Heparin Contaminant Identified

The FDA announced Wednesday that it had identified the contaminant in Baxter heparin that has been linked to at least 21 deaths. The contaminant is a chemically altered form of the dietary supplement chondroitin sulfate, designed to mimic the active ingredient in heparin.
