Accelerating Paediatric Formulation Development – SPaeDD project meeting in London


The meeting aims to provide an update on Contemporary Paediatrics and to present the outputs of the SPaeDD-UK Project.

Co-funded by Innovate UK (the UK’s Innovation Agency, the Smart Paediatric Drug Development (SPaeDD) initiative is a cross company and academic centre initiative to accelerate paediatric formulation development.  It was established in 2014, it focussed on UK expertise and it has been an excellent example of multi-company/academic collaboration. The collaboration has now reached the end of its funding period and this meeting will present the final outputs from the project work streams. Each of these has produced outputs which have the potential to assist the way in which medicines are developed and tested for children.

The meeting will deal with the following topics:

  • Current EMA paediatric regulations
  • The requirements for paediatric formulations from an industry and hospital practitioner’s perspectives
  • How to perform in-vitro taste testing of paediatric medicines
  • The use of PBPK modelling applied to paediatrics
  • Novel paediatric formulations
  • Ways in which the acceptability of formulations can be tested in paediatrics
  • Exploitation of the output from SPaeDD
