A non-linear backward equation with diffusive terms is postulated for the probability density that depends on the Bohmian quantum potential. An associated nonlinear Schr\"{o}dinger equation is also introduced and extension of the analysis to several particle compounds is sketched along with the implications following from this formalism regarding the non-conservation of probability in the non-equilibrium regime. Some further conclusions are educed with respect to the generalized optical theorem.
