Date:2/16/2010

BEDFORD, Ohio, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Bedford Laboratories™, a division of Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc., a provider of select specialty injectables, is pleased to announce the addition of Indomethacin for Injection to its existing product line.  This product is AP rated and is equivalent to Indocin® by Lundbeck, Inc. Indomethacin for Injection is indicated to close a hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus in premature infants weighing between 500 and 1750 g when after 48 hours usual medical management (e.g., fluid restriction, diuretics, digitalis, respiratory support, etc.) is ineffective.  Clear-cut clinical evidence of a hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus should be present, such as respiratory distress, a continuous murmur, a hyperactive precordium, cardiomegaly and pulmonary plethora on chest x-ray.
