Safety Efforts in Pediatric Drug Development (Hardcover, New): Conor D. Byrne Safety Efforts in Pediatric Drug Development (Hardcover, New)

This book focuses on the safety efforts being implemented in paediatric drug development. Although children suffer from many of the same diseases as adults and are often treated with the same drugs, only about one-third of the drugs that are prescribed for children have been studied and labelled for paediatric use. This has placed children taking drugs for which there have not been adequate paediatric drug studies at risk of being exposed to ineffective treatment or receiving incorrect dosing. In order to encourage the study of more drugs for paediatric use, Congress passed the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) in 2002 to provide marketing incentives to drug manufacturers for conducting paediatric drug studies. Drug manufacturers may obtain six months of additional market exclusivity for drugs on which they have conducted paediatric studies in accordance with pertinent law and regulations. This book also evaluates the impact of BPCA on labelling drugs for paediatric use and the process by which the labelling was changed, and illustrates the range of diseases treated by the drugs studied under BPCA. Additionally this book provides guidance on the role and timing of animal studies in the non-clinical safety evaluation of therapeutics intended for the treatment of paediatric patients. The guidance discusses some conditions under which juvenile animals can be meaningful predictors of toxicity in paediatric patients and makes recommendations on non-clinical testing. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.

Before Conflict - Preventing Aggressive Behavior (Paperback): John D. Byrnes Before Conflict - Preventing Aggressive Behavior (Paperback)

In Before Conflict: Preventing Aggressive Behavior, John Byrnes gets to the heart of the concept of aggression prevention. Rather than look strictly at violence and all its implications_fatalities, crime, and assault_Byrnes instead chooses to look ahead, in order to prevent violence rather than simply to act in reaction to it. By using a unique methodology of 'Aggression Management, ' those responsible for the safety of others may circumvent the standard practice of mere 'conflict resolution' by dealing with the problem before it creates conflict. Because everyone experiences and manages anger differently, 'Aggression Management' teaches readers not only how to measure their own aggression, but that of others as well. The result empowers the reader to stop problems before they even develop. This book is recommended for anyone responsible for the safety of others, especially people who work in the fields of education, health care and social services, law enforcement, the retail food service industry, and the U.S. Postal Service
