Dr. Prausnitz has testified in numerous Duragesic fentanyl patch lawsuits, including this case, which ended in a $16 million dollar verdict for the plaintiff.
Lots of good information in this deposition about the defects in the Duragesic patch design, and the dangers of fentanyl and fentanyl gel.
THE VIDEOGRAPHER: On the record.
MARK R. PRAUSNITZ, Ph.D., having been first duly sworn, was examined and testified as follows:
BY MR. NAEEM:
Q. Good morning, sir.
A. Good morning.
Q. Could you please state your name for the record.
A. My name is Mark Prausnitz.
Q. Dr. Prausnitz, this is the second time we've met. I was here late last year, and we deposed you in a case called Burchill. We talked briefly off the record. I've gone through some of the materials you brought with you. We've talked about what you may refer to; and, as I mentioned before we went on the record, I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time going over material that's already been covered with you, but we may touch on some of that material. Okay?
