Mentor's Puragen and Puragen Plus Dermal Filler Products
Approved in Canada
(press release from Mentor Corporation)
SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--Dec 19, 2005 -Non-Animal-Based, Stabilized, Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler Products
Manufactured with Mentor's Patented DXLTM
Mentor Corporation (NYSE:MNT), a leading supplier of medical products in the
United States and internationally, today announced that it has received
approval to begin marketing and distributing its PuragenTM
and Puragen PlusTM hyaluronic acid-based
dermal filler products in Canada. Both products are indicated for the
correction of facial folds and wrinkles and for lip augmentation and will be
distributed through Mentor's Canadian subsidiary.
"Mentor's dermal filler products are important new options that help me
optimize facial rejuvenation outcomes for my patients," commented Claudio De
Lorenzi, M.D., Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and past-President of the
Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and current President of the
Canadian Laser Aesthetic Surgery Society. "I am pleased to now have access
to both of these products for my patients in Canada. It is important to have
alternatives, and I predict that a product that contains anesthetic will be
extremely popular among doctors and patients."
The medical device license applications granted by Health Canada for Puragen
and Puragen Plus were based on data from the Company's U.S. pivotal clinical
trial for Puragen Plus. Both Puragen and Puragen Plus are uniquely
stabilized through Mentor's patent-protected DXLTM
technology, which introduces two discrete cross-linking reactions to provide
improved product stability relative to all other commercially available
hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers on the market in Europe, Canada and the
United States. Puragen Plus is the only hyaluronic acid-based product on the
market in Canada that is formulated with an anesthetic for improved patient
"Puragen and Puragen Plus are Mentor's first products for the fast growing
facial rejuvenation market, and we are pleased that they are now available
in Canada," commented Joshua H. Levine, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Mentor Corporation. "We are committed to developing and marketing
leading products based on advancements in science and technology and expect
to expand our portfolio with botulinum toxin and other products used in
non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the future."
Puragen was launched in Europe in May 2005. The CE Mark for Puragen Plus is
pending. In the United States, Mentor expects to complete the filing of its
pre-market approval application for Puragen Plus in the fourth quarter of
fiscal year 2006, which ends March 31, 2006.
