First published in 1979, this work is a useful text for all who prescribe or monitor the effects of drug therapy on the foetus, neonate, infant, child or adolescent. The new, thoroughly referenced edition extensively updates the 12 chapters of the 3rd edition and adds a chapter each on paediatric pharmacogenetics and paediatric chemotherapy. The editors retained a multidisciplinary Paediatric Advisory Committee to ensure accuracy, timeliness and comprehensiveness.
