Endo Pharmaceuticals Contributes Anesthetic

CHADDS FORD, Pa. — Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. donated more than 200,000 Synera(R) (lidocaine 70 mg / tetracaine 70 mg) topical patches to the humanitarian organization AmeriCares, a non-profit international relief organization that delivers medicines and medical supplies to people in need around the globe.

Synera is a topical anesthetic approved in the United States for use on intact skin to provide local dermal analgesia for superficial venous access and superficial dermatological procedures in both children 3 years and older and adults.

"One of the most difficult health issues in developing countries is that many people lack access to medicine," said Curt Welling, president and CEO of AmeriCares. "AmeriCares is grateful to Endo for giving us the ability to provide a much needed product to thousands of children around the world who are unable to get the care they desperately need."

AmeriCares partners with local health care providers in more than 30 countries and plans to distribute the topical anesthetic patches to those who have requested the product in order to limit the pain children experience during superficial venous access procedures.

"We feel extraordinarily privileged to partner with an organization that has helped so many when help was needed most," said Peter A. Lankau, president and CEO of Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. "We hope this charitable donation will help provide relief to those who need it around the world and we are proud to support AmeriCares' mission."

Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc., which is a subsidiary of Endo Pharmaceuticals Holdings Inc., is a pharmaceutical company with a focus in pain management products. The company researches, develops, produces and markets a broad product offering of branded and generic pharmaceuticals, meeting the needs of healthcare professionals and consumers alike.

One of the best and sometimes easiest contributes a company can make is in offering the products it produces or the services it provides. Here, Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. was able to make a substantial contribution of product to a nonprofit organization with that specific need.
