The European Medicines Agency plays an important role in the development of medicines for children. In the past, many medicines authorized in Europe were not studied adequately or authorized in children. This caused difficulties for prescribers and pharmacists treating children, as well as for their patients and careers.
To help to solve this problem, the European Union's Paediatric Regulation gave the EMA new responsibilities in 2007. These responsibilities allowed the EMA to stimulate research into the uses of medicines in children and to lead to their authorization in all ages. The Paediatric Regulation's main aim is to improve the health of children in Europe without subjecting children to unnecessary clinical trial directive, or delaying the authorisation of medicinal products for use in adults.
Why Should You Attend:
Orphan medicinal products are intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of life-threatening or very serious conditions that affect no more than 5 in 10,000 people in the European Union.
Designation as an orphan medicinal product in the EU directive clinical trials have important advantages. Sponsors who obtain orphan designation benefit from a number of incentives, including protocol assistance, a type of scientific advice specific for designated orphan medicines, fee waivers or reductions for the regulatory procedures or a 10 year market exclusivity once the medicine is on the market. Therefore, it is important for companies to know the process for designation.
