CTTI Shares Challenges and Solutions to Enrolling Participants in Pediatric Trials at AAP 2017

At the upcoming American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference, CTTI will offer insights into some of the biggest challenges currently affecting pediatric clinical trial enrollment and conduct. Through a podium presentation and poster sessions, CTTI will share survey-based findings that shed new light on obstacles affecting pediatric trials and discuss possible solutions that can help streamline these studies and reduce burdens on patients, families, and providers.

 

Although clinical trials are essential for ensuring access to safe and effective therapies for children, many studies struggle to enroll pediatric participants and families and providers often lack information to help them make the best possible treatment choices. This problem is especially acute for children and infants at risk of harm from bacterial infections, many of which are increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment. For this reason, maintaining a strong pipeline of safe and effective therapies is an urgent priority.

 

CTTI’s Peds Trials project, part of the larger Antibacterial Drug Development Program, is actively addressing these gaps and has created evidence-based recommendations designed to improve and streamline pediatric trial development and conduct. We hope you will join us in Chicago this Sept. 16-19 as we share new insights into challenges affecting pediatric trial enrollment, including reasons that parents refuse trials and provider perceptions of obstacles.
