Expo launches first-ever washable dry-erase markers
ATLANTA Newell Rubbermaid’s Expo brand has launched its first line of washable markers, making them ideal for use at home, in the classroom and in the car.
Expo washable dry-erase markers can be found wherever office products are sold and are available in three- and six-count packs, as well as a six-count pack with a learning board and a 24-count classroom pack. Suggested retail price for three-count packs of fine-tip and bullet-tip markers are $3.85 and $4.50, respectively; six pack fine-tip and bullet-tip are $7.70 and $9.00; six-count pack with a learning board is $7.70; and the 24-count classroom pack is $24.80.
“Through our consumer insights work, we discovered an unmet consumer need for a washable dry erase marker,” said Sally Grimes, VP marketing for Newell Rubbermaid’s markers, highlighters, art and office organization global business unit. “We found parents and teachers were often frustrated when trying to remove dry-erase marker stains and with the expense of having to replace marker-stained clothes. Expo Washable puts an end to this costly and time-consuming problem so parents and teachers can rest assured that no permanent damage should be done to clothing, furniture and most other washable fabrics when children use dry-erase markers.”

Ferring launches Lysteda
PARSIPPANY, N.J. Drug maker Ferring Pharmaceuticals has launched a new treatment for women with cyclic heavy menstrual bleeding, Ferring said Monday.
Ferring announced the availability of Lysteda (tranexamic acid) tablets, which it bills as the only non-hormonal and non-surgical therapy for women with cyclic heavy menstrual bleeding. As many as 22 million women in the United States experience HMB.
“Heavy menstrual bleeding is a common condition that can significantly interfere with a woman’s daily activities,” Ferring VP medical affairs Edward Trott said. “Many women consider the condition normal and are unaware that there are treatments available, so they don’t ask their doctor about it.”
