Overview

Overview

  • Pediatric Use Information requirement – Pediatric Rules and Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA)

  • Decision tree regarding extrapolation

    • Example: Allegra – allergic rhinitis (AR) and chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU)

  • Example of an antihistamine studied for a “cold” indication in patients ≥12 years of age


Pediatric use information under the pediatric research equity act prea

Pediatric Use Information under the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA)

  • Pediatric Rules

    • 1994 Pediatric Rule (pediatric use information and extrapolation of efficacy)

    • 1998 Pediatric Rule (pediatric study requirement)

  • PREA (December 3, 2003)

    • Codifies both Pediatric Rules (21 CFR 314.55)

    • Requires submission of pediatric assessments and allows for extrapolation of efficacy

    • Applies to drug and biologic applications submitted on or after April 1, 1999, if the disease occurs in both adult and pediatric populations

    • Does not apply to monographed drugs


Extrapolation under prea

Extrapolation under PREA*

  • Extrapolation of efficacy from adult studies (or studies in other pediatric age groups) may be supported IF:

    “the course of the disease and the effects of the drug [both beneficial and adverse] are sufficiently similar in pediatric and adult populations”

  • Supplemented by dosing, PK, and safety data in the appropriate pediatric age groups

  • Clinical studies are necessary when extrapolation is not appropriate

  • Safety not extrapolated – confirm safety findings from adults and older age groups

    * Draft Guidance for Industry: How to Comply with the Pediatric Research Equity Act, September 2005; http://www.fda.gov/cder/guidance/


Extrapolation of efficacy to children

Extrapolation of Efficacy to Children

  • Depends upon

    • Course and pathophysiology of disease / lower bounds of disease process

    • Immune maturation and response

    • Anatomical differences

    • Response to drug

  • Other factors

    • Experience with the disease and drug / drug class

    • Systemic vs local activity and exposure

    • Estimation of the efficacy / safety balance


Systemic vs locally acting drugs

Systemic vs Locally Acting Drugs

  • Systemic drugs

    • Drug measurable in blood

    • Blood is relevant biospace

    • PK allows estimation of dose from adult data

    • Examples: Oral drug products

  • Locally active drugs

    • Drug may be measurable in blood, but

    • Blood is not relevant biospace (relevant biospace is lung or nose)

    • PK not helpful for estimation of dose

    • Examples: Intranasal and orally inhaled drugs


Difficulties with performing studies in children

Difficulties with Performing Studies in Children

  • Consent / assent

  • Ethics

  • Limitations of blood draws

  • General lack of accepted endpoints and validated pediatric assessment tools (depends upon disease being studied)

    • Subjective endpoints

    • Objective endpoints

  • Maturational impact on dosing

  • Limited populations for certain diseases

  • Limited marketing potential compared with adults


Extrapolation in dpap

Extrapolation in DPAP

  • DPAP has accepted applications using extrapolation from older age groups for:

    • Allergic rhinitis

      • Seasonal (SAR) – 2 years*

      • Perennial (PAR) – 6 months*

    • Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) – 6 months*

  • For allergic rhinitis and CIU, the biology of the disease and drug’s effect are well established and substantially similar between children and adults

  • DPAP has not yet made a decision regarding extrapolation for a “common cold” indication

    * Lower age bounds based on totality of understanding of the disease process


Pediatric development programs allergic rhinitis and ciu

Pediatric Development Programs – Allergic Rhinitis and CIU

  • Efficacy and safety generally established in adults and adolescents first

  • Evaluate efficacy in patients as young as can cooperate

  • PK in all ages

  • Safety in all ages


Allergic rhinitis efficacy assessments

Allergic Rhinitis Efficacy Assessments*

  • Total Nasal Symptom Scores

    • Rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, nasal itching, sneezing

    • Severity rated on 4-point scale, 0-3

  • Patient-assessed

    • Over 2 weeks for SAR

    • Over 4 weeks for PAR

  • Reflective and instantaneous scoring recorded in a diary at least as often as the dosing interval

    * Draft Guidance for Industry: Allergic Rhinitis: Clinical Development Programs for Drug Products, June 2000; http://www.fda.gov/cder/guidance/


Allegra fexofenadine pediatric patients

Allegra (fexofenadine), Pediatric patients

  • Approved in 1996 for SAR in patients ≥12 years of age at a dose of 60 mg twice daily

  • SAR, 6-11 years (30 mg BID)

    • PK – comparable exposure to adults

    • Efficacy and Safety: 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-week SAR studies (N >400)

  • SAR, 2-5 years (30 mg BID)

    • Extrapolation of efficacy

    • 3 PK and 3 Safety studies in children with allergic rhinitis 6 months through 5 years (N=969)

  • CIU, 6 months - 11 years (15 and 30 mg BID)

    • Extrapolation of efficacy from three 4-week CIU studies in patients ≥12 years

    • PK and Safety in all ages


Tavist 1 clemastine fumarate 1 34 mg

Tavist-1 (clemastine fumarate, 1.34 mg)

  • Clemastine fumarate

    • Antihistamine of the ethanolamine class (structurally similar to diphenhydramine and carbinoxamine)

    • Anticholinergic activity

  • Rx to OTC switch approved in 1992 for allergic rhinitis

  • Rx supplement approved in 1996 for treatment of colds in patients ≥12 years of age


Tavist 1 colds 12 years

Tavist-1, Colds, ≥12 years

  • Program included

    • 1 natural and 1 induced cold study

    • Additional information from 4 natural cold marketing studies not performed under the IND

  • Subject of a joint Pulmonary-Allergy and Nonprescription AC meeting, November 1995

  • AC Recommended approval for the treatment of rhinorrhea and sneezing in adults and children 12 years of age and older with the common cold


Natural cold study

Natural cold study

  • Randomized, double-blind in 403 previously enrolled patients, treated with Tavist-1 or placebo for 5 days within 24 hours of the start of cold symptoms

  • 1° efficacy endpoint: Change from Day 1 (baseline – instantaneous) to Day 2 and 3 (retrospective 24-hour) scores for sneezing and rhinorrhea, 0-4 scale


Natural cold study treatment group means 2 way anova itt population

Natural cold studyTreatment group means, 2-way ANOVA, ITT population
