Sample Collection for Pediatrics Studies: Overcoming Technical and Logistical Obstacles

Therapeutic safety and efficacy in pediatric populations is both an important and underdeveloped aspect of translational and clinical health research. Pediatric physiology differs considerably both within the pediatric cohort and relative to the adult population, and studies conducted in pediatric populations yield different results than ones conducted using adult cohorts. For example, pharmaceutical medications exhibit age-dependent changes in effect and disposition, and safe doses differ between pediatric and adult patients.
