When obtaining child assent, relevant elements of informed consent should be provided that are ______. appropriate to the child’s capability to understand
It may be necessary to reassess the assent of a child in recognition of their _________ and competency. advancing age, evolving maturity
During clinical studies there is a requirement for obtaining adequate informed consent for continued participation from pediatric participants once a child reaches _______. the age of legal consent

In some cases, there are difficulties with generating data across a pediatric population due to a variety of ethical considerations and ________. feasibility issues
Waiting to begin planning until adult development has concluded can ________ to generate meaningful data for pediatric drug development. limit the opportunity
An approach to providing evidence in support a drug/treatment in a pediatric population when it can be assumed that the course of the disease and expected response to a drug would be sufficiently similar in the pediatric and reference population. Pediatric extrapolation
When a drug is studied in a pediatric population, one should consider all factors which may result in different drug responses, such as______ factors that could impact on the extrapolation of data from one population to the other. intrinsic (e.g., developmental) and extrinsic (e.g., geographic)
