This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Kawasumi Laboratories America has gained US clearance to market its needle safety device for protecting oncology clinicians from Huber needle stick injuries incurred while removing needles from subcutaneous ports. The plastic protection device, called K-Shield, also provides a convenient means for disposing the Huber needle after removal from patients, says the Tampa, Florida-based firm. Kawasumi claims that compared with other types of Huber needle safety devices currently on the market, its product does not discomfort the patient at any time, nor does it present any needle movement during the time of infusion.
