Pediatric Medicine 2018

Market Analysis

The global market for pediatric medicine was around $83.6 billion in 2014, potentially rising by about 4% annually until 2019 reaching $100.7 billion. Among the booming market rise categories Vaccines, inflammatory diseases, respiratory conditions and viral infections are key therapy areas, in addition to central nervous system (CNS) treatments and oncology. Obesity, conjointly with diabetes in later life, is a special concern (as well as for Type I diabetes itself, generally a childhood condition). Moreover, the growth of specialty drugs under the Orphan Drug Act has been an added boon for pediatric medicine with children being the most preys to rare diseases. Orphan drug diseases have also provided new opportunities for the industry to target pediatric drugs to treat childhood cancers, metabolic diseases and immune-related diseases. Pediatric medicine market’s significant rise through 2019 can be attributed to the industry becoming more familiar with designing and implementing trials in the pediatric population. In addition, the focus on commercially viable targets of high unmet clinical needs such as diseases designated under the Orphan Drug Act (ODA), those for pediatric oncology and the treatment of metabolic disorders.

However, surveys say that when assessing for clinicians prescribing a medicine which is off-label to a pediatric patient, 20% of physicians don’t inform the parent or guardian that they are doing so, and only 24% of physicians require legal consent. Thus it is evident that there is an increased risk of malpractice lawsuits without informed consent.

Reports say that researchers who have studied the impact of hospital medicine in 12 U.S. cities have found a “stunning” level of variation. The researchers were surprised at different models hospitalist programs carried out around the country. To their surprise different types of hospitalist programs function side by side in single markets. Nevertheless, when it comes to utilizing hospitalists, the American Hospital Association reported that 60 percent of hospitals staff these specialists today, up from only 30 percent 10 years ago.

Sessions/Tracks

Track 1: Clinical conundrums

Pediatric clinical conundrums are some interesting topics of discussion for clinicians around the world. More than theoretical approach a real time case study or case report is more effective to deal with critical situations arising in the hospital. This session will focus on all such case studies and real experiences of paediatricians and other physicians in the hospital. A systematic approach towards better pediatric healthcare will be the main aim of this conference session.

Track 2: Pediatric and hospital medicine specialties

The American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP) started the section on Hospital Medicine with approximately just over 400 members in the year 2005 and presently with the rise in importance of this speciality now has over 2,000 members. With the sole outlook and motive of transitioning patients safely back into the community at the time of their discharge is the aim of every hospitalist. The inpatient teams consisting several sub-specialities and including the patient, family and social and other services coordinate to form an interdisciplinary plan of healthcare that is necessary.This session of the conference will aim to associate with such care givers who are instrumental in providing the best and required treatments to the patients.

Track 3: Challenges in Pediatric drug development

Pediatric drug development is a challenge for over the past half a century. There are quite a few childhood diseases which have significant occurrence rates in pediatric subjects but  for which there are no approved drugs. Reports say that as a result of low prioritization of pediatric drug development globally about 75% of drugs do not carry regulatory approval for use in infants or children; ~66% of medications used in children in the US are used off label, 50% in Europe and in Japan it is less than 20%. Most medications in these regions donot contain package inserts have adequate information for treating infants or children. This session will address all such issues including R&D, F&D and regulatory framework with research scientists from different pharmaceutical industries and also drug discovery researchers.

Track 4: Pediatric drug delivery and dosage forms

A different or modified drug delivery system is required by the pediatric patients compared to other subsets of the population due to their continuing development hence dosing and administration requirements. Conventional formulations are not designed for pediatric patients. Hence it becomes necessity to manipulate and compound the medication accordingly and this has become common practice. The pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of a drug varies broadly depending on the factors like developmental stage of a child, necessitating dose flexibility to suit the dosing requirements etc. Excipients which are commonly regarded as safe may pose a safety risk for child group in addition to other considerations of the formulation and development of the dosage form a drug. Palatability and ease of swallowing are also considered as pivotal parametrs for the acceptability of medicines intended for children, who due to their age possess distinct preferences and swallowing abilities than other subsets of the population. New formulation design approaches like multiparticulate drug delivery systems, orodispersible tablets (ODTs), orodispersible films (ODFs), and chewable formulations are gainig importance based on their respective efficacy, PK/PD factors and patient compliances.
