Clonidine for Sedation of Paediatric Patients in the Intensive Care Unit

CloSed is a 5-year project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) with an international Consortium comprising 10 European partners and coordinated by Assoc. Prof. Antje Neubert, University Hospital of Erlangen.

The project aims to conduct a multicentre clinical trial of clonidine in children until the age of 18. Indeed, despite its widespread use in Pediatric Intensive Care Units (PICU), this drug still lacks authorisation for paediatric use. A parenteral age-appropriate formulation of clonidine for sedation in PICU will be developed and tested in order to obtain a Pediatric Use Marketing Authorisation (PUMA).
