The challenge

Gaining approval for a new medicine for use in a paediatric environment is a challenging endeavor: How to conduct the right paediatric trials, labelling, dosage, managing the ethical landscape, as well the stringent regulatory landscape, coupled with balancing the cost effectiveness of such programmes. Ensuring you have an effective paediatric plan (or waiver) in place is crucial to allowing an MAA to be submitted in Europe and increases the chance of establishing a robust, feasible clinical plan and obtaining a paediatric indication.
