• WS1: Pharmaceutical Excipients

    The main task of this work group is to develop STEP (Safety and Toxicity of Excipients for Paediatrics) database.  The aim is to create an evidence-based database of pharmaceutical excipients, addressing safety issues and toxicity aspects in medicines for children. This database should act as a single repository and provide easy access to important information from key resources. The database will be available online and so will lead to a global approach to paediatric formulation development, and ultimately highlight gaps in excipient knowledge.
