DALLAS, April 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ACCESS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC. (OTC Bulletin Board: ACCP), announced today that MuGard(TM), its proprietary polymer-based oral mucositis product has been launched in Germany, Italy, UK, Greece and the Nordic countries by its European commercial partner, SpePharm, a pan-European specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to the provision of high medical value medicines in supportive and critical care.
