Healthcare providers prescribe one or more medications to many nursing mothers during breastfeeding. The lack of information on the potential effects these drugs might have on the nursing infant results in many mothers either discontinuing breastfeeding or avoiding these needed medications.
In this webinar, Jeremiah Momper, Pharm.D., Ph.D., and Philip Anderson, Pharm.D., will address the following:
- Mechanisms of drug passage into breastmilk
- Three types of breastmilk drug excretion studies outlined in the most recent draft guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- Model-based approaches to predict infant drug exposure during nursing
Dr. Momper is an associate professor in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He specializes in maternal and pediatric clinical pharmacology.
Dr. Anderson is a health sciences clinical professor of pharmacy at UCSD who has lectured and published extensively on drug use during breastfeeding. He founded LactMed®, the National Library of Medicine database on drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed, and continues to write all LactMed® records and to expand the database.
