The National Library of Medicine Division of Specialized Information Services (SIS) has released an Enviro-Health Links page on Developing and Using Medicines for Children.
In regards to medications, it is important to remember that children are not small adults. Developing and Using Medicines for Children provides links to resources that can help researchers, medical professionals and parents provide effective medicines and administer them safely. The links include information about pediatric drug development, clinical trials, and existing laws and regulations.
NLM also offers other Enviro-Health Links on topics, including:
