More Drugs from Pharmacy Linked to Fungal Infections
Two more drugs from the New England Compounding Center (NECC) are being investigated for possibly causing meningitis and other infections.
NECC recalled all products earlier this month after their Methylprednisolone Acetate back injections were linked to a nationwide outbreak of fungal meningitis that has sickened more than 200 and left 15 dead.
Two Additional Drugs Under Investigation
Under Investigation: Triamcinolone Acetonide produced at NECC.
- Triamcinolone acetonide steroid injections have been tentatively linked to one case of fungal meningitis.
Under Investigation: NECC drugs used in eye surgery and heart operations.
- Two transplant patients contracted Aspergillus fumigatus infections after being administered a NECC- manufactured cardioplegic solution during heart surgery.
- This investigation is ongoing, and the link between their infection and the NECC medication remains tentative.
