Intravenous infusion at home


Intravenous news: report “A new pilot scheme to treat rheumatoid arthritis sufferers outside the hospital has been hailed as a success by doctors working in the field.

Currently most patients who receive expensive mono-clonal antibody treatments intravenously do so in hospitals, but a number of pilot schemes in the Dublin area have found that the drugs can be given efficiently, either in a GP’s surgery or a health centre, with intravenous infusion.

The results of a pilot project in a health clinic in Dundrum Town Centre has been published in The Irish Journal of Medical Science.

Its findings will be revealed at a major conference on arthritis which takes place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin from this Friday, June 19th until Sunday, June 21st”.
