11 YEARS LATER: THE WORSENING OPIOID EPIDEMIC

TASA ID: 13340

Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing (PROP) is currently providing input to the U.S. Dept. of HHS to preserve the 2016 CDC Opioid Prescribing Guideline which is under some threat from the influence of the opioid pharmaceutical industry and some members of the pain community. This could also have positive implications for future legal cases for victims of opioid over-prescribing, especially in regard to the continued profit-driven malfeasance of these two sectors which have been largely responsible for the creation of the opioid epidemic.

A Case of Abrupt Onset Sexual Predatory Behavior with Minors

TASA ID: 1650

In legal cases involving the apparent abrupt onset of illegal sexual behavior with minors, prosecutors and defense attorneys should be alert to the possibility of behavior-variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTLD) as a causation factor in young adults where there is no prior history. While the signs and symptoms of this brain dysfunction are generally seen in individuals age 50 and older, they can occasionally appear as early as age 20. The relevant signs of bvFLTD are...
