a new drug for use in Pediatric Rehydration

the question is  with all drug  how long must the clock tick before it becomes available in the most neediest of places, at a price point that makes it  affordable to be subsidized by agencies.

This allows for rapid treatment initiation and delivery of intravenous (IV)-like fluid rates, which can help lead to successful rehydration of children in a less invasive manner. Additionally, data from Baxter’s Increased Flow Utilizing Subcutaneously-Enabled (INFUSE) PEDS 1 study are debuting today in the preeminent pediatric journal, Pediatrics. The study was designed to assess the efficacy, safety and clinical utility of HYLENEX recombinant-facilitated subcutaneous rehydration in mild to moderately dehydrated children ages two months to 10 years.

(Nasdaq: HALO)…..
