  6. 6. ACMT Pre-Meeting Symposium Monday • October 1, 2012 Vanity and Vice: Toxicology in the Sin City This symposium will begin by examining the toxicologic underpinnings of various methods to look younger, last longer, and get stronger. The primary focus will be on the basic science behind these “therapies” and the evidence supporting potential approaches to treatment. The second half of the symposium will delve into debauchery - the sordid world of gambling addiction, celebrity drug abuse, addiction and detoxification, as well as the benefits and risks of public health measures to ameliorate the epidemic of opioid overdose. Objectives At the end of the Pre-Meeting Symposium, the learner will be able to: 1. Review the epidemiology of systemic disease associated with breast implants. 2. Distinguish between local complications and systemic disease associated with breast implants. 3. Describe the history of tumescently administered lidocaine. 4. Discuss how the pharmacology of tumescent lidocaine differs from other routes of delivery and the potential toxicological consequences. 5. Discuss the diversion of research grade Botulinum toxin, the mechanism of toxicity and management of BoTox overdose. 6. Discuss the risks and controversies surrounding the injection of silicone, Non Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid (NASHA), calcium hydroxyl apatite, polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA), and other foreign substances for cosmetic purposes. 7. Describe mechanisms of toxicity from anabolic/androgenic steroid abuse. 8. Discuss other novel compounds that may be abused as anabolic agents, including pathophysiology and review of existing scientific evidence. 9. Explain the mechanisms behind the most common sexual performance enhancers. 10. Assess the most appropriate management approach for sexual performance enhancer toxicity based upon the mechanism of drug action. 11. Review the psychosocial complexities associated with celebrity drug abuse and poisoning. 12. Discuss the literature surrounding highly publicized celebrity poisonings as it pertains to the practice of medical toxicology. 13. Review the pathophysiology of gambling addiction, including the role of dopamine agonism in inducing impulse control disorders. 14. Review the mechanism of and scientific evidence to support pharmacological treatment options for gambling addiction. 15. Review the pharmacologic treatment of substance abuse. 16. Describe the neurobiological mechanism of drug addiction. 17. Discuss recent proposed legislation aimed at preventing morbidity from opiate overdose, and whether this will likely worsen or improve the epidemic of prescription opioid abuse. 18. List the arguments for and against public health measures such as use of naloxone by non-medical personnel and supervised injection sites. Moderators:  Diane P.
