  Not Another Typical Drug Company Lawsuit   
Monopolizing pain relief by expanding the opioid market? A tale of gross deception.
By Editorial Staff
A new lawsuit brought forth by the California counties of Orange and Santa Clara is directed at nine manufacturers of opioids. One of the attributes that makes this lawsuit so interesting is the detail regarding the well-crafted facade allegedly designed by the defendants. According to the lawsuit, this two-decade facade effectively "(1) misrepresented the efficacy of opioids, (2) trivialized or obscured their serious risks and adverse outcomes, and (3) overstated their superiority, compared with other treatments."

The underlying causes of knee pain and dysfunction are rarely isolated to the knee. The knee is a relatively stable joint with limited intrinsic ability to adapt to aberrant motion. Usually when there is a problem with the knee, it originates in the foot / ankle complex or the hip region. The foot and the hip have the ability to adapt and accommodate to changes in gait, terrain and directional forces much better than the knee.

In a world becoming increasingly dominated by connected devices, when we think of marketing, we often think of online and social media marketing. Considerable attention is given to Facebook and Twitter, as well as CPC [cost-per-click] advertising.

Primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) is a slowly progressive, adult degenerative disease of the upper motor neurons characterized by progressive spasticity or stiffness. It is a clinical diagnosis that has been avoided because it is (largely) a diagnosis of exclusion. A conservative estimate is that no more than 500 people with PLS currently are living in the United States.
