Nestle Introduces PEPTAMEN® BARIATRIC Formula for the Critically-Ill Obese Patient
Date:2/1/2011

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Nestle HealthCare Nutrition announced today the launch of PEPTAMEN® BARIATRIC Formula, a unique tube feeding formula specifically designed for the critically-ill obese patient.
