NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Three Tennessee clinics have received subpoenas for documents related to drugs from a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy linked to a fungal meningitis outbreak last year.

The subpoenas were sent to St. Thomas Outpatient Neurological Center in Nashville, Specialty Surgery Center in Crossville and the PCA Pain Care Center in Oak Ridge. They were issued by attorneys representing patients in a consolidated federal lawsuit against New England Compounding Pharmacy Inc. in Framingham, Massachusetts.

The attorneys are asking the clinics to produce records between the clinics and the pharmacy, including purchases, quantities, pricing and dates, involving methylprednisolone acetate, as well as other compounded medicines produced by the pharmacy.

The fungal meningitis outbreak killed 58 people and sickened more than 740 others.
