AHFS Drug Information by American Society of Health-System PharmacistsWith this edition, AHFS Drug Information® (AHFS® DI™) marks 61 years of continuous publication as the premier evidence-based drug compendium. The mission of AHFS® DI™ is to provide an evidence-based foundation for safe and effective drug therapy. Widely trusted for its established record in refuting unfounded efficacy claims, its rigorous science-based editorial process, and its independence from the influence of pharmaceutical manufacturers, AHFS® DI™ has remained true to its mission since the first edition was published in 1959. This notable achievement of more than six decades of evidence-based medical publishing has gained AHFS® DI™ the unique distinction of being the longest published federally designated drug compendium issued by a scientific and professional society.
As such, AHFS® DI™ maintains a unique role in establishing medically accepted uses of drugs, both labeled and off-label, and advancing evidence-based clinical practice. In addition, unlike most compendia, recognition of the authority of AHFS® DI™ in establishing medically accepted uses of drugs extends far beyond just cancer uses to include the full spectrum of drug therapy.

Neonatal Formulary by Sean B. AinsworthNeonatal Formulary is a unique publication that provides comprehensive guidance on the safe use of all the drugs prescribed during pregnancy and commonly given to babies during labour, delivery, and the first year of life. This new edition provides improved and detailed coverage of the many drugs that are given to women during pregnancy and during lactation where the baby's welfare must be borne in mind as well as that of the mother. Thus the whole 'pregnancy through to parenthood' journey is treated as a continuous event with information about drug use and the effects of drugs at all stages of the development from fetus to infant. Containing far more detail than is available in the British National Formulary for Children and with a companion website featuring updates related to specific drugs and dosing, Neonatal Formulary is an essential guide for neonatologists, neonatal nurses, hospital pharmacists, obstetric staff, advanced nurse practitioners and for all health care professionals caring for pregnant women and their infants in the first year of life.
