Number of contacts with foreign regulators to discuss scientific, ethical or safety issues related to pediatrics in the month
Dictionary: Pediatric studies are usually global given the limited number of sick children, particularly those afflicted with chronic disease. Given the global nature of pediatric trials, it is critical that FDA expand its global outreach to include other regulatory entities that oversee pediatric trials. International scientific communication and collaboration will enhance the safety, ethics and scientific rigor of pediatric studies, thus preventing children from becoming a commodity on the global market for economic gain.
A "contact" refers to written or oral communication between FDA and foreign regulators on matters involving pediatric issues. E-mail is an example of written communication and a teleconference, as oral communication.
