Prednisone solution USP (5mg/5mL), is the most commonly prescribed formulation of prednisone to pediatric and adult patients. The rationale for this study is that palatability is the most important determinant of pediatric patient compliance, and therefore, it is critical that the Orbis formulation be perceived as significantly more palatable compared to today's commercially available products in order to warrant further development of the TP.
