On Monday, August 8, 2016, the FDA hosted a webinar to share information and answer questions about its final guidance: Leveraging Existing Clinical Data for Extrapolation to Pediatric Uses of Medical Devices. This final guidance, issued on June 21, provides a framework to consider extrapolating existing data to evaluate a device’s performance in pediatric patients in pre-market approval applications (PMAs), humanitarian device exemptions (HDEs) and de novo requests. It also facilitates continued efforts to address unmet medical device needs for pediatric patients.
- explains the conditions in which FDA believes it may be appropriate to leverage existing clinical data to support pediatric device indications and labeling;
- outlines the approach FDA uses to determine whether extrapolation is appropriate and to what extent; and
- describes statistical methodology that can be used to leverage data for pediatric implications.
FDA discussed this final guidance document at a webinar scheduled for August 8, 2016. The webinar is intended to help manufacturers and other interested stakeholders understand the information provided in this final guidance document.
Following a brief presentation, the FDA responded to questions regarding this guidance document.
