PedCRIN is launching a webinar series to share some of the most interesting outcomes of the project. The series will be completed by the PedCRIN Final Meeting that will be held on June 16, 2021.
The webinars will be the opportunity to discover more about the tools developed through PedCRIN for the setup and management of paediatric and neonatal clinical trials.
Fondazione Gianni Benzi has been involved in the development and adaptation of these tools aimed to speed up and facilitate the execution of clinical trials for neonates, children and young people.
Managing paediatric clinical trials is a challenging endeavour due to the intrinsic characteristics of the paediatric population including the limited number of eligible patients, the differences in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics between children and adults and also among children of different ages as well as the need for implementing ad hoc study procedures and the ethical considerations.
The first webinar will be held on April 7, 2021 at 1:00PM CEST and will be dedicated to the tools for managing paediatric trials. The speakers are Viviana Giannuzzi from Fondazione per la Ricerca Farmacologica Gianni Benzi Onlus and Cristina Manfredi from Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche.
