Since 2010, Quintiles has provided clinical studies for >460 pediatric studies, involving >190,000 patients in 110 countries worldwide.

Specialized regulatory expertise

Pediatric clinical trials require a team that understands the inherent challenges of working with this special patient population. The FDA and EMA require evidence of pediatric safety and efficacy, placing additional pressures on drug development programs and requiring a partner skilled at addressing these regulatory obligations. By understanding regulatory expectations and planning ahead to meet them, you can be more certain that your drugs will be delivered to children in need as quickly as possible, as safely as possible. Additionally, you may be able to benefit from exclusivity incentives.

Extensive expertise in pediatric therapies

Quintiles has helped develop pediatric products or compounds across a wide variety of therapeutic areas through all phases of clinical development. We can provide insight and resources to help you not only meet regulatory requirements, but also execute pediatric clinical trials with confidence.
