There is little published evidence for many extemporaneous medicines; this is particularly the case for medicines for children. In pediatrics there is a great need to use extemporaneous products since few licensed products are suitable for pediatric patients. Apoteket Production & Laboratories at Apoteket AB has started a project to alleviate this.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
