9 As the leading pharmaceutical company in the region, PLIVA has received with
10 great concern the news about the sudden deaths of patients who were dialysed
11 in hospitals.<br>
12 <br>
13 Upon receiving the information, PLIVA has, in cooperation with the Ministry
14 of Health of the Republic of Croatia, undertaken all necessary precautions
15 and has started a broad-scale analysis of all the elements of this tragic
16 situation. Our first and foremost concern in doing so is to protect patients
17 and determine all the facts.<br>
18 PLIVA immediately established a crisis centre and is in ongoing contact with
19 the Ministry of Health.<br>
20 <br>
21 PLIVA is a manufacturer of solutions used for hemodialysis treatment. Yesterday
22 and today we have analysed these solutions and the results rule out the possibility
23 of these solutions being the cause of the deaths.<br>
24 <br>
25 Apart from manufacturing solutions, PLIVA imports dialysers produced by the
26 US company <a href="http://www.baxter.com">Baxter</a>
27 . Baxter is one of the two leading dialyser manufacturers in the world. PLIVA
28 has been cooperating with Baxter for 12 years and during that time there
29 have never been any difficulties. Baxter delivers the dialysers to PLIVA
30 in unit packages with quality certificates. It delivers 180000 dialysers
31 to PLIVA annually. PLIVA has immediately requested Baxter&#8217;s experts to arrive
32 and they are expected in Zagreb today.<br>
33 <br>
34 PLIVA is actively participating in solving this crisis, which it is taking
35 very seriously, and in its further activities PLIVA will insist on having
36 all the circumstances of these tragic events determined and will cooperate
37 closely with all the relevant institutions.<br>
