Clinical Pharmacology Gap Analysis: Lessons Learned

Julie Bullock

Clinical pharmacology gap analysis is a tool for outlining your drug program’s needs, prioritizing these needs, and providing a framework for how to satisfy them. This tool can create value for drug development programs. While gap analysis can be performed at any point in the drug development continuum, early engagement is best for maximizing its benefits. […]

Using M&S to Evaluate Oncology Drug Dosing

Maria Saluta

There are numerous challenges in developing oncology drugs: (1) they are often very toxic which precludes conducting clinical trials in healthy volunteers, (2) the PK of a drug may be altered in cancer patients due to demographic and physiological differences as compared to healthy volunteers, and (3) cancer patients face elevated drug-drug interaction (DDI) risk […]

How to Maximize the Benefits of Clinical Pharmacology Gap Analysis

Julie Bullock

Many companies have tried and true clinical pharmacology practices. But when the rubber hits the road for your drug program, will these practices support regulatory success? Has your historic approach to drug development been updated to include the latest modeling and simulation innovations? It’s hard to change how you’ve historically done things. But, do you […]

Surveying the Lay of the Land for Modeling & Simulation for Global Regulatory Submissions

Maria Saluta

Analogous to how a geologist surveys the “lay of the land” to determine if oil lies underneath, or an investment advisor strives to understand the “lay of the land” to decide how to invest in a turbulent market, sponsors and regulators also need to determine how to best utilize and report modeling and simulation results […]

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 […]

The Biggest Drug Development News Stories in 2017

Suzanne Minton

When I reflect on the state of drug development in 2017, the opening lines of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities comes to mind. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, […]
