Clinical Viewpoints Episode 1 Recap – Optimizing Pediatric Trials To Generate High-Quality Data

Signant Health has introduced a new video series, Clinical Viewpoints, aimed at providing valuable insights into optimizing clinical trials across various therapeutic areas. The series kick-started with an episode featuring Dr. Joan Busner, Signant’s Clinical Vice President and a pediatric and orphan diseases expert, and was hosted by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dawie Wessels. The duo delved into the unique challenges of pediatric trials, including the complexities of obtaining informed consent from children or their caregivers, collecting suitable clinical outcome assessments, and managing high placebo response rates.

The episode also underscored the necessity for heightened scrutiny in pediatric trials due to the vulnerability of the child patient population. Dr. Busner advocates for understandable measures, custom consent tools, and procedures tailored to the child's age and capabilities. She also emphasizes the need to make the child feel like a partner in the research, ensuring active family participation and quality data collection.
