Products in this table are listed by labeling change date in descending order and fell within the scope of the Pediatric Rule, the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA), and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA), and contain new pediatric information. All other labeling changes are based on information from clinical trials in pediatric patients. This list only serves to highlight key information affecting the pediatric population at the time the particular application was approved resulting from the studies performed for the Pediatric Rule, BPCA and PREA.
