    NIOSH recently issued an alert (.pdf file) updating its list of hazardous drugs present in health care settings.

    Hazardous drugs include those used for cancer chemotherapy, antiviral drugs, hormones and some bioengineered drugs, according to the alert. The 21 drugs added to the list are new or existing drugs that had new warnings between 2004 and 2007. NIOSH recommends following a standard-precautions approach when handling hazardous drugs.
