This symposium will cover multi-ethnic, special populations, and patient diversity in clinical trials. It will illustrate an assessment of over 10,000 trials, recently conducted by sponsor companies, to quantify the differences of pediatric trials from adult studies. It will illuminate the learning’s in site identification, site qualification, and enrollment from the DOVE study, a 14-country study representing a mix of traditional and developing regions. It will then evaluate and analyze the available data regarding the characteristics of medicines approved for older patients in European Union and the US, contributing to the information in the geriatric population in order to discuss their access to innovative drugs.

Learning Objectives

Discuss country-specific differentiation in site activation, subject recruitment, and data quality, especially around developing regions, as demonstrated by the DOVE study; Classify the difference in performance between pediatric and adult studies; Describe the challenge of addressing geriatrics adequately in the assessment of medicines including the necessity to increase global regulatory dialogue and communication.
