Lifecore Biomedical gets Japanese approval for implant

Jan. 15, 2002
The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare has given Lifecore the green light to market the STAGE-1(TM) RDS Single Stage TPS Dental Implant System ("Stage-1") in Japan.

The current approval follows a similar approval in Korea last September and represents a continuation of the Company's strategy to increase the sales of its products in the Asian marketplace.

Following a recent announcement by Mayor Willie Brown that San Francisco is one step closer to universal healthcare for children through the Healthy Kids program, Delta Dental Plan of California -- the company selected to administer the dental portion of the program -- announced its invitation to 160 local dentists to participate.
