Biomedical Tissue Services Overview

 

Biomedical Tissue Services, a New Jersey tissue bank, tampered with tissue transplants.

In March 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified healthcare professionals that the company, Biomedical Tissue Services (BTS) of Ft. Lee, New Jersey, may not have properly screened donors for infectious diseases for bone, skin, and tendon tissues which were transplanted in patients requiring implants.

 

When reality TV becomes too real: Instead of receiving life-saving tissue transplants, patients received contaminated tissues acquired illegally from corpses where the deceased victim's families had no idea about the cadaver theft. What could be more evil?


Where is the dignity for preserving healthy tissue transplants by not using stolen body parts?

Based on an ongoing investigation, the FDA has been advised of additional information regarding the reliability of donor blood samples which are an important consideration for healthcare providers. The FDA strongly recommends that healthcare providers inform patients who received tissue implants from Biomedical Tissue Services that they may have an increased risk of communicable disease transmission and should be tested for infectious diseases by the hospitals. The FDA believes the risks from these tissues implants are low because the tissues were routinely processed using methods to help reduce the risk of infectious disease, however, the actual infectious risk is unknown.

The number of patients who were implanted with Biomedical Tissue Services is unknown.
Biomedical Tissue Services' tissue was distributed by Regeneration Technologies, LifeCell Corporation, and Tutogen Medical Inc. Medtronic also used Biomedical Tissue Services tissue.


On January 31, 2006, the FDA issued an Order to Cease Manufacturing and to Retain Human Cells, Tissues and Cellular and Tissue Based Products (HCT/Ps) to Biomedical Tissue Services. The order was issued after the FDA uncovered serious violations of the frequently unregulated regulations governing donor screening and record keeping practices.

Despite records maintaining otherwise, Biomedical Tissue Services had inadequately screened donors for risk factors for communicable diseases. Additionally, the FDA found many instances where death certificates maintained by Biomedical Tissue Services and through research conducted by the FDA varied. Besides being grisly and distasteful, some of the stolen body parts came from elderly people and possibly even victims of infectious or terminal diseases. The paperwork was doctored to say that the donors were younger and in good health. Important information such as cause, place of death, time of death, and the identity of the next of kin conflicted. Therefore, the donor screening performed cannot be relied on to exclude donors with risk factors for or clinical evidence of infectious diseases.

FDA regulations require that, before tissues are released for distribution, blood samples from each donor be provided to the testing laboratory for donor testing. Each sample must be clearly linked to an individual donor, and each tissue clearly linked to that donor. In some instances, blood samples did not come from the same donor as the linked tissues. Therefore, the results of communicable disease tests obtained from the blood sample may not correctly reflect the status of the donor.
