Paladin Labs Announces the Canadian Launch of Travelan®

 MONTREAL, Aug. 5, 2014 /CNW/ -- Paladin Labs Inc., a subsidiary of Endo  International plc   (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL), announced today the launch of  Travelan®, a unique over-the-counter product to help reduce the risk of  travellers' diarrhea.  Travelan® is clinically proven to provide protection against the main cause  of travellers' diarrhea in 90% of consumers who use it(1). Travelan® is a  convenient option for all those travelling to at-risk regions such as Central  and South America, Mexico, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. It does not  require a prescription, and is not associated with any significant side  effects.  It is estimated that there are over 5 million trips made by Canadians to  at-risk regions every year(2). One-in-three Canadian vacationers have  experienced, or have travelled with someone who has experienced, travellers'  diarrhea(3). Sources of Enterotoxigenic Escherichia Coli (ETEC) bacteria,  which cause the majority of cases of travellers' diarrhea(4), can include  poorly cooked meat, contaminated raw vegetables or unpasteurized dairy  products. Given that no food group can be regarded as "safe"(4), research  demonstrates that three-quarters of Canadians have indicated that they would  take a preventive for travellers' diarrhea(3).  "We are pleased to announce the launch of Travelan® in Canada," said Mark  Beaudet, President of Paladin Labs Inc. "This option responds to the clear  market need for a clinically proven, accessible option to help reduce the risk  of travellers' diarrhea."  Paladin obtained the exclusive rights to market and sell Travelan(® )in  Canada, Latin America (including Brazil and Mexico) and Sub-Saharan Africa  (including South Africa) from Immuron Ltd (ASX:IMC) in November 2011.  About Travelan(®)  Travelan(®) is a natural product which is specifically designed to reduce the  risk of infection by ETEC, the most common cause of travellers' diarrhea. In  clinical trials, Travelan(®) showed efficacy of up to 90% in protecting  against infection with the type of E.Coli that causes travellers' diarrhea. In  addition, trials showed a significant reduction in abdominal cramps and  stomach pain compared to those who did not receive Travelan(®). There were no  reported treatment-related side effects in the clinical trials.  For more information, please visit  Suggested retail price: $29.99-39.99 (pack of 30 tablets).
