In an article recently published in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Disease Society (JPIDS), CTTI researchers lay out a roadmap for addressing an urgent public health issue: pediatric antibacterial drug development.
Antibacterial drugs are critically important for treating infectious diseases, but growing rates of antimicrobial resistance have made the development of new antibacterial therapies a priority for researchers and physicians. The problem is especially acute in pediatrics, because even when new drugs are developed for adults, it may be up to 10 years...

CTTI, which recently published a set of recommendations and resources for developing and incorporating novel technology-derived endpoints into clinical research as part of its larger Mobile Clinical Trials (MCT) Program , will lead a breakout session focusing on findings from this project and what they mean for...
A CTTI article outlining a framework for successful clinical trial recruitment planning was recently published in Contemporary Clinical Trials .
While patient recruitment is widely recognized as a key determinant of success for clinical trials, a substantial number of trials still fail to reach their recruitment goals. To address this issue, CTTI convened a project team to examine the challenges and develop actionable, evidence-based recommendations for improving recruitment planning.
These recommendations propose an upstream approach to recruitment planning,...
