This project responds to the urgent call to develop and use local technologies to meet demands for intravenous fluids (IVF) specially among the indigent patients in PGH and two other selected government hospitals in Metro Manila.This project aims at developing our own technology using indigenous raw materials.

The study aims to 1) establish a small-scale, non-commercial IVF plant using locally produced raw materials; 2) conduct clinical trials to ensure that product has no adverse effect; 3) supply the IVF requirements of PGH and two other selected government hospitals in Metro Manila and 4) establish market for indigenous raw materials and finished products, thus, saving a foreign exchange.
