[quote:DoorBert:MV8yMDEzMDkyXzMzODI3Nzc2Xzc1Q0JBQjQy] About 13,000 patients across 23 states may have been injected with a potentially contaminated steroid that's linked to a national meningitis outbreak, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday. Typically used to relieve back pain, the steroid, methylprednisolone acetate, was made by New England Compounding Center in Framingham (NECC), Mass., where a leafy mold likely contaminated the product. http://health.usnews.com/health-news/articles/2012/10/09/health-buzz-thousands-at-risk-of-fungal-meningitis [/quote]
