Was this compounding pharmacy specializing in preservative-free injectables?
That is my understanding
Mine, as well. However, that was only mentioned in passing in the first article I saw on the incident. After that, it was omitted, including the last ProMed posting I saw. Now, I am reading about greedy independent compounders who have put others out of business by providing products demanded by patients (and therefore by their physicians) and who must receive more regulation.
Had these injectables contained ingredients normally present in the products available from the large, extremely regulated pharmaceutical manufacturers, would that have protected them from Aspergillus contamination?
I like compounding pharmacists. I had a dog who would not take doxycycline in any form until my vet worked with a compounder to create a liquid formulation very high in chicken flavor. It was obscenely expensive, but it saved my dog from Lymes.
