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 […]
Watch this webinar with Dr. Graham Scott, Senior Director of Clinical Pharmacology at Certara Strategic Consulting, to learn why you should invest in “apocalyptic clinical pharmacology.” Dr. Scott presented case studies that illustrate how sponsors can benefit from a clinical pharmacology strategy that uses model-informed approaches to inform and “fill in the gaps” of clinical trials.
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 […]
PRINCETON, NJ – Feb. 14, 2018 – Certara today announced the launch of version 10 of D360, its data informatics platform for discovery scientists. D360 is a self-service data access, integration and visualization solution used to query diverse cheminformatics and bioinformatics data sources to make informed go/no go research decisions.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs, has outlined the steps the US FDA will take to implement the 21st Century Cures Act. In outlining the plan, the Commissioner endorses modeling and simulation approaches to increase the efficiency of drug development. Certara has launched Phoenix® 8.0, the latest version of the innovative PK/PD […]
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 […]
PRINCETON, NJ – Feb. 1, 2018 – Certara today announced that it has acquired BaseCase Management GmbH, a data visualization software as a service (SaaS) company headquartered in Berlin, Germany, with offices in New York.
Watch this webinar with Cen Guo—a graduate student at UNC-Chapel Hill—to learn how she used an integrated approach to predict alterations in bile acid disposition due to inhibition of multiple transporters using the model bile acid taurocholate (TCA).
Oncology drug developers face a distinct set of challenges. Oncology drugs are often very toxic which precludes conducting clinical trials in healthy volunteers. In addition, cancer patients differ from healthy people in terms of their demographics and physiology. These changes mean that the pharmacokinetics of drugs may be altered in this population compared to healthy […]
In JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, the power of the one ring forged by the evil sorcerer, Sauron, is used to control all of the disaggregated, independent kingdoms of Middle Earth. Similarly, but without the malice, the “pharmacology to the payer” (P2P) quantitative framework can be viewed as a way to unite and connect […]
