Compounding Pharmacy Co-Founder to Be Sentenced for Deadly Meningitis Outbreak

The co-founder of a Massachusetts-based compounding pharmacy linked to a nationwide meningitis outbreak is set to be sentenced Monday in federal court in Boston.

Barry Cadden was acquitted of second-degree murder charges under federal racketeering law, but convicted on conspiracy and fraud charges. Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 35 years in prison, the Associated Press reported.

The 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that killed more than 60 people and sickened hundreds more was traced to contaminated injections of medical steroids made by the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass., the news service said.

Prosecutors said Cadden ignored industry regulations on sterility to increase production and make more money, the AP reported.
