  • Open communication between regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical companies, universities, and software providers will help identify new M&S applications:
    • Food effect modeling
    • Disease state populations
    • Oral/non-oral delivery of drug products – virtual BE
  • FDA is increasing funding to scientists from across the world to
    ensure that the regulatory review of new chemical entities
    (NCEs) and generic drugs is based on the best available science

    • Will other regulatory agencies follow?
  • FDA and EMA have developed first guidance documents
    for the application of PBPK simulation in submissions.
