Pediatric Pharmacology Europe

Utilizing Advanced Methodologies & Technology to Improve Drug Development for Children

Date: September 13-14, 2010
Location: Hotel Bloom, Brussels, Belgium

NextLevel Pharma's focused and interactive event will concentrate on the importance of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies to answer questions regarding the ways by which children metabolize drugs differently. It will explore not only the best use of modelling and simulations, but also possible extrapolations from existing data, means to assess optimal drug dosage levels, and measurements of drug effects on child physiology, using minimal samples and subjects to optimise the design of studies for pediatric treatments. Experienced industry pharmacologists and pediatricians will join us to discuss recent developments and assess how to better understand optimum drug formulation and dosage, as well as how to understand drug interactions.

Why Attend?

  • Hear fresh perspectives from experienced pharmaceutical companies who have designed successful PK/PD pediatric studies.
  • Learn what place PK/PD studies have in the development of pediatric drugs and how they can be used more effectively to determine dosages, measure efficacy and demonstrate value to the pediatric world.
  • Hear case study presentations from industry leaders on how to adapt methods used from adult to children.
  • Discover what approaches are best to predict dosage, utilize existing adult data, and understand the interactions between drug and child.

Speakers at the conference in Brussels include representatives from Johnson & Johnson Belgium, Boehringer Ingelheim Germany, Paul Ehrlich Institute, Novo Nordisk Denmark, UCB Pharma Belgium, Roche Switzerland, Promethera Biosciences, POP-PHARM USA, and more.
