There has been yet another medical scandal in China.

An alarming story came to light today when the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration released a statement (in Chinese) announcing an immediate recall of a batch of blood plasma from Shanghai Xinxing Medicine Company due to some of it testing positive for HIV antibodies.

For its part, the NHC, citing experts, noted the risk of HIV infection is very low for those who received the treatment.

A batch of blood plasma in China used for transfusion has reportedly been infected with HIV.

It asked medical institutions to halt the use of the batch and seal remaining supplies for further investigation. Just $5 a month.

The batch of intravenous immunoglobulin was produced by Shanghai Xinxing Pharmaceutical Co.

Established in 2000, Shanghai Xinxing is a biotech company specialising in the production and sale of blood-based medical products, according to its official website.

China has struggled in the past with the spread of HIV due mainly to infected blood transfusions, according to the BBC, but recent reports show that the number of people in the country contracting the virus in this way has dropped almost to zero.

According to the notice, the disease control center in Jiangxi Province first detected HIV antibodies from the batch of plasma product and reported that to the National Health Commission.

Public faith in China's health regulators has been shaken by previous scandals. Wu, one of four CFDA officials being investigated, was in charge of China's vaccine regulation at the time.

Recently, more than 100 children were administered expired polio vaccines.

The ABC approached the China Meheco Group and various government bodies for clarification but was not able to receive a response - most government offices and companies are now closed in China due to Lunar New Year public holiday.

He told the paper that patients treated with faulty blood plasma may not necessarily be infected with HIV, because there was an anti-virus treatment in the preparation process. Ltd., the country's second-largest blood product manufacturer.

A study of 280,000 villagers in Henan who had sold their blood found that more than 36,000, about one in eight, had HIV or Aids. "Yet the people responsible for it have never been brought to account, nor have they uttered a single word of apology".

"This was a man-made catastrophe".
