I was just wondering:
Everyone knows that there have been significant problems with quality control in the manufacture of heparin, especially in foreign plants (be certain: there have been problems in the past with US manufacture as well).
I am the only person who wonders whether the epidemic of HIT for the past decade or so might be in part a consequence of lax quality control in the manufacture of heparin? Will it subside with additional scrutiny of its' manufacturing?
Almost certainly not.
