    Anthony R. Scialli, MD
    Reproduction, the most important process in nature, is the result of a superbly coordinated series of events. The modern era has seen the introduction of chemical and physical agents that can disrupt these events and impair normal reproduction. This book satisfies the clinician's need to understand toxicology and its effect on human reproduction by explaining the lingo of the bench researcher and teaching the clinician how to use basic research in practice.
    By Anthony R. Scialli, MD
    One of the most popular areas in toxicology is environmental toxicology and its effects on human fertility. Designed as a clinical reference, this book focuses on both the mechanisms of reproductive failure (male and female) and the clinical techniques for assessing and monitoring the effects of various toxicants on the reproductive process. Section I provides a basic overview of the toxicologic effects of various agents on male and female reproductive physiology and the process of conception. Section II builds on this background and covers the mechanisms of toxicant action, describing the ways in which normal reproduction may become deranged.

    Pharmacologic and Toxicologic Principles. Reproductive Medicine Series
    Anthony R. Scialli, MD
    Based on the proceedings of a conference held at Georgetown University. Provides expert guidance on assessing the clinical significance--whether transient and adaptive, or irreversible and pathological--of changes in the quality and quantity of sperm production after environmental chemical exposure. Presents EPA procedures and policies to estimate risk of injury to the male reproductive system, value of testicular and sperm profiles in optimizing reproductive success: lessons from selective breeding programs of domestic and laboratory animals, effects of radiation therapy and chemotherapy on testicular function, and calculation of incidence of infertility in human populations from sperm measures using the two-distribution model.

    James M. Wheeler, MD, MPH, JD, magna cum laude in Biology / Psychology from Harvard, is an OB/GYN trained at Baylor, with subspecialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology / Infertility at Yale. He is also a graduate of the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at Yale, focusing upon clinical epidemiology and biostatistics and health policy. He also earned his MPH at Yale majoring in Biostatistics, minoring in Maternal/Child Health. He graduated from the University of Houston Law Center with a JD in 2005, and was invited to join the Health Law division there. He has completed ADR training, having completed training programs separately in mediation, and arbitration.

    Dr. Wheeler is a former national officer of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and served on several of their health policy committees including the Health Care Commission and the Hysterectomy Committee. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers on a wide array of topics in ob/gyn, with a particular emphasis on methodology. He has given over 200 invited lectures to ob/gyns, reproductive endocrinologists, radiologists, midwives, nurses, surgical technologists, law students et al. He sees himself first and foremost as a caregiver, and second to only that, as a teacher.

    Dr. Wheeler has consulted in several hundred medicolegal matters for over 20 years, mostly in ob/gyn, but including family practice, internal medicine and several of its subspecialties, general surgery and several of its subspecialties, and dermatology. He has been a testifying expert before the FDA for drugs and devices, and has testified before U.S. Congressional staffers on health policy issues. He reviews for attorneys from both plaintiff and defense bars, as well as insurance companies (e.g. Pro-Assurance), and health plans (e.g. Harvard Community Health Plan). He has helped with Board of Medicine reviews, and constructing/defending class action suits. The combination of his training in medicine, basic and clinical research, clinical epidemiology, biostatistics and law make him a uniquely qualified person to review the complex issues of medicolegal cases.

    Dr. Wheeler is a qualified first-reviewer, and a convincing expert during testimony. He has never been excused from a case as insufficiently expert. He is committed to helping serve people, as a physician, as a reviewer and commentator, and certainly within their legal rights.

  • A malpractice action requires the plaintiff to prove: (1) the defendant caregiver owed a duty of care to the plaintiff-patient, (2) the caregiver departed from that standard of care, and (3) that departure from the standard of care actually caused the injury claimed by the plaintiff. "Causation" 11; often the critical component in a malpractice action because the presence of a duty is often obvious, except perhaps in "Good Samaritan" cases, but the statutorily-required expert witnesses will argue about whether the caregiver departed from some standard of care. Because defining "causation" is difficult, there are interesting distinctions in legal versus medical, sociological, or philosophical concepts of cause-and-effect. Applying this difficult concept of "causation" to the very complex world of labor and delivery (L&D) does indeed beg the question, just how can causation be established?
