Main Street Family Pharmacy in Tennessee: FDA Alerts Health Care Providers of Adverse Reactions
Associated with Steroid Injections
More Infections Linked to Tainted Steroids
ATLANTA - The CDC said it has now received reports of 20 infections in three states linked to injectable steroids distributed by a Tennessee compounding pharmacy, but none involved fungal meningitis.
The study was conducted at five hospitals across the United States. Researchers from 3M's Infection Prevention Division examined 275 flexible endoscopes. Types examined include ones inserted through the mouth, such as duodenoscopes, which examine the first section of the small intestine, and gastroscopes, which look at the stomach. Researchers also inspected colonoscopies, which are inserted through the anus to examine the colon. They found that 30 percent of duodenoscopes, 24 percent of gastroscopes, and 3 percent of colonoscopies didn't pass a cleanliness rating test.
