Correction of valganciclovir information in BNF for Children
The valganciclovir drug monograph in BNF for Children has incorrectly included the following equivalence statement since the monograph was added for the July 2018 monthly digital update and the print edition BNF for Children 2018-2019.
Dose equivalence and conversion
Oral valganciclovir 900 mg twice daily is equivalent to intravenous ganciclovir 5 mg/kg twice daily.
This statement applies to dosing in adults only.
It will be removed from digital versions of BNF for Children for the August 2021 monthly update and the forthcoming print edition BNF for Children 2021-2022.
