Drug Formulary Review;Jan2008, Vol. 24 Issue 1, p8
The article reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has asked Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corp. for the suspension of the marketing of Trasylol®, a drug for controlling bleeding during heart surgery. The FDA claims that its move is in line with the interest of public safety since preliminary results from a Canadian study suggests that Trasylol® may contribute to an increased risk of death. FDA also announced that it was working Bayer for the phaseout of the drug in order to prevent shortages of other drugs used for that purpose.
