NEW DELHI/MUMBAI, April 28 (Reuters) - A group of global medical-technology companies plans to tell Indian officials next month that any further price control measures would risk future investments and make them less likely to introduce new products in the country, according to an industry source familiar with the matter. The lobbying effort by Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson and others comes after the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February set a price cap for stents - small wire-mesh structures used to treat blocked arteries - slashing prices that patients pay for some devices by about 75 percent.

Abbott Introduces Science-Based Nutrition Drinks to Help Patients Have a Better Recovery from Surgery
ABBOTT PARK, Ill., April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 48 million surgeries happen in the U.S. each year,1 and for many of those patients, food is off the table in the hours prior to their procedure. According to a new survey of 1,015 Americans, supported by Abbott, a majority (79 percent) of the respondents who had undergone surgery were instructed by a doctor not to eat or drink before their surgery.2 Yet, surgical guidelines from organizations including the American College of Surgeons and the latest research recommend that certain nutrition should be consumed before and after surgery to help patients have a faster recovery, allowing them to get back to daily activities. Ensure® Surgery Immunonutrition Shake is for people to drink in the week leading up to and following surgery to provide nutrients, such as arginine and omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, to help with immune health and recovery.
