Pharmaderm Annnounces the Arrival of KEROL(TM) ZX and KEROL(TM) Emulsion to Market

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Aug. 29 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Today PharmaDerm, a division of Nycomed US, announced the launch of KEROL ZX and KEROL Emulsion to the dermatology and podiatry markets. These specialty products have been developed for improved treatment of dry skin and damaged nails:

-- KEROL Emulsion (NDC#10337-646-10) is supplied in a 10oz. tube for application to larger skin surface areas.

-- KEROL ZX (NDC#10337-644-97) is now supplied in a 12 mL. pre-filled applicator to deliver targeted relief to smaller areas such as nails, corns, and calluses.

The KEROL products are indicated for debridement and promotion of normal healing of hyperkeratotic surface lesions and contain a zinc undecylate and lactic acid vehicle. They work by gently dissolving the intercellular matrix, resulting in the loosening of the horny outer layer of skin, and revealing healthy skin. They are indicated for hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry rough skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis pilaris, keratosis palmaris, keratoderma, corns and calluses and damaged and devitalized nails.

"This is an exciting time at PharmaDerm as we build the only fully integrated dermatology company in the U.S.," said David Fink, General Manager, PharmaDerm and Senior Vice President, Nycomed US. "The KEROL family of products continues to evolve and improve. These new KEROL products provide physicians and patients with a continuum of new treatment options for dry skin and damaged nails."
