Pediatric medical device approvals lag behind adult approvals. Historically, medical devices have rarely been designed specifically for children, but use in children has most often borrowed from adult or general use applications. While a variety of social, economic, and clinical factors have contributed to this phenomenon, the regulatory process remains a fundamental aspect of pediatric device development and commercialization. FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) has established programmatic and technological areas of advancement to support innovation that serves the public health needs of children and special populations. We highlight four regulatory areas that have the potential to shape the future of pediatric cardiology: the CDRH Early Feasibility Study Program, advancements in 3D printing or additive manufacturing, computational modeling and simulation, and the use of real-world evidence for regulatory applications. These programs have the potential to impact all stages of device development, from early conception, design, and prototyping to clinical evidence generation, regulatory review, and finally commercialization. The success of these programs relies on a collaborative community of stakeholders, including government, regulators, device manufacturers, patients, payers, and the academic and professional community societies.

It is well established that the vast majority of human RNA transcripts do not encode for proteins and that non-coding RNAs regulate cell physiology and shape cellular functions. A subset of them is in...
Tomato has emerged as the model system for investigations into the regulation of fleshy-fruit ripening and senescence, and the ripening process involving the coordinated regulation at the gene/chromat...
Fine-tuning of gene expression is desirable for a wide range of applications in synthetic biology. In this context, RNA regulatory devices provide a powerful and highly functional tool. We developed a...
Talent acquisition in regulatory affairs has been a continuing challenge now exaggerated by demographic shifts and expansion of regulatory requirements nationally and globally.
Information on the 3D shape of vertebral endplates is lacking. Prior studies have analysed 2D shape, however 3D data is important as it may help improve our understanding of how differences in shape a...
This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a Cloak Shape sham Pediatric Tuina device which can be applied in randomized controlled trials for Pediatric Tuina research.
Tobacco regulatory policies can have unanticipated consequences; therefore, methods that would permit prospective estimates of the effects of potential tobacco regulations are necessary fo...
The sophisticated language of science can be a barrier to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) learning, especially for children who have specific language impairment (SLI). T...
In this study the investigators wish to test the hypothesis that treatment with Lemtrada is associated with alterations in immune homeostasis in favor of multiple regulatory leukocyte popu...
The purpose of this study is to characterize the morphology (shape) of the intracardiac electrograms(EGM) from patients with a resynchronization therapy device.
A negative regulatory effect on physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, or systemic level. At the molecular level, the major regulatory sites include membrane receptors, genes (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION), mRNAs (RNA, MESSENGER), and proteins.
A positive regulatory effect on physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, or systemic level. At the molecular level, the major regulatory sites include membrane receptors, genes (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION), mRNAs (RNA, MESSENGER), and proteins.
Process that is gone through in order for a device to receive approval by a government regulatory agency. This includes any required preclinical or clinical testing, review, submission, and evaluation of the applications and test results, and post-marketing surveillance. It is not restricted to FDA.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
Literary works whose subject matter is science or about the profession of science and related areas.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
The role of medical devices in healthcare is essential. The diversity and innovativeness of this sector contribute significantly to enhance the quality and efficacy of healthcare. Covering a wide range of products, from simple bandages to the...
