    - Asset Purchase Agreement Signed for Marketed Prescription Products
      Desonate(R) and NeoBenz(R) Micro

Intendis GmbH, which is part of Bayer HealthCare, announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire two prescription dermatology product lines from SkinMedica, Inc., a dermatology company based in Carlsbad, CA, USA.
