Essentials of Translational Pediatric Drug Development: From Past Needs to Future Opportunities provides integrated and up-to-date insights relevant for both translational researchers and clinicians active in the field of pediatric drug development. The book covers all key aspects from different stakeholder perspectives, providing a literature overview and careful reflection on state-of-the-art approaches. It will be an ideal guide for researchers in the field who are designing and performing high quality, innovative pediatric-adapted drug development by helping them define needs/challenges and possible solutions that advance and harmonize pediatric drug development.

Despite the broad consensus that children merit the same quality of drug treatment as any other age group, children remain frequently neglected during drug research and development. Even with the adoption of multiple legislations addressing this problem, the lack of efficacy and safety data of marketed as well as newly developed drugs still remain in the pediatric population.
