The Importance of Dose Prediction for Early Drug Development, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

20:00 EDT 21 Jun 2017 | Marketwired

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 22, 2017) - During a live broadcast on Thursday, July 6, 2017, Dr. Robert Harris, Chief Technical Officer at Juniper Pharma Services and Dr. Graham Trevitt, Director (DMPK Consultancy, Modelling and Simulation) at XenoGesis will provide insight into how their joint consultative approach can help drug developers better understand the absorption and clearance characteristics of a drug substance and how these properties can influence dose prediction and selection of an appropriate formulation strategy.

Gaining a thorough understanding of the chemical and pharmacological attributes of a drug substance through preclinical studies is paramount for providing an effective dosage form for first-in-human clinical trials. Yet often insufficient consideration is given to 'knowing the compound' before selecting a presentation for clinical evaluation. In particular, an accurate prediction of an appropriate dose range is vitally important for adopting the most appropriate formulation strategy for the compound. If the formulation is not suitable to deliver the required quantity of the drug then the outcome of the clinical trial may be compromised.

Juniper Pharma Services and XenoGesis is working together successfully to provide an integrated biopharmaceutics service offering. The unique combined approach helps to remove the gap between "chemical" and "biological" to help companies provide the most effective drug delivery solutions.
