Disetronic's Dahedi Insulin Pump Wins FDA Approval

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA) has approved Disetronic's Dahedi 25 insulin pump for 
sale following successful conclusion of its 510(k) registration process. 
Disetronic will thus soon be able to launch the world's smallest insulin pump 
on the U.S. market and to further expand its position as a leading provider 
of innovative products for diabetes care. The Dahedi 25 measures about two 
thirds of the size of standard insulin pumps and weighs about 20% less. It is 
already on sale in Germany and the Netherlands.

The Disetronic Group is a leading worldwide supplier of infusion and 
injection systems and packaging systems for administering and packaging 
liquid medication. Disetronic is one of the world's leading suppliers of 
insulin pumps for the treatment of diabetes and of injection "pens" for 
various therapies. In the 1998/99 business year the Disetronic Group recorded 
sales of CHF 206.0 mn (+56.2% over the previous year). The shares of 
Disetronic Holding AG have been trading on the Swiss Exchange since 1996
