San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on Cubicin (daptomycin for injection).
Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced on August 9, the recall of nine lots of Cubicin (daptomycin for injection) 500 mg in 10 mL Single Use Vials due to the presence of particulate matter. Cubicin is used intravenously to treat skin infections and certain blood stream infections.
The reason for the recall is the potential presence of glass particulate matter in vials. If administered, this product may cause a thromboembolism or a life-threatening pulmonary emboli. Moreover, it can cause activation of platelets, subsequent generation of microthrombi, phlebitis, or mechanical block of the capillaries or arterioles. Increased risk exists for patients with a preexisting condition of trauma or other medical condition that adversely affects the microvascular blood supply.
The affected lot numbers are CDC203, CDC207, CDC213, CDC217, CDC226, CDC234, CDC235, CDC243, and CDC246.
