QSP: Integrating Quantitative Drug Data with Knowledge of Its Mechanism of Action One of the biggest challenges—and, hence, the biggest opportunity for QSP—is drug attrition in Phase 2 clinical trials. Investigational medicines are usually tested for the first time in patients in Phase 2 clinical trials. This is the point when many drug programs fail. […]

Orphan Drug Development

Orphan Drugs: Unique Challenges Require Unique Development Approaches Developing drugs for rare diseases poses a range of clinical, regulatory and commercial challenges. The small number of patient populations are difficult to identify and recruit for clinical trials. Many orphan diseases are genetic. Often these patients have complex phenotypes that react very differently to proposed treatment […]

Pediatric Drug Development

Understanding Drug Effects in Children Pediatric drug development continues to be a vexing challenge, yet pediatric research is increasingly being mandated by regulators and patients alike. Traditional development methods can be problematic for ethical and logistical reasons. Children are a heterogeneous population, especially neonates and infants, as organ maturation affects drug exposure and response. Leveraging […]

Benefits of Modeling and Simulation

The Benefits of Modeling and Simulation in Drug Development Modeling and simulation, also known as “model-informed drug development,” has already had a profound impact on drug development, yet its full impact is just now coming to light.  Modeling and simulation (M&S) has the proven ability to influence every phase of the drug development process, including […]
