SCHNEIDERMAN GOES AFTER TURING — Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has decided to look into Turing Pharmaceuticals, the company that increased the price of a 62-year-old infection drug from $13.50 per tablet to $750, according to The New York Times. “The attorney general’s office is looking not so much at the price increase itself but at whether Turing may have violated antitrust rules by restricting distribution of the drug, Daraprim, as a way to thwart generic competition, according to a letter sent by the attorney general’s office to Turing on Monday," the Times reported. Last Thursday, POLITICO New York asked the Attorney General if he intended to look into the company, and Schneiderman, at the time, was non-committal, saying he was on top of the situation but the federal government was ultimately responsible. http://nyti.ms/1K5zIja
NOW WE KNOW — Your bath towel is gross and should be washed at least twice a week, according to Philip Tierno, a microbiologist and pathologist at the New York University School of Medicine, who spoke to Tech Insider. “The moment you use it, it becomes a breeding ground of bacteria; fungi; dead skin cells; salivary, anal, and urinary secretions; and many other germs lingering in your bathroom that may have hopped onto your towel — including droplets from your toilet.” (Full Disclosure: I do not wash my bath towel twice a week, and don’t even ask about my bathrobe.) http://bit.ly/1ZvgbUK

EFFECTS OF DRUGS — The Conference of Blue Cross and Blue Shields today will release its latest infographic showing the effects of price increases for specialty drugs. The insurer wants to make the case that these price hikes are why consumers are paying more for their insurance. Though specialty drugs make up only 1 percent of the market, they account for one-third of all spending, up from 25 percent in 2012. Pharmaceutical companies insist these prices help pay for innovation, research and development.

-A NEW SYNDROME? — A Weill Cornell Medicine professor, writing in Annals of Internal Medicine, argues that age-associated financial vulnerability, or AAFV, should be considered a clinical condition. AAFV, according to Dr. Mark Lachs, The Irene F. and I. Roy Psaty Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, is defined as imprudent financial decision-making that begins at a late age and puts older adults at risk for material losses. “AAFV is a public health crisis,” Lachs said. “We’ve all encountered patients who seem to be cognitively normal and have normal neuropsychological testing but continue to make very poor and unsound financial decisions.”
