Reports of deaths linked to blood-thinner heparin triple

Chicago Tribune, April 9, 2008
The number of reports of deaths linked to all versions of the blood thinner heparin have tripled, according to a report released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA said there are now 62 reports of deaths of patients who experienced one or more allergic reactions and who were infused with heparin from Jan. 1, 2007 through the end of last March 2008. That compares to just 19 deaths from an earlier FDA report.
