17:49 EDTCBSTCubist issues voluntary nationwide recall of nine lots of CUBICIN
Cubist Pharmaceuticals announced it is voluntarily recalling nine lots of CUBICIN to the user level following complaints of foreign particulate matter in reconstituted vials. The administration of particulate matter, if present in an intravenous drug, poses a potential safety risk to patients such as a thromboembolism or a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Other events such as phlebitis, mechanical block of the capillaries or arterioles, activation of platelets or subsequent generation of microthrombi are also possible. Patients with a preexisting condition of trauma or other medical condition that adversely affects the microvascular blood supply are at an increased risk. Administration of a particulate can also lead to formation of granulomas, which represent a protective local inflammatory response to the foreign material. To date, no reports of adverse events have been associated with product complaints of particulate matter from these lots. CUBICIN is an intravenously administered prescription product indicated for the treatment of skin infections and certain blood stream infections.
