Bristol-Myers Squibb launches clinical centre for children's immune system disorders and infectious diseases

Bristol-Myers Squibb : 03 December, 2007  (New Product)
Bristol-Myers Squibb has joined Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to launch a new clinical centre at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
The new centre is dedicated to research and treatment of children's immune system disorders and infectious diseases.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Infectious Disease and Immunology Center is one of three new clinical centres at the children's hospital made possible by a $5 million gift from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.

'At Bristol-Myers Squibb, we believe that together we can prevail over serious illness,' said Jill DeSimone, senior vice president of the company's US Virology division. 'We are committed as a company in the battle against HIV/AIDS here in our community and throughout the world, and we stand united with others who are working to improve the lives of children and all people afflicted with this debilitating disease.'

The new infectious disease and immunology centre is the latest example of the company's support for the New Brunswick children's hospital, built in part with a philanthropic gift from Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation. The centre will not only treat paediatric HIV, it will also focus on emerging resistant infections, including those caused by community-acquired methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Earlier in 2007 the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital opened a paediatric rheumatology centre dedicated to the research and treatment of rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Last year, the children's hospital opened a paediatric metabolism centre to focus on obesity and its related health effects.

'Our hospital is extremely proud of our longstanding partnership with Bristol-Myers Squibb,' said Stephen K Jones, president and chief executive officer of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. 'Thanks to their generous support, our children's hospital is helping families confront some of the most serious health threats facing children.'
