10/14/2009 11:02:43 AM

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Timm Medical Technologies, Inc., a specialist Urology company, announced today its exclusive co-promotion agreement with Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc., a Swiss-based biopharmaceutical company, for Prosed(R) DS (methenamine, phenyl salicylate, methylene blue, benzoic acid, hyoscyamine sulfate) in the United States.

Under the agreement, Timm Medical will be responsible for promoting Prosed(R) DS to urologists and retail pharmacists in the United States. Ferring will continue to promote Prosed(R) DS to physicians in the United States and will retain responsibility for manufacturing, supply and regulatory affairs.

Prosed(R) DS is a urinary analgesic, antiseptic and antispasmodic combination. Prosed(R) DS has a long history of use for the treatment of pain and discomfort of the lower urinary tract.

"We are excited to partner with Ferring Pharmaceuticals to promote this well-established treatment for urinary discomfort," commented David Talen, President of Timm Medical.
