A woman in her 60s died last month after injecting home-use medicine dispensed at Kyoto University Hospital that was 738 times stronger than a normal dosage, the university said on Tuesday.

According to the hospital in Kyoto’s Sakyo Ward, the woman complained of a sore back on the night of Sept. 26 after taking the medicine intravenously at home. She was treated at the university hospital the next morning but died.
