Model-informed drug development (MIDD) enables the carryover of the knowledge and wisdom from one phase to the next and from one indication to the next both in terms of successes and failures.

Clinical and Economic Value Assessment
We’ve helped partners across all therapeutic modalities and areas of expertise find success through model informed drug development.
|Cubist Pharmaceuticals sought to develop the novel antibacterial agent Zerbaxa™ (ceftolozane/tazobactam).
Our model-based analyses incorporated data collected in 10 studies to support go/no go decisions, improve understanding of drug exposure, and address regulatory needs for the drug’s expedited review and approval.
|Our partner needed to determine the optimal design for clinical equivalence trials to evaluate a fixed-dose combination (FDC) of two previously approved drugs, ezetimibe and atorvastatin. Using model-based meta-analysis, we predicted the impact of changes in exposure for the FDC on efficacy and informed the trial design. The model’s predictions helped to reduce the trial size by 17% while maintaining 90% probability of success.|
|Our biotech partner had a submission deadline in nine months for their first NDA. In addition to having a large clinical study, we were relying on historical data on the active ingredient for nonclinical requirements and had to integrate a parallel clinical program conducted in Japan. We developed a detailed daily timeline through to submission, led weekly submission team meetings, and authored all documents to beat the deadline.|
|Alkermes needed to understand the impact of variable dosing on its antipsychotic aripiprazole lauroxil (AL) and evaluate drug-drug interaction potential. We predicted the impact of co-administration of CYP3A4 and CYP2D6 inhibitors/inducers in patients with varying metabolizer status on aripiprazole exposure with Simcyp’s physiologically-based pharmacokinetic simulator and facilitated successful regulatory approval.|
