Paediatric Drug Handling

First edition

Ian Costello, Paul Long, Ian K Wong, Catherine Tuleu and Vincent Yeung - Centre for Paediatric Pharmacy Research, The School of Pharmacy, University of London, UK

Written for new pharmaceutical scientists, Paediatric Drug Handling provides a background in paediatric pharmacy and a comprehensive introduction to children's medication.

Children form a large percentage of the patient population, but few medicines have been designed and tested specifically for paediatric use.

This important textbook covers:
  • pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs and formulations in children of different ages
  • pharmacogenomics
  • medication errors in paediatric practice
  • the formulation of established, new and orphan drugs for use in paediatric practice
  • the regulatory processes for paediatric medicines throughout the world
  • the ethics of clinical trials in children and trial design in the case of rare diseases where patient numbers will be limited.

Written by international experts in the field, this introductory text is an excellent resource for postgraduate students in the pharmaceutical sciences.
