Paediatric drug use with focus on off-label prescriptions at Swedish hospitals - a nationwide study
Acta Pediatrica, 04/30/2012
Kimland E et al. – Paediatric off–label drug use is common at Swedish hospitals, and nearly half of all prescriptions were not documented for use in children. The findings emphasize a need for paediatric clinical studies as well as compilation of existing clinical experience and scattered evidence, particularly for drug treatment in infants and neonates.
