About the Topic

Accurate prediction of human PK is the first step towards human dose prediction in the clinic. Clearance is one of the most important PK parameters, as it impacts not only dose, but also dosing frequency. In vitro to in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) using human liver microsomes and hepatocytes is commonly applied in drug discovery to predict hepatic clearance of drug candidates. Allometric scaling is an effective approach to estimate human oral absorption, volume of distribution, renal clearance, and other PK parameters. Species difference in drug disposition will need to be considered when applying allometric scaling. The critical roles of transporters in drug disposition are increasingly recognized and new strategies have been developed to predict transporter-mediated clearance and volume of distribution. PK/PD relationships are highly effective in our understanding of efficacious dose for a given disease target. The workshop features contemporary approaches on important topics related to human PK and dose prediction, as well as regulatory perspective on design of first-in-human studies and selection of dosing regimen. 

  • Clearance IVIVE using liver microsomes and hepatocytes
  • Allometry scaling of PK parameters 
  • Prediction of oral absorption and bioavailability
  • Transporter-mediated hepatobiliary and renal clearance
  • Prediction of human volume of distribution
  • The role of PK/PD in human dose prediction
  • PAXLOVIDTM case study
  • Regulatory perspective on design of FIH studies and selection of dosing regimen
