Quantitative Pharmacology Strategies for Pediatric Drug Development

Patrick Smith

Pediatric patients are not simply small adults. Children differ from adults in both disease pathophysiology and pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD). Yet historically, 80 percent of medicines used in children had little to no data guiding prescribers on proper use. In this blog post, I’ll discuss the challenges of developing drugs for children and explain how quantitative pharmacology […]

Impact of Low-dose Ritonavir on Danoprevir Pharmacokinetics: Results of Computer-based Simulations and a Clinical Drug-drug Interaction Study

Danoprevir, a potent, selective inhibitor of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3/4A protease, is metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A. Clinical studies in HCV patients have shown a potential need for a high danoprevir daily dose and/or dosing frequency. Ritonavir, an HIV-1 protease inhibitor (PI) and potent CYP3A inhibitor, is used as a pharmacokinetic enhancer […]
