Abstract

Germovsek and colleagues have recently concluded that a standard approach to modelling pharmacokinetics is not wrong and appears to be at least as useful as other ad hoc methods for describing drug concentrations. There are other advantages of this approach including learning about biology, comparing different studies, detecting errors and rationalizing dose prediction. A standard approach to size and maturation is not a panacea but provides the framework for challenging new ideas and supports a consistent method of dosing in patients of all ages.
