Schmidt & Clark, LLP: FDA Reports Show Abbott Labs Subsidiary Failed to Disclose Parasite Eye Infections Tied to Contact Lens Solution
Date:6/22/2009

WASHINGTON, June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Washington, D.C.-based law firm of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, is announcing the results of an inspection conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration where investigators determined that a subsidiary of Abbott Park, Ill.-based Abbott Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: ABT) failed to disclose multiple reports of a serious parasitic eye infection for more than a year.

In an Associated Press story reported June 20, 2009, Schmidt & Clark Managing Partner Michael Schmidt says the documents reveal the link between Acanthamoeba Keratitis and a popular contact lens solution sold by Irvine, Calif.-based Abbott Medical Optics ("AMO"), an Abbott Labs subsidiary.

"It confirms our suspicion that AMO knew, or should have known, that there was a significant increase in Acanthamoeba Keratitis cases associated with Complete MoisturePlus," Mr. Schmidt says in the article.

According to the report obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, inspectors from the FDA discovered that AMO failed to disclose at least nine reported cases of the sight-threatening eye infection Acanthamoeba Keratitis among users of the company's Complete MoisturePlus contact lens solution.

According to the FDA report, AMO began receiving complaints of serious corneal infections in February 2006, but those reports were not disclosed until an FDA inspection in late May and early June 2007. The Centers for Disease Control launched its own investigation aft
