Science Translational Medicine: 'Creating Hope Act' incentivizes pediatric drug R&D
Date:1/19/2011

ch, however, has shown repeatedly that drugs and devices for adults can impact children differently.

According to the authors, the Creating Hope Act of 2010 that is pending before Congress recognizes the importance of stimulating pediatric drug development. It updates the existing Priority Voucher for Neglected Diseases Program to include rare and serious diseases of childhood. That program offers a financial incentive to companies developing drugs for neglected diseases.

"Although government support is critical," the authors continued, "it is not sufficient to produce productsfor use in children. Incentive programs like the Creating Hope Act and other approaches designed to motivate drug development for children are also needed. Our investment in biomedical research is providing returns, and we need to assure that children, the most vulnerable among us, benefit from this investment as well."
