I-ACT for Children hosted its 1st annual Pediatric Research Innovation Forum on Oct. 15-16, 2019, which focused on the inclusion of adolescents in adult clinical trials. The goal of the meeting was to drive innovation in this area by bringing key stakeholders together to agree on what’s known, identify continuing challenges and propose solutions to address those challenges.
There was robust engagement throughout the meeting and participation from multiple stakeholder groups – including leading scientific researchers, FDA representatives, patient advocates and pharma company research leaders. The meeting drew high-level participants from across the United States as well as from Spain, England, Canada and Germany.
I-ACT for Children now will work with meeting participants to develop a recommendations document for publication and dissemination, which will be informed by the Working Group sessions held during the meeting.
