Certara’s Simcyp MechDermA Model Achieves Regulatory Approval: Demonstrates Virtual Bioequivalence in Dermal Drug Development

Demonstrating bioequivalence (BE) remains the key regulatory hurdle for generic drug approval.  However, this is a challenging process for today’s complex drugs and alternative delivery methods.  Consequently, patients lack availability of thousands of generics. This problem is especially vexing for topical drugs and trans-dermal patches. Regulatory Support for Expediting the Development of Dermal Generics The … Continued

Using Simcyp-guided ADME Biomarker Discovery to Prospectively Identify Patients at High Risk of Drug Toxicity

As novel molecular targets are being continuously discovered and new treatments developed, oncology is one of the biggest therapeutic areas in precision medicine. In particular, new targeted anti-cancer medications that are taken orally, such as the protein kinase inhibitors (KIs), are ideal candidates for model-informed precision dosing (MIPD) technologies.1 One of these technologies is called physiologically-based … Continued
