Certara Will Contribute to 26 Model-Informed Drug Development Sessions at ACoP10

Sessions feature physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK), pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) and quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) modeling and simulation

PRINCETON, NJ – Oct. 18, 2019 – Certara®, the global model-informed drug development and decision support leader, today announced that it is participating in 26 sessions at the International Society of Pharmacometrics’ (ISoP’s) annual scientific meeting: the 10th American Conference on Pharmacometrics (ACoP10). This year’s conference will be held from Oct. 20-23 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL.

“We welcome this opportunity to discuss and present our latest research with our industry colleagues and regulatory and academic partners. As the leader in model-informed drug development, Certara is committed to knowledge sharing and playing our part in keeping this science advancing. I am particularly excited to be able to report on the progress being made by our Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) Immunogenicity (IG) and Immuno-oncology Consortia, which includes publication of our first QSP IG Consortium paper, and the development of our new Neurodegeneration QSP Consortium. Our QSP consortia are composed of leading biopharmaceutical companies, who are working together in a pre-competitive environment to develop QSP simulators that can model specific clinical patient populations,” said Certara Senior Vice President QSP Professor Piet van der Graaf.

“We are also delighted to announce ISoP honors bestowed on two of our scientists: Dr. Linzhong Li (co-author of poster M-067) has been selected as an ACoP10 Poster Walk Presenter, and Dr. Shuhua Hu (T-060) has been chosen as a Mathematical and Computational Sciences (MCS) Poster Walk Presenter,” added Professor van der Graaf.

Certara will be providing hands-on demonstrations of several of its products during the conference. They include its Simcyp® Population-based Simulator for PBPK modeling and simulation and its enhanced Trial Simulator for computer-assisted trial design. They will be joined by Certara’s Phoenix WinNonlin™, the industry standard for non-compartmental analysis, PK/PD and toxicokinetic modeling, and its Phoenix Nonlinear Mixed Effects Modeling (NLME™) population PK/PD tool.

Also in action will be Certara’s Pirana workbench, which provides modelers with structure, tools and a GUI to facilitate the iterative model and simulation process; CODEx, its user-friendly interactive interface which allows scientists to explore and communicate with data in Certara’s clinical trial outcome databases; and Certara Integral™, its next-generation data repository for clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics.
