Description:
Paediatric legislation implementing a system of obligations and rewards has led to a significant increase in paediatric studies. Whilst studies conducted are multinational, regional regulatory objectives may not serve global research needs. This session will utilise a series of cases which highlight the global nature of paediatric drug development.
