Frequently Asked Questions:
Serious medication errors due to the off-label and unlicensed use of medicines in the pediatric population have led the EMA and the FDA to develop the regulations for testing medicines in the pediatric population. The Pediatric Regulation in the EU mandate pharmaceutical companies test medicines on children. It is essential that children have safe, effective medicines but this needs to be balanced against the money companies will make. Pharmaceutical companies therefore need scrupulous ethical safeguards to ensure fully informed consent from parents and assent from the children. This will facilitate children's research needs and refute accusations of using children for profit.
Children are not small adults and have different needs and expectations when it comes to making sure their medicines are safe and effective. This has a huge impact concerning the ethics of using children in pharmaceutical studies as they have limited understanding and may not be able to make informed decisions. There is therefore a huge weight of ethical responsibility on the pharmaceutical researcher to take particular care when running such studies.
