Full Description:
(Fort Worth, TX, USA) — HEALTHPOINT, Ltd., a Texas, USA-based market leader in tissue management, surgical, and dermatology products, has introduced the first unit dose packaging of its popular prescription ointments Panafil® and Accuzyme®---in bar coded six-gram units to complement the standard 30 gram tubes.

Accuzyme is an enzymatic debriding ointment used to treat necrotic wounds, pressure ulcers and burns by removing dead tissue without harming living tissue. Panafil is a healing, debriding, and deodorizing ointment that promotes healing, controls inflammation and reduces wound odors.

“Chronic wounds affect millions of people every day,” said Richard Rudman, wound management marketing director for HEALTHPOINT. “These new six gram unit doses are a safe, easy option for first time applications and for situations that require less therapy.”

Unit doses for Panafil® and Accuzyme® will be available February 1 across the United States. Panafil and Accuzyme are generally well tolerated, however upon application a small percentage of patients may experience a brief stinging sensation.

Since its inception in 1992, HEALTHPOINT has established an international presence in the research, development, and marketing of branded pharmaceuticals, over the counter drugs, and medical devices for the tissue management, dermatology, and surgical. An aggressive research and development effort has brought HEALTHPOINT’s unique technologies to the market, setting the pace for its highly trained U.S. field sales organization. HEALTHPOINT, with over 250 employees, is a DFB Pharmaceuticals, Inc. affiliate company.
