Doses of nicotine and lung carcinogens delivered to cigarette smokers. (1/10)

BACKGROUND: Cigarette smoke yields of tar and nicotine obtained under the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)-specified machine-smoking protocol (35-mL puff volume drawn for 2 seconds once per minute) may not accurately reflect the delivery of toxins and carcinogens to the smoker. We conducted this study to obtain more realistic estimates of exposure to components of cigarette smoke that affect lung cancer risk. METHODS: We used a pressure transducer system to evaluate puffing characteristics for 133 smokers of cigarettes rated by the FTC at 1.2 mg of nicotine or less (56 smokers of low-yield cigarettes [+info)

Smoke yields of tobacco-specific nitrosamines in relation to FTC tar level and cigarette manufacturer: analysis of the Massachusetts Benchmark Study. (2/10)

OBJECTIVES: This research assessed the relationship between the deliveries of carcinogenic tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) "tar" ratings of US commercial cigarettes. METHODS: Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to assess the explanatory power of FTC tar, the particular manufacturer, and other cigarette characteristics to predict the yields of four TSNAs (N'-nitrosonornicotine [NNN], 4-(N-methyl-N-nitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone [NNK], N'-nitrosoanatabine [NAT], and N'-nitrosoanabasine [NAB]) in 26 US commercial brands tested in the 1999 Massachusetts Benchmark Study. RESULTS: When FTC tar alone was used to predict TSNA yield, the squared correlation coefficient (R(2)) was only 38% for NNN, 76% for NNK, 46% for NAT, and 49% for NAB. Inclusion of manufacturer-specific variables significantly (p < 0.001) increased the estimated R(2) for three of the four species of nitrosamine to: 78% for NNN, 88% for NNK, and 81% for NAT. Inclusion of other cigarette characteristics (filter type, paper permeability, tobacco weight, tip dilution) did not reduce the significance of the manufacturer-specific effects. Federal Trade Commission nicotine and carbon monoxide (CO) yields were no better at predicting TSNA levels. CONCLUSIONS: FTC ratings for tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide do not tell the entire story about the comparative yields of toxic agents in marketed cigarette brands. The significant manufacturer-specific effects suggest that proprietary blending and processing of tobacco matter as well. Public, brand-by-brand disclosure of the yields of TSNA and possibly other smoke constituents appears to be warranted.  (+info)

Relevance of federal antitrust statutes to clinical practice. (3/10)

With the advent of Medicare prospective payment systems, health care entities and physicians were forced to decrease expenses by sharing services and to increase revenue by attempting to jointly negotiate better reimbursement from third- party payers. Both activities have raised the specter of prosecution under antitrust laws that have been with us for more than a century but are poorly understood by practicing physicians. Recent monopolistic activities in the health care arena have prompted the Federal Trade Commission to file actions under specific acts of Congress, eg, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, Clayton Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, Robinson-Patman Act, and Celler-Kefauver Act. Inasmuch as it is likely that specialties such as vascular surgery as a business will undergo substantial transformation, physicians need to be aware of the severe civil and criminal sanctions imposed if they are found guilty; fines that are several times actual damages; activities that raise antitrust issues including utilization review, medical staff privileges for competing specialties, participating provider agreements, and predatory pricing; and affirmative defenses and relief available in terms of specific exemptions. As health care providers react, innovate, and adjust to stay solvent, their business strategies will surely continue to be scrutinized for antitrust behavior by federal and state officials. The physician must have a basic understanding of the groundrules that govern any contemplated business strategy so that common pitfalls may be averted.  (+info)

Long-term Medicaid excess payments from alleged price manipulation of generic lorazepam. (7/10)

