FDA’s Division of Pediatrics and Maternal Health (DPMH) in collaboration with the Division of Anesthesiology, Addition Medicine, and Pain Medicine (DAAP) and the University of Maryland CERSI, are announcing a 2-day public workshop, “Analgesic Clinical Trial Designs, Extrapolation, and Endpoints in Patients from Birth to Less Than Two Years of Age”. The purpose of the public workshop is to discuss the current state of therapies to treat acute pain in children, identify data gaps, and consider methods to improve the current drug development paradigm for acute pain in patients less than 2 years of age (e.g., use of pediatric extrapolation, and novel clinical trial designs). The workshop is intended to focus on drugs with well-established mechanisms of action (NSAIDs, acetaminophen, local anesthetics, opioids), rather than drugs with novel mechanisms of action.
The public workshop will be held on:
Date: October 13 and 14, 2021
The public workshop will be held in virtual format only. Please note that due to the impact of this COVID-19 pandemic, all meeting participants will be joining this public meeting via an online teleconferencing platform.
