The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or the Agency) is announcing a public workshop to discuss the present state of understanding of pediatric ontogeny as it pertains to pediatric drug development. The workshop aims to address the incomplete information available on the ontogeny of several relevant physiologic systems in pediatric patients as it relates to predicting drug dosing and response in this population. These considerations are of most importance to the youngest pediatric patients, where model-informed drug development has the most potential to expedite pediatric drug development using techniques such as physiologically-based pharmacokinetics (PBPK).
