A selection of short essays from our blog, written to empower our customers with modeling and simulation (M&S) and regulatory writing solutions in order to help them solve the toughest drug development problems. Certara staff contributions range in topic from pharmacometrics to systems biology to the growing importance of regulatory writing and sharing clinical trial results.
350 million patients worldwide suffer from 7,000 rare diseases, yet only 300 of these diseases have approved treatments. This gap, impacting 95% of rare disease patients, represents a huge unmet medical need. Developing drugs for rare diseases poses a range of clinical, regulatory and commercial challenges. The small number of patients are difficult to identify […]
Population Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Analyses from a 4-Month Intra-dose Escalation and Its Subsequent 12-month Dose Titration Studies for a Human Monoclonal Anti-FGF23 Antibody (KRN23) in Adults with X-linked Hypophosphatemia
Understanding the Relationship Between Systemic and Hepatic Exposure of Obeticholic Acid for the Treatment of Liver Disease in Patients with Cirrhosis
Obeticholic acid (OCA) is a selective and potent farnesoid X receptor (FXR) agonist in development for several chronic liver diseases. OCA is a semi-synthetic analogue of chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) with similar pharmacokinetic (PK) properties. There was a significant increase in systemic exposure of OCA in patients with hepatic impairment. A proportionally similar increase in systemic […]
