonordisk-us.com.

Novo Nordisk plans to launch a hemophilia A drug, Novoeight, in the United States. The drug was shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials with 213 previously treated patients with hemophilia A. Novo Nordisk plans to make Novoeight available by mid-April of this year.

“Hemophilia patients have unique, individualized needs, so it is critical for them to have access to different therapies,” said Roshni Kulkarni, professor of pediatric hematology/oncology at the Centers for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders, Michigan State University. “Today’s patients are looking for options that fit into their busy lives, and it’s encouraging to see new treatment options that further serve patients within the bleeding disorders community.”

The FDA approved Novoeight for use in adults and children with hemophilia A for the control and prevention of bleeding, perioperative management, and routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes.
