NMUSERS-modeling dose and response

From: Varsha Mehta <varsham>

I have a dataset where an anticoagulant has been administered and the =
response measured as unils/mL. Due to the inherent difficulty associated =
with measuring plasma concentrations of this drug no such measurements are =
available. I am interested in determining the population PK of this agent =
and connecting the dose size to response.

Should I be using a linked PK-PD model? Can I use the response values in =
u/mL instead of plasma concentrations? Which model in the NONMEM library =
should I start with ADVAN 5 or 6?

Thanks in advance!!
