Bayer Tech Partners with CHOP on Software for Personalized Drug Dosing

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Bayer Technology Services is collaborating with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on a research project to develop individualized drug therapies for children, the company said today.
BTS will integrate its PK-Sim pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling and simulation techniques with CHOP’s “Pediatric Knowledgebase” -- an initiative to create a user-friendly computer interface that will present doctors with patient information and dosing history and use simulations to predict “expected trends in drug plasma concentrations,” the company said.
The end result will allow pediatricians to make drug dosing decisions that are tailored to each patient, BTS said.
The collaboration will “aim to demonstrate the usefulness of physiology-based modeling in guiding dosing decisions.” said Jörg Lippert, Head of the Systems Biology Group of BTS, in a statement.
