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: deals with the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs and formulations in children of different ages; has a timely discussion of pharmacogenomics; addresses the real problem of medication errors in paediatric practice; discusses the challenges in the formulation of established, new and orphan drugs for use in paediatric practice; includes a survey of the regulatory processes for paediatric medicines throughout the world; and, covers 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.
