Using Virtual Twin™ Technology for Model-informed Precision Dosing

Thomas Polasek

In a recent Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology article, I assessed the status and future direction of precision dosing in clinical medicine.1 Model-informed precision dosing (MIPD) is a modeling and simulation (M&S) approach in healthcare that is used to predict the most effective and/or least toxic drug dose for a patient. MIPD could revolutionize healthcare […]

Using Virtual Cancer Patients to Probe the Mechanisms of Oncology Drug Disposition

Oliver Hatley

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 […]

A Practical Approach to the Challenges of Pediatric Drug Development

Barry Mangum

Drug developers can’t take an adult clinical trial protocol and simply retool it for pediatrics. Yet, in my work at a pediatric clinical research organization (CRO), I frequently see sponsors attempt to do just that. Successfully implementing a pediatric drug development plan poses challenges regarding trial planning, design, and conduct. In this blog post, I’ll […]

Modeling & Simulation Take a Prominent Role in FDA’s Newly Published DDI Guidances

Ellen Leinfuss

On October 25, 2017, the FDA published two new guidance documents on drug-drug interactions (DDI). These guidance documents replace the February 2012 guidance, “Drug Interaction Studies—Study Design, Data Analysis, Implications for Dosing, and Labeling Recommendations.” According to the FDA, these new guidances reflect the agency’s current thinking and greater learnings on DDI and provides a […]
