How to Plan and Implement a Pharmacology to Payer Framework

C. Kirkpatrick, C. Rayner

Pharmacology to the payer (P2P) is an innovative approach to create a framework for dialogue between drug sponsors, regulators, and payers. The core structure is the sequential linking of quantitative mathematical models—pharmacology, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD), disease progression, epidemiology, health utilization, and health economics. In this blog post, we discuss how working with an amazing team of […]

Surveying the Lay of the Land for Modeling & Simulation for Global Regulatory Submissions

Maria Saluta

Analogous to how a geologist surveys the “lay of the land” to determine if oil lies underneath, or an investment advisor strives to understand the “lay of the land” to decide how to invest in a turbulent market, sponsors and regulators also need to determine how to best utilize and report modeling and simulation results […]

How Clinical Pharmacology Gap Analysis Can Create Value

Julie Bullock

During my years reviewing applications for the US FDA, I encountered a lot of poor planning concerning a drug’s clinical pharmacology program. This poor planning left the company either lacking data to make informed decisions or scrambling at the end of development to address unanswered issues. Early planning is key to regulatory success, not only […]
