Our exerts are ready to support you in the preparation and submission of your Pediatric Investigation Plan

The EMA requires from applicants to exhibit a compliant Pediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) when applying for marketing approval of drugs that targets indications which are present in children.

PIP aims to justify a development program and ensure that all necessary data are obtained through studies in children, to support the authorization of a medicine intended for pediatric use. PIP has to be approved by the EMA Pediatric Committee (PDCO) or a waiver or deferral has to be granted. There are several conditions when PIP waiver can be granted: if medicines is ineffective or unsafe in part or all of the pediatric population, if medicine is intended to treat disease that only affect adult population or in case medicine does not represent a significant therapeutic benefit over existing treatments and/or not fulfil a therapeutic need for pediatric population.
