Demonstrate greater safety and efficacy

Pediatric trials bring unique challenges. And enhanced scrutiny. The FDA and EMA are requiring more evidence of pediatric safety and efficacy, which can add new pressures to pediatric drug development. By understanding the stipulations and planning ahead to meet them, you can be more certain that your drugs will be delivered to children in need as quickly as possible.
