Drinking straw a novel antibiotic delivery for children

Published on 17/01/06 at 04:50pm

A new drinking straw that administers antibiotics to children as they drink has been launched by German pharma company Grunenthal.

Clarosip contains the antibiotic clarithromycin, in the form of neutral tasting granules. When a child sips a drink through Clarosip, they take the antibiotic unaware that they have just been given medicine.

Grunenthal says the new delivery system reduces the stress of giving antibiotics to children, ensuring they receive the correct dose and complete the prescribed course.

Nine out of ten children that tried Clarosip in a clinical trial took the 10-day course of clarithromycin.
