FDA clears Yulex glove
The Food and Drug Administration has cleared for marketing the first device made from a new form of natural rubber latex, guayule latex. The product, the Yulex Patient Examination Glove, is derived from the guayule bush. The product is expected to benefit healthcare workers with latex allergies. Because there is no data on people¹s long-term experience with the Yulex glove, the product will at least temporarily carry a warning about the potential for allergic reactions. The Yulex glove is made by the Yulex Corporation of Maricopa, AZ.
