SimInhale Symposium: Designing Inhalers for Children and Infants

6th Dec 2017

Edinburgh

The Focus:

For developers of orally inhaled drug products, paediatric patients, especially the youngest age groups, are generally not the primary focus of development. When bringing a new drug into this field, the regulatory road is already bumpy enough and from a risk management perspective putting a new drug in a new device is not a road that many pharma companies dare to take.

As a consequence of this, the devices for the youngest age groups mostly consist of good old nebulizers or add-ons for pMDIs, especially valved holding chambers with masks and indicators.

The idea to have a symposium on this special group of users came up at the initiation of the COST Action SimInhale. What are the requirements for a suitable inhaler for young patients? How does our anatomy develop from newborn to adolescent. And what are young children’s physical and cognitive skills? Can they handle a DPI? Or a soft mist inhaler? From what age does it make sense to use a mouthpiece? There would be room for one or two full days of lectures to cover all relevant issues, but this morning session prior to DDL is a good start to align on this important topic.
