Pharmacy board adopts new rules

Specialty pharmacies similar to the Framingham compounding company linked to the ­national fungal meningitis outbreak will be required to report to the state the volume of medications they are making and whether they have detected contamination in their laboratories, under emergency state regulations adopted Thursday.

Later in the day, federal regulators said they found contamination in two more New England Compounding Center ­products — preservative-free ­betamethasone, a steroid used to ease back pain, and cardioplegia solution, a medication used in heart surgery.
