2nd European Course on Pharmacokinetics
and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics
- Principles and Pharmacometric Approaches
August 29-31, 2017, Darmstadt, Germany
This second 3-day course, following the one given in Lausanne (CH) last year will introduce participants to basic principles in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of novel therapeutic proteins and provide opportunities for basic hands-on exercises in the PK/PD evaluation of these compounds. Topics include target-mediated drug disposition, tissue and tumor penetration, first-in-human dose selection, immunogenicity, clinical pharmacology challenges, biosimilars, and drug-drug interactions. Hands-on exercises and simulations will be performed individually and in small groups using simple software tools (no prior experience required).
The course is a shortened version of the week-long course on ‘Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics - Concepts and Hands-On Modeling and Simulation’ that Drs. Meibohm and Gabrielsson have offered for the last seven years in the United States. Further information on that course can be found at www.PKPDofProteinTherapeutics.com
