10th Pediatric Clinical Trials

Closing the Gap Between Regulatory Requirements, Study Development, and Execution of Trials

11-12 Jun 2014
The Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, United States of America

Why You Should Attend

10th Pediatric Clinical Trials

The 10th Pediatric Clinical Trials Conference will provide executives with successful tools and best practices to effectively submit a PIP that meets FDA and EMA regulations, leverage clinical pharmacology data into data used in a pediatric clinical trial design, utilize unique recruitment tactics to improve participation and retention in clinical trials, and expedite drug development for the pediatric population.

Since 70% of all medications and treatments prescribed to children have never been trialed on children, it is crucial to improve this ratio to ensure pediatrics is a top priority for pharmaceutical companies.

Delegates get to experience a two day conference consisting of 16 highly interactive conference sessions, 10-15 minutes of Q&A time after each presentation and 4+ hours of networking with individuals involved in pediatric pharmacology, pediatric clinical trial design, patient recruitment, pediatric drug development and other similar facets in the pharmaceutical industry.

Key Topics

  • Ensure compliance with FDA & EMA when submitting a Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP)
  • Utilize clinical pharmacology as a benchmarking tool to model adult data to pediatrics
  • Develop Pediatric Study Plans (PSPs) for specific therapeutic areas
  • Use the Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) to determine quality of life measures while ensuring patient safety
  • Create a Pediatric Center of Excellence to demonstrate the significance of the pediatric portfolio to the organization’s bottom line
