Abstract:

In April 1997, Working Group 26 undertook to facilitate international collaboration in determining the suitability of medications for use by military aviators. The group is focusing on two areas 1 current knowledge and experience in use of medications by military aviators, and 2 means of international collaboration on the study of new medications for use by military aviators. To simplify the task, while still including the vast majority of drugs used in aviators, the group discussion decided to focus on eight disease categories Hypertension, Malaria Prophylaxis, Asthma, Allergic Rhinitis, Allergic Dermatitis, Other Manifestations of Allergy, Hyperlipidaemia and Disorders of the Digestive System. Furthermore it was decided to see which drugs for operational use were thought to be important.
