Day 1 – 18 Oct 2023

09.30 – 12:30

Workshops (free for members, needs to be booked separately, first come-first served basis):

In this 3-hour workshop, the general concepts of developing a PBPK model will be reviewed, followed by an in-depth focus on the use of PBPK modeling for pediatric simulation. The aim will be to understand the difference between adult and pediatric simulations, highlighting the points of attention to ensure quality predictions. Examples will be provided, and hands-on exercises performed.

Jointly organized by STP-PT (Suivi Thérapeutique Pharmacologique & Personnalisation des Traitements) unit of the SFPT (Société Française de Pharmacologie et de Thérapeutique), more information to come

Translation of Drug-Drug-Interaction from In-Vitro to In-Vivo

Chairs: Olivier Nicolas (Sanofi), Jeremy Perrier (PhinC), Yannick Parmentier (Servier)
Microphysiological systems aim to mimic the complex structure, microenvironment and physiological functions of human organs, so it has gradually become an ideal tool for in vitro ADMET, drug-drug-interaction and pharmacological studies. The aim of the session is to highlight the advantages of those models and how to translate the data generated to the human situation in particular for DDI predictions.

Immunogenicity: Challenges and Opportunities for the Development of Biotherapeutics

Chair: Madani Rachid (Sandoz)

Immunogenicity presents a major hurdle for the development of biotherapeutics as it can impair both efficacy and safety of the treatment. This lecture will introduce the audience to the concept of immunogenicity and will discuss the specific challenges it provides for the development of biologics. It will also review novel approaches to anticipate, predict and prevent the formation of anti-drug antibodies.

New Approaches in PK Modelling and QSP of Biologics

Chairs: Maxime Le Merdy (Simulations Plus), Jeremy Perrier (PhinC), Carla Troisi, Sarah Lobet (Tours University), Isabelle Deprez (Certara)
The world of Biologics is expanding with new entities and new targets, thus requiring new approaches to understand the PK and interactions with its biological environment.
This session will present how modelling is used to assess new targets and support the development of new biological drugs.

Spotlighting on Bioanalytical Data for Biologics PK Interpretation

Chairs: Christine Bain (Active Biomarkers), Madeleine Coimbra (Sanofi), Yannick Parmentier (Servier)
Understanding the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of biologic therapeutics, and the bioanalytical methods they rely on, is key to build an optimal drug development plan. As the development of the drug progresses, so do the methods used for bioanalysis. The reliability of the bioanalytical results is a prerequisite for correct interpretation of PK profiles. Therefore, for pivotal nonclinical and clinical studies, it is essential to employ well-characterized and fully validated bioanalytical methods to yield accurate and reliable results. This session will provide an overview of the methodologies and illustrate the topic with a few examples from in-vivo preclinical cases
to clinical settings.
