Ferring Pharmaceuticals Announces Disco Icon Gloria Gaynor as National Spokesperson for EUFLEXXA(R)
Date:5/13/2010

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. announces that Grammy Award winner Gloria Gaynor will serve as the national spokesperson for the company's hyaluronic acid treatment therapy, EUFLEXXA® (1% sodium hyaluronate), for the pain associated with knee osteoarthritis (OA).  The announcement comes as Gaynor celebrates the 30th anniversary of her number one hit single, "I Will Survive."  Gaynor has been nicknamed the "Queen of Disco" and her songs and iconic voice define a generation.    

Gaynor was diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis in 1984, when she was 41 years old. She tried many options from ice packs to pain medications. In 2009, after her doctor recommended EUFLEXXA, Gloria began to feel relief.  

"I can walk up and down stairs with ease and stand with minimal pain -- even from a lower seat which was always very painful," said Gaynor.  "I am able to do more activities on stage now with less pain, which has always been my greatest passion."  In the last year, Gloria has also lost 55 pounds due to her increased activity and is still traveling and performing all over the world.

As the national spokesperson for EUFLEXXA, Gaynor hopes to increase awareness of knee OA and educate those who suffer from knee pain about the treatment options that are available to them.  "We are proud to have such an amazing entertainer as the face of our product," said Bill Garbarini, VP Orthopaedics/Urology Business Unit at Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc.  "Gloria is as passionate as we are about providing education about osteoarthritis of the knee and possible treatment options for the associated pain."
