Name:NCRAF: Update on Pediatrics in US, Europe, Japan, China, and ICH
Date:April 18, 2019
Time:5:30 PM - 7:30 PM EDT
What are the current pediatric requirements and incentives for new products in four major markets: US, Europe, Japan, and China?
In the US, PREA requires the submission of a Pediatric Study Plan (PSP) and BPCA provides for certain incentives for pediatric drug development. Under FDARA 2017, oncology products with orphan drug designation are no longer exempt from PREA. How will FDA implement the Molecular Targets List?
In EU, Regulation No. 1901/2006 requires the submission of a Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) and provides for certain incentives for pediatric drug development. EMA has recently re-assessed the impact of the pediatric requirements, following 10 years of implementation and a stakeholder workshop in March 2018. What are the findings and expected actions?
In Japan, there is no requirement to study a new drug in pediatric patients; however, there are incentives for conducting pediatric studies. Are changes likely from PMDA?
In China, NMPA is dramatically changing many previous regulations and requirements but pediatric studies are not required for new drugs. What new flexibilities can provide incentives for the registration of new drugs for pediatrics in China?
In addition, ICH is preparing a new guideline, ICH E11A: Pediatric Extrapolation. How is extrapolation different in pediatrics vs adults?
Participants are invited to share their recent learnings in pediatric drug development along with the speaker.
