The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are investigating a pharmacy in Massachusetts which compounds Avastin, a drug sometimes used in ophthalmology to slow down the progression of wet age related macular degeneration. That particular pharmacy may have distributed contaminated medication.
Dr. Sean. F. Murphy, MD of The Eye Care Institute does perform Avastin injections on many of our macular degeneration patients. We obtain our Avastin from American Excellence Pharmacy of Melbourne Florida. We have no association now, nor have we ever received Avastin from, the pharmacy currently under investigation.
Always feel free to ask us about any medical concerns you have. Call our office, or if you are already a patient being treated by Dr Murphy please feel free to email him by clicking on this link.
