Follow up to the Letter from AABB Bacterial Contamination Standard Task Force to Gambro BCT and Fenwal in Response to the Discontinuation of the Passport Study – 2/13/08

Dear Dr. Vostal,


In previous communication to PASSPORT study sponsors (dated January 31, 2008) that was shared with your office the data from PASSPORT cited is as yet unvalidated by the study sponsors and should not have been quoted.  I apologize for this error, and look forward to the opportunity to review updated data when it has been validated.
