If you are involved with the healthcare system, you know that drug-induced injury cases are as complex as they are common. While the injury to the patient might seem obvious, in reality that has very little effect on the course that the litigation will take. This makes it especially important to accurately evaluate the case. You'll want to be sure that the case you take on has merit and will prove economically sound for both you and your client. To successfully accomplish this, you need the knowledge of the pharmaceutical and drug manufacturing industry that the authors have carefully detailed in this book.Easy for the non-medical professional to follow, the book is divided into four useful sections. Part I deals with the pharmaceutical process, covering the liability of pharmaceutical companies, warning labels and clinical trials. Part II examines high-risk drug therapies that result in pharmaceutical litigation. You'll read about important litigation regarding drugs like Prozac, Accutane and Rezulin, as well as anabolic steroids, insulin and oral diabetic drugs, and more. Whether or not your case involves the drug cited you'll find that the theories applicable to one pharmaceutical case are often applicable to another. Part III looks at the professional pharmacist and malpractice claims. Finally, Part IV covers forensic and toxicological issues, particularly recreational drugs, drug testing, and pain equipotency.You'll find this text indispensable for the comprehensive information it provides for all those affiliated with the pharmaceutical industry.This third edition includes brand new chapters on: * The Pharmaceutical Revolution: Drug Discovery and Development * Counterfeit Drugs * General Principles of Pharmacology * Search and Analysis of the Food and Drug Administration's Adverse Event Reporting System * Liability, Litigation, and Lessons in New Drug Development * Anticoagulants: Therapeutics, Risks, and Toxicity-Special Focus on Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia * Dangers of Opioids * Acute Adverse Drug Events in Critical Care: Emergency Department and Intensive Care Units * HIV Pharmacotherapy and Its Complications * Fetal Drug Exposure * Nonscientific Uses and Illegal Marketing of Drugs and Dietary Supplements * Regulation of Pharmacy Practice * Pharmacist Malpractice and Liability * After-Hours Pharmacy Services, Medication Use and Safety in U.S. Hospitals * Postmortem Redistribution and Interpretation of Drug Levels

For all who have found the Bible difficult to read and science hard to understand, this author did too! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone would take the time to study things such as difficult verses? Also, would it be helpful if somebody wrote it in a book? Have we really found real truth to Noah’s flood? Does anyone know the physics that could cause such a global occurrence? Someone has now researched for most of a lifetime, plus three extra years of intensive study. The answers are not always easy, the solutions not always simple. Modern Science finds more evidence almost daily that there once was a flood of such proportions. Author, Harris F. Allen has spent countless hours attempting to answer his own questions. He has a few tools including much science and Bible in his college studies. Always an active overachiever, Allen has become deaf and partially disabled. That left far more time and greater opportunity than he could ever imagine. Having a history of regular church attendance from his early youth, the author received a reasonable background, but always had some unanswered questions. So, in pharmacy school in a Baptist college, he excelled in New and Old Testament studies. Chemistry and science of various sorts were the main topics of study, and by adding Bible, that is an ideal mix for this discussion. Allen will present his findings from both a scientific view and a Biblical understanding. He will explain what he found about difficult verses and some parts of the Bible that seem at times to be in conflict. He will also discuss the physics, biochemistry and other dynamics that could be involved in such a worldwide flood. Regardless of science or Biblical belief, the flood did occur at about the time the Bible said it did.
