We are very grateful to our keynote speaker, Christina Bucci-Rechtweg, Head of Maternal & Paediatric Regulatory Policy from Novartis, for taking time out to give us her views on the biggest challenge for paediatric drug development, opportunity for global harmonisation of paediatric clinical trial regulation and lessons learned from the FDASIA case study.

“A more cohesive international regulatory collaboration would be expected to lead to minimization of duplicative or unnecessary studies and foster innovation in both the technical and clinical development realms to address the unmet medical needs of children”

Christina will be joined at the event by Novartis Global Scientific Affairs Senior Expert, David McIntosh, who will be presenting on vaccine trials verses antibiotic trials. When asked about his upcoming presentation, David commented:

“The talk on Vaccine Trials Versus Antibiotic Trials will discuss the pros and cons of prevention versus cure, providing examples of the role of vaccines in decreasing antibiotic resistance. Key randomised controlled vaccine trials will be discussed and contrasted with key antibiotic trials – the risk of failure will also be highlighted.”
