Date:1/24/2008

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Aton Pharma, Inc., a global specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that it has launched an expanded, comprehensive distribution program that incorporates sampling, reimbursement assistance and patient education resources, for the dry eye medication Lacrisert(R) (hydroxypropyl cellulose ophthalmic insert).
