Infusion therapy needs the administration of medication through a needle or catheter.

Some of the known drug therapies today are usually done via infusion: antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, chemotherapy, hydration, pain management, and parenteral nutrition. Infusion therapy is also prescribed for patients who have rare diseases that require a unique or special infusion therapy which is proven to be effective. A handful of drugs are already known today but there are still to be discovered or are new such as blood factors, corticosteroids, erythropoietin, infliximab, inotropic heart medications, growth hormones, immunoglobulin, and natalizumab.

An infusion therapy service provider is usually a state-licensed pharmacy who specializes in the process and provision of infusion therapies particularly home-administered therapies if other than clinical sites.
