Biologic drug development is a rapidly evolving sector in the biopharmaceutical industry. Immunogenicity is an inherent challenge with this complex class of drugs. A quantitative systems pharmacology approach can be used to predict and better manage immunogenicity, and as a tool to guide clinical and regulatory decision-making in biologics drug development.
The ability to estimate systemic exposure from dermal absorption is essential in developing new dermatological medications or assessing the toxicological liability of commercially-used chemicals. Historically, animal models were used to evaluate dermal drug absorption prior to clinical testing. However, both differences in human and animal physiology as well as ethical concerns over animal testing have … Continued
