RE: Simultaneous vs sequential for modeling parent AND metabolites in pop PK

Hello Alan

I have used a sequential approach in the past as the model was more
stable with lesser run time.

metabolites in pop PK

Dear All,

I know this is an old topic but would like to see the statistics.

When you have to develop a pop PK model for both parent and active
metabolites, which approach do you prefer or have you used most:
simultaneous or sequential? Which way do you think is more scientific? I
heard comments saying that the simultaneous approach is not scientific.

Thanks,

Alan