BACKGROUND: Cost savings from the use of generic drugs versus brand-name drugs are well known. Both private and public prescription drug plans encourage the use of generic drugs through a variety of mechanisms. The magnitude of cost savings for a given generic drug is dependent on the degree to which the generic market is competitive. Should the competitive structure become compromised, higher prices and reduced cost savings may result. An alleged conspiracy between Mylan Laboratories and its active-ingredient suppliers in 1997 was associated with an increase in seller concentration in the generic lorazepam market. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) alleged that Mylan raised costs to consumers by $120 million because of price increases for generic lorazepam from March through December 1998 and for generic clorazepate from January through December 1998. In November 2002, a settlement with Mylan was approved by the FTC, and a federal district court required Mylan to pay $147 million, including $28.2 million to state agencies including Medicaid. OBJECTIVES: To (a) describe the seller concentration in the national Medicaid generic lorazepam market over a 19-year period from January 1991 through December 2009, (b) estimate the excess payments for generic lorazepam by Medicaid between 1998 and 2009, and (c) investigate potentially increased utilization and prices of 2 substitute pharmaceuticals: branded lorazepam (Ativan) and generic alprazolam (another widely used intermediate-acting benzodiazepine). METHODS: Using Medicaid State Drug Utilization Data from the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services, we calculated the 4-firm concentration ratio (CR(4)) and the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI) for the Medicaid generic lorazepam market, along with pre-rebate reimbursement for pharmacy claims, number of claims (utilization), and average pre-rebate reimbursement per claim (average "price") for generic lorazepam, from 1991 through 2009. Medicaid's excess payments were estimated under 2 different assumptions regarding what the average generic lorazepam price would have been in the absence of the alleged conspiracy. To find counterfactual prices, the average per-claim reimbursement for lorazepam for the 4 quarters prior to the alleged conspiracy, $6.80, was inflated using (a) the quarterly change in the average per-claim reimbursement for generic alprazolam and (b) the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all urban consumers, all goods. Potential impact of the alleged conspiracy on the branded lorazepam and generic alprazolam markets was investigated. RESULTS: The average pre-rebate reimbursements per claim for generic lorazepam were $10.25, $23.12, and $8.48 in 1991, 1998, and 2009, respectively. For the same 3 years, CR(4) = 52.80, 76.02, and 86.74, while HHI = 905.71, 2,166.25, and 2,233.36. Medicaid's excess payments from 1998-2009 were estimated at approximately $625-$657 million. The data also suggest the possibility of small impacts on the utilization of branded lorazepam and the price of generic alprazolam. CONCLUSIONS: Prior to the alleged conspiracy in 1997, average pre-rebate reimbursement per claim for generic lorazepam was declining, while seller concentration was rising. After a jump in average payment per claim in the years immediately following the alleged conspiracy, prices have gradually returned to their pre-1998 levels. However, the generic lorazepam market was more concentrated in 2009 than prior to the alleged conspiracy.  (+info)

Quality and provider choice: a multinomial logit-least-squares model with selectivity. (8/10)

A Federal Trade Commission survey of contact lens wearers is used to estimate a multinomial logit-least-squares model of the joint determination of provider choice and quality of care in the contact lens industry. The effect of personal and industry characteristics on a consumer's choice among three types of providers--opticians, ophthalmologists, and optometrists--is estimated via multinomial logit. The regression model of the quality of care has two features that distinguish it from previous work in the area. First, it uses an outcome rather than a structural or process measure of quality. Quality is measured as an index of the presence of seven potentially pathological eye conditions caused by poorly fitted lenses. Second, the model controls for possible selection bias that may arise from the fact that the sample observations on quality are generated by consumers' nonrandom choices of providers. The multinomial logit estimates of provider choice indicate that professional regulations limiting the commercial practices of optometrists shift demand for contact lens services away from optometrists toward ophthalmologists. Further, consumers are more likely to have their lenses fitted by opticians in states that require the licensing of opticians. The regression analysis of variations in quality across provider types shows a strong positive selection bias in the estimate of the quality of care received by consumers of ophthalmologists' services. Failure to control for this selection bias results in an overestimate of the quality of care provided by ophthalmologists.  (+info)

Syllabus Respondent organization of dentists in Indiana promulgated a policy requiring its members to withhold x rays from dental insurers in connection with evaluating patients claims for benefits. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a cease-and-desist order, ruling that the policy constituted an unfair method of competition in violation of § 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, since it amounted to a conspiratorial restraint of trade in violation of § 1 of the Sherman Act. The Court of Appeals vacated the FTCs order on the ground that it was not supported by substantial evidence, holding that the FTCs findings that respondents x-ray policy was anticompetitive were erroneous; that the findings were inadequate because of the FTCs failure to define the market in which respondent allegedly restrained competition and to establish that respondent had the power to restrain competition in that market; and that the FTC erred in not determining whether the alleged restraint on competition ...

Three-hospital Evanston Northwestern Healthcare denied allegations by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that its 2000 acquisition of Highland Park Hospital and the hospitals affiliated physician group was anti-competitive. In its first antitrust challenge to a hospital merger in six years, the FTC on Tuesday asked a court to order Evanston Northwestern to divest Highland Park and to refrain from setting prices for physicians not employed by the Evanston Northwestern faculty practice. Evanston Northwestern said it would fight the challenge. Responding to Modern Healthcares request for comment, David Loveland, senior vice-president of corporate relations at Evanston Northwestern, said the system controls 16% of the area market. "One reason we are so chagrined by the FTC action is that this is not a situation where we have dominant market clout," Mr. Loveland said.

The Illinois Supreme Court sent Price v. Philip Morris back to the lower court with instructions to dismiss the case. Michael Greve criticized the trial court decision in his monograph Harm-Less Lawsuits? The Illinois Supreme Court, in a 4-2 vote, held that the Federal Trade Commission, through the use of two consent orders, had specifically authorized tobacco companies to characterize their products as light or low tar and nicotine. It was thus improper to hold that manufacturers labeling of their products per FTC regulatory requirements was consumer fraud. Whether this decision will affect similar litigation in Massachusetts and Missouri is unclear.. The Court expressed grave reservations about the appropriateness of the class certification and the calculation of damages, but withheld decision on those issues as extraneous given the decision on the threshhold question that there was no consumer fraud. Justice Karmeiers concurrence (joined by Justice Fitzgerald) is devastating on ...

