Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The current list of medicines in Section 6.1.1 was endorsed. The Subcommittee noted spontaneous reports of choking in association with the use of chewable formulations of albendazole, which highlighted that priority should be given to the development of dispersible tablet forms for children. A full review of this area is required for the next meeting.
