UNLABELLED Results from human studies with the PET radiotracer (S,S)-[(11)C]O-methyl reboxetine ([(11)C](S,S)-MRB), a ligand targeting the norepinephrine transporter (NET), are reported. Quantification methods were determined from test/retest studies, and sensitivity to pharmacological blockade was tested with different doses of atomoxetine (ATX), a drug(More)
Docetaxel, a novel anticancer agent, was given to 26 patients by short i.v. infusion (1-2 h) at various dose levels (70-115 mg/m2, the maximum tolerated dose) during 2 phase I studies. Two population analyses, one using NONMEM (nonlinear mixed-effect modeling) and the other using NPML (nonparametric maximum-likelihood), were performed sequentially to(More)
This document was developed to enable greater consistency in the practice, application, and documentation of Model-Informed Drug Discovery and Development (MID3) across the pharmaceutical industry. A collection of "good practice" recommendations are assembled here in order to minimize the heterogeneity in both the quality and content of MID3 implementation(More)
Allometric scaling is an empirical examination of the relationships between the pharmacokinetic parameters and size (usually body weight), but it can also involve brain weight for metabolized drug. Through all species, the protein binding of sumatriptan is similar (14-16%), and its metabolic pathway undergoes extensive oxidative deamination involving the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to characterize trastuzumab population pharmacokinetics (PKs) in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive advanced gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer and the relationship of trastuzumab PK with patient response. METHODS A nonlinear mixed effects PK model was built using data from the ToGA(More)
OBJECTIVE This paper describes a developed pharmacokinetic model for the estimation of valproic acid (VPA) clearance (CL) calculated from routine clinical data taken from Egyptian epileptic patients. METHODS Retrospective clinical data from 81 adult and paediatric epileptic patients with one trough VPA serum concentration per patient were analysed using(More)
This work proposes and evaluates two methods (CM1 and CM2) for detecting non-compliance using concentration–time data and for obtaining estimates of population pharmacokinetic model parameters in a population with prevalent non-compliance. CM1 estimates individual residual variability (RV) and identifies subjects with higher than average RV as(More)
The pharmacokinetics of pefloxacin (PF) were investigated in a population of 74 intensive care unit patients receiving 400 mg bid as 1-hr infusion using (i) Bayesian estimation (BE) of individual patient parameters followed by multiple linear regression (MLR) analysis and (ii) NONMEM analysis. The data consisted of 3 to 9 PF plasma levels per patient(More)
Sumatriptan is indicated for the treatment of migraine attack and cluster headache; it is currently marketed as a subcutaneous injection, nasal spray, and oral tablet. New formulations are under consideration. The knowledge of sumatriptan absorption, combined with PK/PD information would help the design of more efficient formulations. In this perspective,(More)
Predicting late phase outcomes from early-phase findings can help inform decisions in drug development. If the measurements in early-phase differ from those in late phase, forecasting is more challenging. In this paper, we present a model-based approach for predicting glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in late phase using glucose and insulin concentrations(More)
