The EuPFI devices workstream have designed a short questionnaire to understand what devices you or your child use and how easy they are to handle, to help to find ways of making the devices more user friendly. As part of our mission to improve the preparation of better and safer medicines for children, we are interested in is the “gadgets” or devices (e.g.

The steady growth in importance of paediatric drug development has made it our mission to share expertise and interactive discussion between industry,
The pharmaceutical excipients working group aims to address safety issues and problems associated with the excipients likely to be used in paediatric formulations. The group is intended to drive forward the development of the methodological approaches for conducting a high-level scientific literature review to retrieve and evaluate the safety and toxicity information of excipients for children. The group will determine a prioritization process for selected excipients based on: the strength of the literature evidence;
In September 2014, the European Paediatric Formulation initiative (EuPFI) will convene its 6th annual conference Formulating Better medicines for Children in Athens, September 17th -18th 2014 in partnership with APV (International Association of Pharmaceutical Technology).
Over the past few years the responsibility of the scientific community to develop and exploit existing,
Need of STEP database
Nearly all medicines are formulated with excipients that have been used for many years and are generally regarded as safe (GRAS). They are defined in monographs in the various pharmacopoeias and released on certificates of analysis against monograph specifications, using monograph test methods. However, these monographs are usually intended to cover use in adults and some excipients are less well tolerated in children,
