Medicines for Children

A symposium organised by the Academy of Medical Sciences Forum and sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline

There is a widespread concern about the limited evidence available for both
efficacy and safety of many medicines used in children. The reasons are
complex. Children only rarely develop serious illnesses. This makes
recruitment for clinical trials difficult and provides little incentive for
manufacturers to develop special formulations of their products. When
children do fall ill doctors often have to prescribe adult formulations that
may be unsuitable and doses that have not been validated in that age group.
This symposium brings together leading experts from academia, the health
service, industry and regulatory bodies to review the current situation and
to discuss ways and means of bringing about improvements.
