KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Provectus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that AmerisourceBergen will sell the company's first over-the-counter (OTC) product, Pure-ific Antibacterial Hand Spray. AmerisourceBergen is a leading distributor of pharmaceutical products and services to independent and chain pharmacies, as well as the hospital market, physician's offices, alternate care and mail-order facilities.
Pure-ific, which comes in a 1-ounce can, is designed to immediately kill up to 99.9 percent of germs on skin and prevents re-growth for up to six hours. It is packaged as a quick-drying spray, leaves no sticky residue, and is appropriate both for hands and for hard surfaces, such as toilet seats.
AmerisourceBergen services the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Network and the Family Pharmacy Network. "Through our relationship with AmerisourceBergen, we
hope to grow sales throughout the 2,000-member Good Neighbor Pharmacy Network,
and then expand into the 2,500-store Family Pharmacy Network, as well," said
Timothy C. Scott, PhD, Provectus president.
Scott said the AmerisourceBergen agreement is significant to Provectus for
two reasons. "First, this agreement will launch our Pure-ific sales
program into the private pharmacies market," Scott said. "Second, the
revenues generated through Pure-ific sales will minimize our need for
additional external funding to support our core work -- clinical trials in
oncology and dermatology. That has always been a vital part of our corporate
strategic plan to maximize shareholder value."
