PBPK/PD Workshop @ ACoP 10, 2019

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on PBPK/PD (PB-QSP) of ADCs in oncology research on Saturday 19th of October at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL, US, as a satellite meeting to ACOP 10 2019.

PB-QSP aka PBPK/PD, the future of QSP with PK-Sim & MoBi (OSP Suite)

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on PBPK/PD (PB-QSP) of antibody-drug conjugates in the treatment of tumor growth on Saturday 19th of October at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL, US, as a satellite meeting to ACoP 10, 2019. The workshop covers concepts and application of combining PK-Sim, MoBi and R to build your very own digital platforms for the prediction of clinical trial outcomes by leveraging physiological and mechanistic knowledge to translate early in-vitro and preclinical outcomes to the clinic. During hands-on exercises you will learn how to:

  • Build am antibody (protein-) PBPK model in PK-Sim and compare to observed data
  • Integrate mechanisms for target-mediated frug disposition (TMDD)
  • Extend model structure with a new organ (Tumor)
  • Integrate mechanism-based pharmacodynamics in MoBi
  • Conduct parameter identifications in PK-Sim and MoBi
  • Simulate and analyze your PBPK-QSP model in R

This workshop will be held by consultants & scientists from esqlabs GmbH with extensive experience in the use of PK-Sim® & MoBi® in all application areas.

While the workshop does not require any prior experience with PK-Sim® & MoBi®, many topics will be of interest even for advanced users.

REGISTRATION

You can register for the workshop when you register for ACoP 10 (please visit the ACoP website on: go-acop.org)

The workshop is currently restricted to 40 participants.

Registration includes coffee- and lunch breaks.

AGENDA

As a use-case for above learnings, we will develop a PB-QSP model for naked antibody pre-treatment (nAb) for antibody-drug conjugates (ADC) treatment of tumor growth, in detail:
