Warning letter for Palm Beach Fertility Center in Florida
The FDA inspected Dr. Mark S. Denker Palm Beach Fertility Center in Florida and found significant deviations from the regulations for human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products. The problems the agency reported include not verifying if the donors have any risk factors for infectious diseases, not keeping records of the donors’ medical records for infectious diseases and not communicating positive cytomegalovirus (CMV) test results to physicians. The agency also alleges that the facility didn’t follow the regulations for labeling their human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/Ps). It also took issue with the facility’s response to an earlier FDA inspection.
The FDA provided specific concerns and comments on the establishment’s responses to the observations. The list included ensuring the facility uses a revised screening questionnaire and fixing deficiencies in donor eligibility records. The establishment also must improve its procedures for releasing HCT/Ps from donors with reactive specimen tests for CMV.
