  • (1888PressRelease) October 28, 2015 - Many treatments of today are the result of past clinical trials. The need for improving strategies in conducting paediatric clinical trials has never been greater as pharmaceutical industries want to expand their research even if researchers and scientists cannot always afford the costs linked to trials in children. Conducting a successful paediatric clinical trial can produce clinical, operational, ethical, and legal challenges worldwide.

    This event will look at the paediatric therapeutic developments, directives and procedures which have been put in place to protect children taking part in clinical trials.
