A JOINT POLICY STATEMENT BY THE EAP AND THE ESDPPP ON OFF-LABEL USE OF MEDICINES IN NEONATES, INFANTS, CHILDREN, AND ADOLESCENTS WAS PUBLISHED EARLIER THIS YEAR

 

The availability of medicines with an appropriate label for pediatric use is lagging behind those for adults, and even available pediatric drugs are sometimes not suitable to administer to children. Consequently, health-care professionals often have no other option than to prescribe off-label medicines to children. However, off-label use of medicines is in general not supported by the same level of evidence as medicines licensed for pediatric use.
