 Simcyp, the leader in mechanistic *in vitro* – *in vivo* extrapolation
(IVIVE) of pharmacokinetics invites you to register for the well-establishe=
and renowned:

*Intensive course: ‘Concepts and Applications of Predicting ADME,
Pharmacokinetics and Population Variability’ *

*17th – 21st May 2010*

*Princeton, New Jersey, USA*

The course is comprised of lectures, delivered by leading experts in each
field of ADME, interspersed with interactive workshops centred around
practical examples demonstrating how *in vitro *data generated during drug
development can be used to predict:

   - Metabolic drug clearance (CL)
   - Metabolic drug-drug interactions (DDIs)
   - Gut first-pass metabolism
   - Oral drug absorption incorporating food effects and the impact of
   dosage form
   - Effect of transporters and enterohepatic recirculation on kinetics
   - Drug distribution to different organs
   - Population variability in drug concentration-time profiles
   - Variation in kinetics in specific populations (paediatrics, ethnic
   groups, various disease populations)
   - Time-course of drug in plasma that fits observed clinical data
   (achieved using fitting modules within physiologically-based
   pharmacokinetics (PBPK) models combined with drug specific in

The main emphasis is on using data generated in pre-clinical stages to
understand the kinetic behaviour of drugs in various target populations.
This informs decisions on the conduct and optimal design of clinical studie=
with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of submissions for regulator=

The complete course runs from 17th – 21st May at the Nassau Inn, Princeto=
NJ. Delegates may also choose to register for part of the course:

*Part I: *17th – 19th May 2010
*Part II: *19th – 21st May 2010
