Recorded on June 23, 2020

Healthcare providers and regulators have placed increasing impor­tance on the inclusion of more pediatric focused formulations for new and current products on the markets and this has ushered in strong regulatory requirements regarding pediatric product safety, product usability and the reduction of dosing risk. As the regulatory requirements become more complex the industry has seen a rise in applicable tools to assist manufacturers in the re-formulation and development of child safe product variations; however, CMC teams must remain current on the data and justifications that must be submitted for regulatory approval of new treatments.
