Hospira Japan Receives Approval for New Indication for 'Precedex IV™ 200ug'
Date:8/22/2010

OSAKA, Japan, Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hospira Japan Co., Ltd. today announced it has received an approval for the long-term (greater than 24 hour) use of the sedative "Precedex IV™200ug" (generic name: dexmedetomidine hydrochloride).
