Making Sense of 6MWT Variability: Developing a Disease Progression Model for DMD

Lora Hamuro

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a life-threatening, sex-linked, pediatric rare disease, primarily affecting boys. It is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration, weakness, and eventually functional loss. DMD is caused by a mutation in the dystrophin gene, a protein needed to maintain muscle integrity, and for improving signaling and growth in differentiation of the muscle tissue. […]

Pharmacometrics Skills Competition MIDD Gran Prix

Julie Dumond

Sitting around the Certara’s Raleigh office conference room, sketching out a pitch for a pharmacometrics contest at a national meeting, none of us were overly confident in its viability. Mark Lovern had been talking about the importance of communication skills for pharmacometricians. For them to influence critical drug development decisions, they should be able to […]

Modeling PK/PD Systems with Distributed Delays

Suzanne Minton

Many biological systems exhibit time delays. For instance, there is a delay between the time that a virus infects a cell and the onset of viral production. Mathematical models that incorporate these temporal delays are often used to characterize the pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) of drugs. In this blog post, I’ll discuss some examples of biological systems […]

Modeling Delayed Outcomes in PK/PD Studies Using DDEs

Shuhua Hu

Delays are ubiquitous in pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) studies. Transit compartment models, described by systems of ordinary differential equations, have been widely used to describe delayed outcomes in PK and PD studies. The obvious disadvantage for this type of model is it requires manually finding proper values for the number of compartments. In addition, […]
