Pediatric Trials Network

To learn more about recent PTN accomplishments, check out the 2019 Annual Review.

Sponsored by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Pediatric Trials Network (PTN) is an alliance of clinical research sites cooperating in the design and conduct of pediatric clinical trials. PTN research provides evidence for optimal dosing of commonly used medications in infants and children, improving healthcare for these patients.





Evidence Into Practice
The leader in pediatric research of off-patent drugs

The PTN provides pediatricians, researchers, and regulators with new information on how children respond to medications. Studies are conducted primarily with off-patent drugs that are lacking data on safety, efficacy, and dosing in pediatric populations. The primary goal is to generate the data necessary to produce evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.
