Abstract

In a modern world, what is the best way to deliver medicines to the patient? Human beings are an extremely diverse species with many different factors that can influence the behaviour of a drug within the body. Children are a perfect example of such variety. Doses are often prescribed based on body weight, and can vary greatly from infants to adolescents. With current ‘traditional’ manufacture of oral dose pharmaceuticals, generally only a limited number of doses are produced, leading to difficulties with appropriate dosing. The ability to manufacture personalised doses for these patients would be of great benefit both practically and financially, and may even lead to ‘point of care’ manufacture.
