Executive Summary

Merck Serono's electronic autoinjection device, easypod, has been approved for use with its recombinant human growth hormone, Saizen (somatropin), in Japan. The easypod device allows patients to self-inject in three steps, with the needle being hidden during the injection process. It can also deliver a preset dose and automatically record the number of doses administered, allowing physicians to check patient adherence. The device was made available in the US and a number of European countries in 2007, and is now approved in 40 countries, including the US and those in the EU.
