PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading biopharmaceutical company Paragon BioTeck, Inc. announced today that it plans to launch its new line of products, known as Ilast®, at the Annual American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in New Orleans. Paragon signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Horus Pharma to supply Ilast® ocular care products in the U.S. last month, and the company is excited to release these products to ophthalmology professionals.
Ilast is a scientifically-formulated line of lid care and ocular hygiene products designed to support the health of the eye and the tissue that surrounds it. Ilast is free from preservatives, thus eliminating many of the allergenic and cytotoxic properties that often cause irritation to the delicate skin around the eye. Ilast products are manufactured using a patented process known as Epifree® Technology. This process uses low-temperature sterilization to maximize the effectiveness of active ingredients while simultaneously maintaining the microbiological integrity of the product.
