DALLAS and NEW YORK, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ACCESS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC. (OTCBB: ACCP), a biopharmaceutical company leveraging its proprietary drug-delivery platforms to develop treatments in areas of oncology, diabetes, and RNAi, announced that it had made significant progress with the commercial introduction of MuGard in the radiation oncology and medical oncology communities.  MuGard is a novel, ready-to-use mucoadhesive oral wound rinse and coating that has been shown to be very effective in the management of oral mucositis, a debilitating side effect of many anticancer treatments.  Access provided the following information related to its ongoing commercialization efforts:

  • Salesforce Management:  At the end of 2010, Access commenced training of third-party MuGard representatives on the product, the oral mucositis condition and sales strategy.  These reps initiated a broad-scale marketing push that will continue throughout 2011.  While greater than 90 reps have received initial MuGard training, efforts to identify and train additional representatives in uncovered or under-resourced geographic areas will also remain a focus throughout the year.
