Simcyp Simulator Helps Optimize Drug Dosing in Adults & Adolescents with Orphan Disease

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) affects about 400,000 patients worldwide. Current therapy for CAH uses a variety of generic glucocorticoid steroids (including hydrocortisone, dexamethasone, prednisolone, and prednisone in the US) with no standard treatment regimen. The cortisol deficiency and over-production of male sex hormones caused by CAH can lead to increased mortality, infertility, and sexual development … Continued

Using Simcyp Simulator to Determine DDI Liability of Guanfacine in Children

Guanfacine (Intuniv® XR) extended release (GXR) is an orally administered, selective alpha2A-adrenergic receptor agonist, non-stimulant treatment for children and adolescents with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Guanfacine is primarily metabolized by the CYP3A4 enzyme. Thus, it was important to evaluate the drug-drug interaction (DDI) liability perpetrated by strong inhibitors and inducers of CYP3A4. Using data from … Continued

Simcyp’s Age-Defining Feature Facilitates Everolimus Dosing in Neonates

Everolimus (Afinitor®) was recently approved as adjunctive therapy for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC)-associated partial seizures in ages 2 and older. Unlike many other therapies for treating TSC-associated seizures, everolimus addresses the underlying pathophysiology of TSC. As TSC-associated seizures can also affect children aged between 6 months and 2 years, a modeling and simulation approach that … Continued
