For an alliance between science, ethics and politics in promoting paediatric trials. Commentary

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

After several decades during which children tended to be excluded from clinical trials, provisions to encourage trials with children have been in place for some years both at international level and in individual countries. The Nuffield Council on Bioethics has published a broad-ranging report on the subject, which makes concrete proposals for decision-makers and comes at a crucial moment in the definition of European Union regulations on this topic.
