Pioneer in Women's Health Marks 64 Years of Innovation and Growth

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Mission Pharmacal Company this year celebrates 64 years of excellence in manufacturing and distributing pharmaceutical products primarily for women's health. For more than six decades, Mission Pharmacal has enhanced the quality of consumers' lives through innovative, science-based, quality pharmaceutical products, vitamins and supplements.

Founded in 1945 by H.N. Walsdorf, a pharmacist, the Texas-based company was built on the philosophy that most existing pharmaceutical formulations had the potential to be more effective and better tolerated. Three generations later, Neill B. Walsdorf, Jr. carries on the traditions of quality and value established by his grandfather and continued by his father.

"We are honored to celebrate 64 years in the pharmaceutical industry," said Neill Walsdorf, Jr., president of Mission Pharmacal. "We recognize this achievement and will continue my grandfather's mission to provide breakthrough products and the level of quality that has been associated with the Mission name. In addition to our expertise in current therapeutic areas, we will look to developments in new areas of osteoporosis, urolithiasis and cardiovascular disease."

The company has a broad portfolio of over-the-counter and prescription products that enhance prenatal nutrition, treat parasitic and bacterial infections, prevent kidney stone recurrence and help relieve arthritis and muscle pain. Major brands include the CitraNatal(R) family of prescription prenatal vitamins, designed to support pregnant women's comfort with calcium citrate and other well-tolerated ingredients while optimizing nutrition for their babies' growth and development; Ferralet(R) 90, for iron deficiency anemia, that transforms prescription oral iron therapy into a gentle experience with carbonyl iron; Tindamax(R) (tinidazole), the only oral antimicrobial approved for the treatment of both trichomoniasis and bacterial vaginosis (as well as many other bacterial infections) and Urocit-K(R), a formulation of potassium citrate used to treat nephrolithiasis in people with kidney stones that is the standard treatment in its category.
