Focused on pediatric physiology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, this book illustrates the differences between the pediatric population and adults; knowledge of extreme importance not only during pediatric drug development but also in the clinical practice. Physicians, nurses, clinical pharmacologists, researchers and healthcare professionals will find this an invaluable resource.

With the advent of pediatric exclusivity, and requirements to conduct clinical studies in children, an emphasis has been placed on finding a safe and efficacious dose of a drug in children. Children are not `small adults', and drug dosing in this population requires special consideration. There are subtle physiological and biochemical differences among neonates, infants, children, adolescents and adults and dosing in pediatrics requires proper understanding of these factors. Furthermore, dosing in children, as in adults, should be based on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data. This is an evolving area, as pediatric pharmacokinetic studies are becoming mandatory for getting approval of new drugs in this population.

"The purpose is to review the evolution of pediatric research as it relates to pediatric drug dosing, an extremely worthy goal. ... This book will meet the needs of these readers, particularly those interested in conducting research in children and students and clinicians who want to obtain a more in-depth understanding of dosing medications in pediatric patients. ... I am unaware of another book on this subject, particularly for individuals involved in developing and conducting research in this patient population." (Ina Lee Calligaro, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
