Dear All,Back to the Top
I am new to Pharmacokinetics. I have read some research articles regarding
Population Pharmacokinetics and also PBPK modelling.I could not get any
clearcut idea about their use and application.
in this regard any body can suggest me any review articles or textbooks
for the same.thank you in advance.bye.

For Physiological-Toxicokinetic modelling there is a whole issue ofBack to the Top
Toxicology Letters devoted to this - volume 138 (nos.1-2), 2003, which is an
excellent starting point. This is about general chemical toxicity though,
Dear Santosh:Back to the Top
Population PK/PD modeling is what one usually uses to describe the
behavior of drugs these days, rather than linear or nonlinear regression,
for example. It is much more efficient and capable, and makes much better
use of the information contained in the data analyzed.
There are 2 basic types of approach to the problem - parametric and
nonparametric. Both use a structural model based on differential equations,
and both have parameters. The parametric approach describes these
parameters in terms of the other parameters that describe the shape of the
normal Gaussian curve, namely means and variances.
The nonparametric approach is not limited to that, and instead computes
the most likely entire distribution of the parameter values given the data
and the weighting scheme used, without making any assumptions about its
shape, such as normal, lognormal, etc. It also computes means and variances.
You might look at "Applications of Pharmacokinetic Principles in Drug
Development", edited by Rajesh Krishna, Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers,
ISBN 0-306-47766-1, 2003. It has a chapter on Population Pharmacokinetic
and Pharmacodynamic Modeling, pages 373-404. It also has a comparison of
the two approaches, with their various strengths and weaknesses.
You might also ask why one does this. One important reason is to develop
the best dosage regimen possible. Here the two approaches really differ, as
with the nonparametric approach one can estimate the expected degree of
precision (weighted squared error) with which a dosage regimen will fail to
hit its desired target goal(s). It does this using "multiple model" dosage
design, which makes essentially optimal mathematical used of all available
information in the population model and in whatever serum concentrations
have been obtained from an individual patient to date. This multiple model
Bayesian adaptive control of dosage regimens appears to us to offer the
best and most precise dosage regimens currently available. A beta version
of this clinical software can be downloaded from www.lapk.org/beta. The
method is also described in the same book, in "Optimizing Individualized
Dosage Regimens of Potentially Toxic Drugs", pages 477-529.
You might also go to our web site www.lapk.org and click around under the
various topics there.
