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 […]

Skin in the Game: Mechanistic Modeling of Dermal Drug Absorption

Nikunjkumar Patel

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 […]
