Congress set to investigate fungal meningitis outbreak

Two congressional oversight committees began to investigate the recent fungal meningitis outbreak starting on Wednesday, November 14. The House Energy and Commerce Committee and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee heard testimony relating to the outbreak from various experts.

Lawmakers say their intent is to find out why the manufacturer of the contaminated steroids which caused the outbreak, a Massachusetts corporation called the New England Compounding Center, was allowed to continue operating after federal officials found problems at their facility.

So far, over 400 cases of fungal meningitis have been linked to contaminated steroid shots manufactured by the New England Compounding Center. Twenty-three (23) of those cases are in Florida, and most of those are in Marion County (Ocala). Experts have warned that while the number of linked fungal meningitis cases being reported have declined, another wave of cases may crop up in the near future. It is estimated that up to 14,000 patients nationwide may have received injections of the contaminated methylprednisolone acetate during the course of medical treatment.
