  • (1888PressRelease) May 16, 2012 - Rosa & Co. LLC today announced that Dr. Toufigh Gordi, Rosa & Co, will present a webinar "Mechanistic PK/PD Modeling in Pediatrics" on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT as part of Rosa's ongoing monthly public webinar series. The purpose of the series, "Impact of Modeling & Simulation in Drug Development", is to foster the use of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) activities in biotechnology, pharmaceutics, and other life science industries. This series is geared to illustrate the advantages and applicability of M&S in product discovery, development, and marketing programs.

    According to Dr. Gordi, "Drug development for pediatric patients can be difficult due to these subjects being a limited, fragile population with high safety requirements. Microdosing and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) could be an alternative methodology for neonatal PK studies. AMS-derived PK and system pharmacology models for ursodiol, a secondary bile acid, were developed for use with neonates. We investigated the utility of each model as well as investigating possible causes of the observed variability."

    About Rosa
    Rosa informs our customer's most critical decisions - from preclinical through clinical development - with the creation and use of mathematical models that simulate disease physiology, drug action, patient variability, and trial outcomes. To address the full spectrum of related issues, Rosa offers two customized approaches: classic pharmacokinetic/ pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) models and Rosa's innovative PhysioPD™ models. With these approaches, Rosa's clients collaborate in model creation and testing, retain the final model, and acquire the ability to use it and understand its implications for their drug development programs.

    Rosa's staff have unparalleled professional experience in using drug-disease modeling and simulation (M&S) to accelerate drug development and have completed hundreds of engagements with dozens of clients in multiple therapeutic areas. The Rosa team is unique in their breadth and depth of disease area experience, which includes metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, oncology, gastro-intestinal disease, inflammatory diseases, immune dysfunction (including rheumatoid arthritis), pain, skin conditions, respiratory disorders, and antibacterials/antivirals.
