Dear all,

Uppsala Pharmacometrics with Mats Karlsson and colleagues will give a 3-day
course on Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic modeling of continuous and
categorical data in NONMEM 7 for intermediate and advanced users from 6th to
8th of June in Berlin, Germany, as a satellite meeting before PAGE 2010. The
course presents modeling strategies, techniques and implementations (using
NONMEM 7) for the handling of PK-PD information in population models. PD
models for continuous data as well as binary, ordered categorical, count and
time to event data will be discussed. The course will include explanations
and comparisons (with respect to PK-PD modeling) of the different estimation
methods available in NONMEM 7. Model diagnostics for PK-PD models including
diagnostics for the new estimation methods offered in NONMEM 7 will also be
covered. The course will consist of both lectures and hands-on computer
exercises using NONMEM 7, PsN and Xpose 4. The participants will be provided
with large library of NONMEM code as well as self-instructive material for
further studies and exploration of examples for a wide range of PKPD models
applied in different disease areas.


A prerequisite for the course is experience with performing NONMEM analyses
and basic knowledge of PK/PD models.
