Smith Kline Beecham

Apr 19, 1999

I heard on the radio today that a Smith Kline Beecham lab in Palo Alto, CA was re-using needles for drawing blood. Now, they are calling people in to get tested for Hep and HIV. I cannot beleive this! Is this still happening? This is enough to drive an HIV-paranoid person (like myself) crazy! Have you heard about this?

Response from Dr. Holodniy
