RE: [IP] Spirit pump


Disetronic, now owned by Roche, is not shipping new pumps to the US or
Canada, but is selling pumps in other countries and is supporting all
existing customers. Roche received FDA approval for their new ACCU-CHEK
Spirit insulin pump and should be marketing it in the US and Canada sometime
in 2005.

Subject: Re: [IP] Spirit pump

It is my understanding that Roche is working with the FDA to allow the  
 Spirit to be imported into the country. Roche reports that there are around
15,000 Spirit insulin pumps being used throughout the world and the US  FDA
 working with Roche on other issues that have nothing to do with the Spirit.
I've been waiting for almost a year for the Spirit to be available in  the
US and 
unless something fails on my MM 511 pump again, I will continue to  wait. .
