Katherine:
        The only exceptions to the 5.0 EU/Kg rule that I'm aware of, are
     intrathecals, which (if memory serves) are 0.2 EU/Kg..... I believe
     the "per Kg" part is supposed to account for pediatrics: Smaller body
     mass--

Hi:

We use 5 EU/Kg as the endotoxin limit for parenteral products.  Is there
a lower limit for pediatric products?   Are children/infant more
sensitive?  Thank you in advance for your help.
