The Importance of Children in Clinical Studies

Watch the Documentary

Why It's Important

Why Do Research in Children?

Children are given a medicine, and 70% of those medicines have only been tested in adults

Why Clinical Studies are Important

Clinical research in children helps us to treat our children like children, rather than as little adults.

Research vs. Care

Clinical research can look a lot like regular, or standard, medical care. Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference.

How Children Benefit

Research is done to gain information about a disease, condition, drug, or treatment to benefit future children.

The Kids Files

The Kids Files are designed for kids and parents to explore together and learn about clinical studies, through interactive games and activity pages.
