Terbutaline Pump News!
Just as we went to press, the Network learned that the FDA has ruled favorably on our terbutaline pump petition. The FDA agreed with our assessment of the science and has said explicitly that the terbutaline pump is potentially dangerous and has not been shown to work. The FDA is sending letters to practitioners, home health care companies and insurers alerting them to the status of the terbutaline pump. The FDA is also investigating the promotional activities of companies which provide terbutaline pumps.
Watch for our next issue for more information on the FDA's decision and any impact it will have on the lawsuit.
For more information, or copies of the FDA decision, call Cindy Pearson.
