ZURICH, Switzerland, Feb. 26, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The Swedish Medical Product Agency (Laekemedelsverket) has informed that the matter of marketing surveillance for the two products NobelDirect and NobelPerfect one-piece issued on 6 December 2006 is closed.

The Swedish Medical Product Agency had issued a directive related to the marketing surveillance for the above-mentioned products on said date.

The agency has in the meantime reviewed all submitted data and information, in particular the 3-year follow-up, submitted by Nobel Biocare in late 2007, the data submitted by other parties as well as the amended instructions for use for both products.
