Simcyp launches "virtual lab rat" simulator

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Simcyp, a UK-based developer of platforms for pharmacokinetic modelling and simulation in virtual populations, has launched a "virtual lab rat" for the in silico prediction of drug kinetics. Symcyp Rat 2008 will model how compounds are absorbed, distributed, metabolised and excreted by the body, providing an insight into how medicines might behave in practice. The system can mimic real-life experimental scenarios, including whether test animals are fed at the time of dosing and the amount of fluid that is administered with an oral dose, Professor Amin Rostami-Hodjegan, Simcyp's director of R&D, said. The simulator contains databases of commonly used drugs which allow the properties of new medicines to be compared with those that are already available.
