Abstract

Poster session - Paediatric cystic fibrosis and liver patients can be prescribed a number of different pharmaceutical preparations, often in liquid form - It is not uncommon for alcohol to be present in liquid preparations, often as a solvent - Although the quantity of alcohol present can be low, patients taking a number of alcohol-containing preparations may be at risk of toxicity - It has been found that only a few of the preparations used for both paediatric cystic fibrosis and liver patients contain alcohol - The quantity of alcohol present in these preparations is low and should not cause toxicity, even when the products are used in combination
