Are You Prepared for the Complexity of Pediatric Drug Development?The numerous controls and processes in place to ensure a medication is safe, effective, and manufactured with the utmost efficiency make drug development extremely complicated.

Pediatric drug development requires a formulation designed to fit the specific needs of that patient population. Not considering these requirements early enough could add significant delays and costs to the development process.
