The cropped screenshot of the first page of the article. It also includes the URL or link to the article.

Every month I try to read an open-access article. Then, I share the title and associated link with my followers. This is to encourage clinicians to read articles, stay up to date, and continue to grow.

The objective of this month’s paper is to evaluate “the dose-exposure and safety of nintedanib in children and adolescents with fibrosing ILD” (p2).

“ The results demonstrated that nintedanib had an acceptable safety profile in this patient population. “

 “..the pharmacokinetic data from the InPedILD trial show that the weight-based dosing regimen achieved exposure in paediatric patients that was comparable to that observed in adults treated with 150 mg twice daily, supporting the use of this dosing regimen in the paediatric population.”
