"We are excited to provide eye care professionals with a new and powerful topical steroid," said Susan Benton, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sirion Therapeutics, Inc.

Sirion Therapeutics has built a fully-staffed commercial infrastructure comprised of a national specialty sales force that will promote Durezol, a Medical Science Liaison team that will communicate clinical information to the medical community, and a managed markets group that will secure access to Durezol through pharmacies and insurance plans.

Other marketing and product support initiatives in progress include an extensive sampling program, direct mail communications to physicians and pharmacists, the Durezol web site (http://www.durezol.com), telemarketing, a reimbursement hotline, a patient-assistance program, and a customer support number (1-866-4SIRION).