One of the things that nurse practitioners want to do across the county is to practice to the extent of their license. In many states this has become a reality, and in several other states this concept is not yet a reality.. This is not due to lack of evidence - the data is there (see Quality of Nurse Practitioner Practice). Its also not from lack of support from the Institute of Medicine to the Federal Trade Commission.. Missouri is one of the states that is facing challenges in health outcomes and access to care. Its also one of the states that currently has one of the most restrictive practice acts…but I understand it was not always this way (See The APRN White Paper for Missouri) and there was a time when both health outcomes and access were better than they are today.. AMNP recently released a fact list about NP practice in Missouri and HB 1866 which seeks to correct these disparities. The facts and points as well as calls to actions for both NPs and healthcare consumers is well ...
This story first appeared on the ProPublica website, where it was copublished with Wired. Jonathan Mayer had a hunch.. A gifted computer scientist, Mayer suspected that online advertisers might be getting around browser settings that are designed to block tracking devices known as cookies. If his instinct was right, advertisers were following people as they moved from one website to another even though their browsers were configured to prevent this sort of digital shadowing. Working long hours at his office, Mayer ran a series of clever tests in which he purchased ads that acted as sniffers for the sort of unauthorized cookies he was looking for. He hit the jackpot, unearthing one of the biggest privacy scandals of the past year: Google was secretly planting cookies on a vast number of iPhone browsers. Mayer thinks millions of iPhones were targeted by Google.. This is precisely the type of privacy violation the Federal Trade Commission aims to protect consumers from, and Google, which claims the ...

As I mentioned earlier, credit regulation varies hugely depending on the location of the MFI. For example, within the US one of the pieces of regulation that borrowers are protected by is the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission. This act requires that debt collectors treat you fairly and prohibits certain methods of debt collection. There is also bankruptcy law. Bridget, KF13 at ACCION Texas-Louisiana notes Im told that if a borrower files for bankruptcy, then ACCION cant even talk to them or theyre in violation.. There are also laws such as the one in Texas which makes it illegal to collect someones homestead from them. ACCION doesnt accept peoples homes as collateral in Louisiana either, even though they legally could. Theyve chosen not to risk putting someone out on the street.. Working within countries that do have regulated credit management certainly makes client protection easier, but a large proportion of MFIs are acting within ...

Shark cartilage is a dietary supplement made from the dried and powdered cartilage of a shark; that is, from the tough material that composes a sharks skeleton. Shark cartilage is marketed under a variety of brand names, including Carticin, Cartilade, or BeneFin, and is marketed explicitly or implicitly as a treatment or preventive for various illnesses, including cancer. There is no scientific evidence that shark cartilage is useful in treating or preventing cancer or other diseases. Controlled trials have shown no benefit to shark cartilage supplements, and shark cartilage contains potentially toxic compounds linked to Alzheimers disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. However, shark cartilage supplements are still marketed using the misconception that sharks do not get cancer, a myth that was as popularized by the 1992 book Sharks Dont Get Cancer. In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission has taken legal action against such fraudulent promoters. Tumors of many kinds, some ...

It is a great pleasure to be here to speak to you today about recent developments in the US economy. Id like to thank Professor Hannah Scobie and the European Economics and Financial Centre for organizing the seminar in this beautiful historic setting, and thank the Member of Parliament, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, for presiding over and sponsoring this meeting. The views I will express are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York or the Federal Reserve System. I have organized my talk into six observations about the U.S. economy.. First, in considering the nature of the recovery from the financial crisis and recession, which many call the Great Recession, it is important to take note of the severity of the downturn from which we are recovering. Even though the United States has experienced six consecutive quarters of positive growth of real gross domestic product (GDP) since the official end of the Great Recession, the level of output remains well ...

Most medical doctors are unfamiliar with chiropractic and the principles by which it works. Many are still operating under the policy perpetuated by the illegal boycott of chiropractors by the American Medical Association in the United States and the Australian Medical Association in Australia.. On September 25, 1987, a United States Federal judge ruled that the AMA had violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act, and that it had engaged in an unlawful conspiracy in restraint of trade to contain and eliminate the chiropractic profession. The judge issued a permanent injunction against the AMA under Section 16 of the Clayton Act to prevent such future behavior.. Fortunately, more and more enlightened medical doctors around the world see the value in chiropractic care.. ...

This study includes responses to a series of telephone surveys that probed public attitudes toward energy use and conservation in the United States. The data collection effort began in July 1974 and continued through April 1976 as an ongoing project of the United States Federal Energy Administration (now the Department of Energy). Every two weeks, independent samples of the population were interviewed by the Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, New Jersey, up to a total of 42 surveys containing information obtained from 23,426 respondents. The data were subsequently consolidated in a standard format, with an indication of the date of each survey to facilitate time-series analysis. Variables assessed respondents perceptions of the role of the federal government in energy policy, their knowledge and sources of information about energy, opinions of actual or potential government actions, and personal efforts to conserve energy. Questions were asked about driving habits, use of mass transit, ...
