 CLINTEC BUYS LEADING EUROPEAN ENTERAL NUTRITION COMPANY
 DEERFIELD, Ill., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Clintec, a 50/50 joint venture between Baxter Healthcare Corp. and Nestle S.A., announced today that it has completed the purchase of Laboratoires Sopharga, a leading enteral nutrition company in France. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
 "This acquisition will give us the opportunity to accelerate our expansion into enteral nutrition products and to strengthen our position in the rapidly growing European nutritional market," said Richard B. Egen, president and chief executive officer of Clintec. "This is especially important in light of Europe's post-1922 economic unification.''
 Clintec acquired Laboratoires Sopharga from Roussel Uclaf, a European pharmaceutical company. Laboratoires Sopharga is the market share leader for enteral nutrition products in France and a major player throughout Europe. The company had net sales in 1991 of more than $50 million. In the United States, its elemental diet, Reabilan, is marketed by O'Brien/KMI.
 Clintec provides a full range of nutritional delivery systems, including parenteral products for patients who must be fed intravenously, and enteral products for patients who require oral nutritional supplements. The company has operating units in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Worldwide sales were approximately $300 million in 1991.
