Advancing the Development of Pediatric Therapeutics (ADEPT): Pediatric Bone Health.

Unfortunately, due to the extraordinary weather circumstances in the DC metropolitan area the ADEPT workshop scheduled for Tuesday, March 4, 2014 in Bethesda, MD, is postponed indefinitely.

The current weather forecast calls for snow continuing through this afternoon followed by extremely cold temperatures. Travel to and from the Washington, DC metropolitan area today and tomorrow morning is likely to be difficult and unsafe.

We hope to have this important workshop rescheduled in the near future.

Pediatric and Maternal Health Staff in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research and the Office of Pediatric Therapeutics are announcing a 1-day public workshop entitled “Advancing the Development of Pediatric Therapeutics (ADEPT): Pediatric Bone Health.” The purpose of this initial workshop is to provide a forum to consider issues related to advancing pediatric regulatory science in the evaluation of bone health in pediatric patients.
