Background information on regulations and labeling requirements for each type of product is provided, and 77 articles critically review human and animal data pertinent to a variety of agents and makes judgments regarding the clinical relevance. The book also identifies at-risk populations, such as neonates, patients with renal failure, and atopic patients.

Editorial Reviews

Of the more than 8,000 food, drug, and cosmetic excipients available, detailed information is presented on 77 of the most clinically important ingredients, beginning with acacia and ending with urocanic acid. The intention is not to provide a complete listing of all products containing a particular excipient, but to provide an extensive listing of those products most likely to be encountered, as a starting place for investigation of the potential etiology of a suspected excipient-related problem in a given patient.
