Sorry to put this here, I couldn’t figure out how to put it on the “Uncategorized” page.
I was watching TV awhile back, and again today and the commercial for the Neulasta OnPro Kit caught my attention. I swear it looks like a repurposed Omnipod pod! It’s a single-use on-body injector that is set to inject a dose of a medication taken after a certain type of chemotherapy to help reduce risk of infection. There doesn’t seem to be a PDM, but the pod delivers an injection 24-27 hours after chemotherapy and over the course of 45 minutes.
I think it’s really cool that they are finding other uses for these pods, and it’s awesome that someone who has just undergone chemo the day before doesn’t necessarily need to make a trip back up to the treatment center just to get a shot when they may not be feeling great.
