Abbot Nutrition announced Pulmocare which is an oral product designed for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, or respiratory failure. Patients may benefit from a highcalorie, modified carbohydrate and fat, enteral formula that may help reduce diet-induced carbon dioxide production. It is a vanilla flavoured liquid filled in tubes for oral feeding. Beside fat and cabohydrates Pulmocare contains various vitamins, minerals, trace elements and soybean lecithin. In Pulmocare soybean lecithin acts as an oral multifunctional excipient. On the one hand, it gives stabilisation to the emulsion; on the other hand it is an important source of essential fatty acids and calories.
