Monday's posts from the Food and Drug Administration have revealed a big list of more than 1,200 hospitals and clinics, whom the experts have found, had purchased steroids and other drugs from NECC, which are at higher chances of being contaminated and if they are, they could prove out to be severely dangerous for the patients at all those facilities.
The online post from the authority has warned the patients of all the mentioned authorities to might have received potentially contaminated drugs from the New England Compounding Center, whose products have been already associated with 297 illnesses and 23 deaths as far as reports confirmed.
However, the agency for the time being has taken down its list realizing that it isn't providing an accurate data to the public. "FDA has found some technical problems with the list and the data are incorrect", said the statement on the agency's website.
In the mean time, FDA spokeswoman Ms. Sarah Clark-Lynn has named few drugs, which the authority believes are of big concern. The list includes triamcinolone acetonide (injectable steroid that treats pain), some injectable drugs that are used for eye surgery, along with cardioplegic solutions, which are used during open heart surgeries.
The FDA has also issued warnings to patients, who have received any of the above mentioned drugs to be vigilant for any of the symptoms of fungal meningitis, such as headache and fever.
