Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. Congratulates All 2011 Summer National Senior Games Athletes
Date:6/16/2011

PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. proudly sponsors the 2011 Summer National Senior Games (NSG) in Houston in an effort to help increase awareness about the importance of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle—the cornerstone of healthy aging.

The NSG is the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors and is organized by the National Senior Games Association, a non-profit member of the United States Olympic Committee, which is dedicated to motivating senior men and women to lead healthy lifestyles through exercise and fitness.

Knee OA is one of the five leading causes of disability among men and women.1 Additionally, women are disproportionately impacted by the burden of OA. Of the nearly 27 million people affected by OA, approximately 16 million are women.2,3

Last month, Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. launched the W.A.K.E. Up & Flexx Campaign (Women's Arthritic Knee Education), a national public awareness initiative to help address the disproportionately high number of women impacted by knee OA. In order to maintain mobility and health, it is important for those suffering from knee OA and the associated pain to educate themselves and their loved ones about appropriate treatment options by speaking with their physicians.

Gloria Gaynor, the national W.A.K.E. Up & Flexx campaign spokesperson, will help kick off the NSG Opening Ceremonies with a performance of her GRAMMY® award winning song, "I Will Survive"—a tale of personal strength and perseverance.  The EUFLEXXA® team will also have a series of s
