San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for INR Professional Test Strips.
On May 7, the US FDA announced that Alere INRatio2 PT/INR Professional Test Strips are recalled (Class I) as there have been complaints of patients (three of which described bleeding associated with patient deaths) who had a therapeutic or near therapeutic INR with the specific test strip (PN 99008G2) but a significantly higher INR when performed by a central laboratory. These strips may report an inaccurately low INR result.
Alere INRatio PT/INR Test Strip (PN 100071), for self-testing, is not affected by this recall.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “we are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning INR Professional Test Strips and inform the public. For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”
As the Agency advises “Healthcare professionals should immediately STOP using the Alere INRatio2 PT/INR Professional Test Strips and use an alternative method to perform PT/INR testing, such as a plasma-based laboratory INR test, an alternative Alere product, or an alternative point-of-care monitoring system from a different manufacturer.”
