At The Forefront Of Pediatric Drug Development


We have performed, over our history:

  • 245+  Clinical Studies
  • 25+  Indications

Biotech and pharma companies today face increased regulatory requirements for pediatric trials as they address the need to advance treatments for diseases unique to children. Pediatric development plans are a requirement for new drugs in the US and EU, and pediatric clinical research is on the rise. Recruitment, ethical, scientific, logistical challenges, and product labeling all pose specific needs in studies aimed at children.

Our recent acquisition of KinderPharm builds on Synteract’s extensive operational and regulatory experience and commitment to pediatric drug development. Through the KinderPharm integration, we are able to provide a single source model for preclinical and clinical pediatric drug development services.

Our recent acquisition of KinderPharm builds on Synteract’s extensive experience in navigating complex regulatory environments and commitment to pediatric drug development.
