"As a developmental pediatrician who prescribes a significant amount of medication for a variety of developmental disorders, I find CAPN extremely useful for keeping up to date with the literature on medication studies. I can learn of new applications and preparations as well as possible side effects and drug interactions in a timely way and in a format that allows fast and efficient reading. I think that all pediatricians will find this a very valuable source of information."
