Why are pediatric clinical studies important?

Pediatric clinical studies are necessary to help develop new medicines for children and adolescents. Clinical testing in children helps doctors:

  • Determine the appropriate medication dose for children to help prevent side effects
  • Find treatments for diseases that occur only in children
  • Discover therapies for diseases that act differently in adults and children
  • Identify techniques to improve children's overall health and well-being
