Ewha Biomedics, a company specializing in drug injection medical devices, announced on the 14th that it will launch the world's first “HF(High Flow) Anapa(=Anapa SC),” an ultra-precision drug injection device for subcutaneous injection.

HF Anapa(=Anapa SC) is an automatic drug injection medical device aimed at precise administration of anticancer drugs for subcutaneous injection. It is a medical device that generates carbon dioxide gas that is harmless to the human body and injects drugs into the body at a constant rate using the pressure and pressure control device.

According to the company, it relieves the pain and discomfort of patients while subcutaneous injection of existing anticancer drugs. In addition, it improved the difficulty of injecting drugs and the risk of drug exposure during treatment of anticancer drugs by medical staff. Helps more accurately administer anticancer drugs. By injecting drugs regularly using a constant gas pressure, accurate automatic injection of drugs suitable to the anticancer drug dosing regimen is possible. In addition, the patient's pain is reduced by injecting drugs at a constant rate. Since anticancer drugs are automatically injected, the loss of expensive anticancer drugs is minimized with a special design that minimizes residual drugs by medical staff.

The company said, “Recently, as a result of applying the subcutaneous injection of Herceptin, a breast cancer treatment, and Mabthera, a lymphoma treatment, through Samsung Seoul Hospital and Bucheon Soonchunhyang Hospital, The patient's satisfaction with pain relief  such as Reduction of pain during administration, reduction of swelling at the injection site, reduction of pain after administration, etc. was very high." In particular, it was found to be of great help in reducing the psychological burden of medical staff who had no choice but to face the complaints caused by the pain of patients.
