Insufficient Data on Children’s Medicine

A new Swedish medical study claims that 2 out of 3 medicines for children lack the proper documentation and have not been tested on young patients.

This leaves doctors in this Nordic nation without the correct printed information found in many other countries to help them make the right decisions.

The report concludes that doctors here have extensive experience in treating children – but are years behind other colleagues elsewhere in the knowledge of special medical risks dealing with youngsters.
