Additional Information

Dr. Remington Nevin is a Vermont-based physician epidemiologist and expert consultant in the adverse effects of antimalarial drugs, including mefloquine, tafenoquine, chloroquine, and hydroxychloroquine. Dr. Nevin has been invited to testify before the U.S. Senate, the Australian Senate, the U.K. Parliament, and the Canadian Parliament, and has provided evidence to the Irish Department of Defence. Dr. Nevin’s work has been instrumental in improving policymakers’ understanding of the potential for long-lasting and permanent neurologic and psychiatric effects from quinoline antimalarials. Dr. Nevin's work has also contributed directly to militaries in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Ireland discontinuing their decades-long policies of first-line use of mefloquine, in favor of safer and better-tolerated alternatives. Dr. Nevin was first to publish a clinical description of quinism, the permanent disorder of brain and brainstem dysfunction caused by the use of mefloquine and related quinoline drugs. Dr. Nevin has also collaborated on the first review of mefloquine’s adverse effects published in the forensic psychiatry literature, and published the first case report of a U.S. military veteran awarded service-related disability compensation for long-lasting adverse psychiatric effects from the drug. Dr. Nevin is available to provide international attorney medicolegal consultation and to provide expert witness assistance at deposition or trial. Dr. Nevin has significant experience consulting on civil and criminal cases and has successfully aided attorney clients in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the European Union in reaching favorable settlements. Dr. Nevin is also pleased to offer his services in preparing nexus letters and independent medical opinion reports for veterans seeking disability compensation for injuries and illnesses arising from mefloquine and other antimalarial exposure during military service.
