Clinical research for children is important to provide medicinal products specifically for children. This has also been given high priority by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and a European legal environment for research involving children has been established in 2006. Apart from European legislation, there are also numerous national laws that must be observed in clinical studies (and not only with children). In addition to the scientific planning of studies, these regulatory requirements must also be taken into account..
Professional partner for clinical studies
Studies can be comprehensively supported due to connection to both the university clinics for paediatrics and the Coordinating Centres/Centres of competence for Clinical Trials (CCT) at medical universities and specialised hospitals.
... study initiation and management, contracts, insurance processing, monitoring and pharmacovigilance. The services of OKIDS are aimed at clients from the pharmaceutical industry as well as researchers and networks from the non-commercial, academic sector.
... between the world of research and the industrial sector.
Whoever our clients are, our primary aim is always independent studies of high scientific quality that comply with national and international guidelines and regulations and that can be expected to create value for our patients.
We have a unique paediatric research network at six locations in Austria in which experienced children's hospitals and universities throughout Austria (two in Vienna and one each in Graz, Salzburg, Linz and Innsbruck) have joined forces.
OKIDS is also intensively involved at the international level and is a partner in important transnational organisations.
As a national hub forming an innate component within this highly specialised paediatric research network, we offer the complete handling and organisation of paediatric medicinal product studies:
Within the OKIDS network, investigators and study nurses can find a wide range of training opportunities in the field of clinical research, ranging from GCP courses, workshops and individual lectures to university courses. As a client you can thus be sure that only highly trained experts supervise your study.
Thanks to cooperation in the network, successful recruitment strategies are passed on between the investigators, and specialists in private practice are optimally integrated.
The headquarters of the network in Vienna manages the service portfolio and coordinates the operational centres at the Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Linz and Innsbruck locations as a national hub. We look forward to hearing from you, and would be very happy to personally discuss how we can help you in the field of paediatric medicinal product research:
