Dear Lori,

Please find the Emergency Assistance mailing labels you requested. The Emergency Assistance Program is our one link to direct medical care facilities and hospitals serving HIV infected and affected families. The Foundation thinks that it is truly wonderful that your organization provides such an important and vital component to a child's health and well-being.

I have also enclosed our adherence brochure (in English and Spanish) and welcome any comments and suggestions you may have.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Dear Delores,

I trialed the medibottle in my clinics over a one month period of time in August of 1997. The trial was set up as a new product trial for potential recommendation to the New Product's Committee.

The group of children I selected for this trial were under the age of 18 months. A total of ten children participated. They were given the medication chloral hydrate. The Medibottle was used to administer this bitter tasting medication and given along with 15-30cc's [but never more than 30cc's] of a clear liquid. The amount of clear liquid was enforced because the medication was being given to sedate the children.

All ten of the children took the full dose of medication using the Medibottle as instructed in the Medibottle brochure [with "little squirts"]. They not only took the full dose of medication but they took it willingly. If you have ever given chloral hydrate you know this is quite a feat! It should be noted that five of the ten children had received chloral hydrate in the past and required a restraining technique to administer the full dose of this medication. The parents of these five children, in particular, were very impressed with the Medibottle. They were able to see the difference in the child's response to receiving the medication. The parents were given the Medibottle for their personal use after the medication was administered.

I highly recommended this product to our New Product's Committee. It is still in the process of evaluation with this committee.

If you have any further questions on my experience with the Medibottle feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

Dear John:

Getting infants to take medication is often a challenge. They fight, spit up and become generally more cranky - not what a parent wants when their child is already ill.

Recently, I have started recommending the MediBottle as a fuss-free, reliable and safe way to administer medication to infants still on a bottle.

Feedback from parents has been very positive. They are extremely relieved and no longer dread giving necessary medication to their children, and I'm sure the infants are happier as well, no longer having to fight the battle over taking the medicine.

I will continue to recommend this stress-reducing, compliance-enhancing device to my parents of infants.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Burchett:

I would like to thank you for sending me a supply of the Medibottles for our Pediatric HIV/AIDS clinic patients. The mothers with young infants and toddlers who need to give the medications to their young children have found them very helpful.

I was able to bring an example of the Medibottle and some of your information and the video to the Pediatric AIDS Clinical Trial Group meeting in Washington, D.C. in July. We discussed the usefulness of the Medibottle in giving the medications to infants and toddlers with HIV at the Study Nurses Staff retreat. Many felt this would be a useful way to help parents and caretakers administer the difficult medications to the children, especially in light of the difficulty with adherence to these medications. We had an example of this bottle at the "Adherence Fair" as well.

Thank you for sharing the innovative and useful "medibottle" with us. I look forward to recommending it for other parents and caretakers of infants and children who may have difficulties in giving medications to their babies.

Dear Lori,

One of the major challenges parents face is administering medication to their child. Children often are uncooperative, and fight and spit out medication.

The MediBottle enables parents to administer medication to their child quickly and easily. We recommend the MediBottle to parents and will continue to do so.

Sincerely,

Mary E. Lewis, M.D.

Dear Mark,

Our practice recently started to recommend the Medibottle to families to help administer medication to infants. It has proven to be helpful in delivering medication to our young patients who frequently can be difficult medicine takers.

It is a pleasure to have a product available like the Medibottle that helps the parents to give an infants' medicine with less stress and greater compliance.

Sincerely,

Robert Schloegel, M.D., F.A.A.P.
