The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public meeting entitled “Pediatric Stakeholder Meeting.”

Some of the issues to be discussed at the meeting will include, but not be limited to:

  • Hearing from patients/parents and patient/parent groups, industry, academia and other stakeholders about the public health impact that pediatric legislation may have had on them or their communities;
  • Understanding the effects of the requirement of pediatric studies under PREA or the incentives under BPCA on drug/biologic development plans; and
  • Understanding if there are any barriers or resource issues preventing undertaking or completing studies under PREA and BPCA.
