Pediatric Clinical Drug Development December 2010

Course Description

Fueled by the encouragement from regulatory agencies in the United States and Europe, the art and science of pediatric drug development has evolved rapidly in pharmaceutical companies over the last few years.  Due to recent governmental initiatives such as the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) in the US and Pediatric Investigation Plans (PIPs) in Europe, pharmaceutical companies have been given clear pathways and incentives to develop drug indications and products for this important group of patients.  The web seminar will examine these regulatory initiatives and discuss practical and effective development approaches and study designs.
