A useless tidbit of information.  In the early days of IV injections,
it was noted that temperature increases, fever,  were experienced by
the patient soon after dosing.  Later it was discovered that
gram-negative endotoxin caused this "injection fever".  This resulted
in the FDA requirement for pyrogen free medical devices, a 20EU/device
limit.
