Pilot study on potential degradation of drug efficacy resulting from Antarctic storage, transport and field conditions / Melanie J. Priston, Iain C. Grant, J.M. Hughes, Peter T. Marquis.

Title: Pilot study on potential degradation of drug efficacy resulting from Antarctic storage, transport and field conditions / Melanie J. Priston, Iain C. Grant, J.M. Hughes, Peter T. Marquis.
Author(s): Priston, Melanie J.
Grant, Iain C.
Hughes, J. M.
Marquis, Peter T.
Date: 2005.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2005.), Vol. 64(2) (2005)
Abstract: Reports results of pilot study on eleven drugs commonly carried in British Antarctic Survey field medical boxes in order to determine whether drug degradation occurs during extended periods of storage at sub-zero temperatures. Except for hydrocortisone cream, all drugs tested were found to be stable after both freezing and freeze/thawing. Authors recommend that hydrocortisone cream and certain eye medications should not be stored in Field Medical Boxes subjected to freeze/thaw temperature ranges.
