CitationA DOSE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE? DRUG TESTING ON CHILDREN AND LABELING DRUGS FOR PEDIATRIC USE--ESSENTIAL NEEDS (1997 Third Year Paper)
AbstractChildren are not just miniature adults; a child metabolizes and absorbs drugs differently than adults, making drug testing and labeling regarding pediatric use essential. This paper first addresses these needs in more detail. The histories of drug testing on children and labeling drugs for pediatric use are next addressed. Then this paper considers the current conditions of, and regulations on, drug testing and pediatric labeling. Finally, an analysis of what needs to be done to make drugs more safe and effective for use in children is given.
