GREENSBORO, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Merz North America (Merz Aesthetics, Inc. and Merz Pharmaceuticals, LLC) announces that effective today, January 9, 2013, the court-ordered injunction has been lifted and patients and physicians now have access to a broader range of treatment options in aesthetic medicine, dermatology, and neurology. “The violations that led to this injunction were directly attributable to the acts of several individuals, and were entirely incompatible with Merz’s culture. We accepted the injunction as a challenge to us to reinforce compliance training throughout the company and to re-imagine a company-wide compliance program. Last summer we directed all our efforts and resources toward the remediation process, and were pleased when the court agreed to a partial lift of the injunction in November 2012,” said Katrina Church, Vice President - Chief Compliance Officer of Merz, Inc. “We believe that compliance policies are an investment in our company’s future.”
