CINCINNATI -- The Kroger Co. here has entered into a new partnership with RBC Life Sciences' wholly owned subsidiary, MPM Medical, Inc., to make the latter?s oncology products available to cancer patients.
Beginning March 1, 2008, Kroger will place in each of its 1,900 company pharmacies two of MPM?s oncology products: RadiaPlex Rx, a hydrogel designed to protect a patient?s skin from radiation reactions and to assist in healing the skin if dermatitis occurs, and Regenecare HA, a hydrogel containing lidocaine, collagen, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to relieve pain and itching caused by chemotherapy drugs.
Paul Miller, MPM Medical president, said the partnership "is our first step to making our pain-relieving products more readily available to the patients who rely on them for healing and pain relief on a daily basis. It is our goal to ensure that any person who is in need of MPM's oncology products will be able to obtain them in a convenient affordable manner."
Kroger operates 2,487 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 31 states under two dozen local banners.
