Developing formulations for pediatric patients poses unique challenges. The specific needs of children, which vary by age, mean the task goes beyond scaling down the dose of the adult formulation. Strength, dosage form, and choice of excipients need consideration in light of the target population’s requirements and preferences to ensure the product is safe, effective and usable, meaning developers need a specific skill set that is distinct from the capabilities required to create treatments for adults.
