The article discusses several studies towards evidence based medicine for pediatricians.

Avoidance of breast feeding is considered to be not an effective intervention for preventing mother to infant transmission of hepatitis C virus. Influenza vaccination is found to be safe in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
