As it digested 2013's $4 billion buyout of Gambro, the big news for Baxter last year and in 2015 was the spinout of part of its pharmacy business as Baxalta. Baxter also sold off its vaccines business last year, to pharma giant Pfizer for $365 million, and closed the sale of its continuous renal replacement therapy business to Nikkiso. The company recalled some of its Sigma Spectrum infusion pumps in 2014, but won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for a next-generation version of the Sigma Spectrum a little while later.
