What Is Paediatric Drug Development Training?

This course is ideal for you if you need to be on top of the new EU paediatric drug development regulations that came into force in January 2007. It covers not only the regulations but also the medical and scientific background, enabling delegates to gain an all round understanding of this critical area. By the end of the course delegates will be able to understand the regulatory requirements introduced in the new regulations, together with the associated commercial incentives. Assess which products are affected and when. Appreciate the ethical issues involved. Take a science-based approach to compiling a Paediatric Investigation Plan. Evaluate formulations for use in children. Understand the complementary roles of PK, PD, safety and efficacy data. Plan the timing of paediatric development on the basis of ethical and scientific principles together with the concept of deferment.
