September 11, Basel, Germany

10th Basel M&S Seminar, Optimal design strategies in drug development

Dose selection for late clinical stage is one of the key challenges in drug development. This is usually done via conventional designs of dose-ranging studies where different doses are tested against placebo to determine which dose works best. However, for optimal dose selection a robust dose – exposure – response relationship needs to be established in early stage. Such relationship could be characterized using pharmacometric models and optimal designs with informative pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) data.

The main objective of this Basel M&S meeting is to illustrate with actual examples the use and the value of optimal design approaches, to discuss the current status and limitation of those approaches as well as to identify potential future directions.

The morning meeting will be followed by the annual PODE (Population Optimum Design of Experiments) workshop focusing on the theory of optimum experimental design for non-linear mixed effects models and its applications in drug development (

Several DDMoRe members are presenting DDMoRe related work at this seminar.
