Fever, with hypotension in some, developed during or soon after infusion and persisted for several hours. Laboratory abnormalities including leukocytosis and elevation of liver enzymes and creatine phosphokinase in serum were observed for two or three days. Contamination of the drug with endotoxins was identified.
