Simcyp Animal

Simcyp has developed a whole-body physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modelling platform for rat, dog and knock-out mouse which can be used to:

  • assess PK properties
  • evaluate formulation and food effects on drug absorption
  • predict concentration-time profiles in plasma, tissues and organs 
  • investigate the formation and kinetics of primary metabolites.

Simulations with Simcyp Animal can help in the identification of key data requirements and the design of subsequent experiments and have been used to increase confidence in in vitro – in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) before moving to human simulations.

When used in conjunction with the Simcyp Population-based Simulator, Simcyp Animal allows comparison of human and animal data without relying upon allometric scaling, which may not be a valid approach for some parameters.
