FDA Announces an Analgesic Clinical Trial Designs, Extrapolation, and Endpoints in Patients from Birth to Less Than Two Years of Age Public Workshop on October 13-14, 2021

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Division of Pediatrics and Maternal Health (DPMH) in collaboration with the Division of Anesthesiology, Addiction Medicine, and Pain Medicine (DAAP) and the University of Maryland CERSI, is announcing a 2-day public workshop, “Analgesic Clinical Trial Designs, Extrapolation, and Endpoints in Patients from Birth to Less Than Two Years of Age” on October 13-14, 2021. The purpose of the public workshop is to discuss the current state of therapies to treat acute pain in children, identify data gaps, and consider methods to improve the current drug development paradigm for acute pain in patients less than 2 years of age (e.g., use of pediatric extrapolation, and novel clinical trial designs). The workshop is intended to focus on drugs with well-established mechanisms of action (NSAIDs, acetaminophen, local anesthetics, and opioids).
