Highlights for AAPS 2022

Presentation on Monday, October 17 | Starting 10am ET 

Dr. Shriram Pathak, Senior Research Fellow, will present Model Informed Drug Development: A Key Metric to Expedite Compound Progression in Drug Discovery, during the morning symposium: Bridging The Cross-Functional Silos To Expedite Compound Progression Into The Clinic (CE).

Presentation Overview

Introduction of PBPK modeling early in the programme can help maximize the utilization of drug’s early physchem, in-vitro and pre-clinical dataset to inform downstream decision-making. For instance, at candidate selection stages, M&S can provide valuable insights about the key drug attributes viz. selection of an appropriate solid state (amorphous vs crystalline polymorph); requirement of particle size reduction; possible food effect; membrane permeation; blood binding and tissue distribution parameters etc. allowing for maximum leverage from the limited dataset available and thereby ensuring program is well prepared for entering the clinical phase. Modeling techniques can also help understanding the drivers of reduced oral bioavailability of early drug candidates and can inform downstream formulation decision-making so that the efforts can be focused on the correct techniques to provide meaningful improvements in in-vivo performance, and at the same time, avoiding the risk of jumping to overly complex formulations which may add an unnecessary time and cost to the drug development process. This session will introduce the current state of knowledge and present real time case studies demonstrating how an optimum use of PBPK modeling techniques can support a ‘rationale’ drug development, thereby expediting the process of moving potential lead candidates from discovery to the clinic and subsequent commercialization.

Learning Objectives

  • Present the value and purpose of key in-silico (viz. PBPK) modeling techniques in early drug development programmes.
  • Introduce the current state of knowledge and highlight how PBPK modeling can be used to risk assess lead compounds prior entering the clinical phase.
  • Discuss the current knowledge gaps and critical challenges within the field and help exchanging of ideas to move this fundamental science further.
