Baxter Healthcare has announced that a processing fluid used in the manufacture of some of its Althane A and AF series dialysers are the "probable cause" of the growing number of suspicious deaths of haemodialysis patients around the world. The findings appear to be confirmed by a report on the first clusters of deaths in Spain. The theory has gained further weight from US Federal Drugs Administration views that there is a growing body of evidence that directly implicates Baxter.
