The knowledge on pharmacotherapy in lactation that we obtain while training usually does not prepare us well for drug problems we might encounter in our everyday practice. We all know that most drugs transfer to milk. But we do not get the most vital piece of information – why is that? How is that? And is it really that important?
We will travel to prehistoric times, look at the breast tissue at many different angles, analyze the ways of cellular transport, discuss why it actually exists and what are the consequences. We will talk about the most crucial aspect of drug safety assessment – the dose. We will walk the path of a drug, tracking it way through the organism of the mother, the milk and the baby. (IBLCE Detailed Content outline topics: IV. Pharmacology and Toxicology – this talk was previously part of our 2022 conference, Connect • Nourish • Thrive.)
