Mechanistic prediction of food effects for Compound A tablet using PBPK model

Publication: Saudi J Biol Sci

Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling has been extensively used to study the factors of effect drug absorption, distribution, metabolize and extraction progress in human. In this study, Compound A(CPD A) is a BCS Class II drug, which has been extensive applied in clinical as lipid-lowering drug, administered orally after food, they displayed positive food effects in human, A PBPK model was built to mechanistic investigate the food effect of CPD A tablet in our study. By using gastroplus™ software, the PBPK models accurately predicted the results of food effects and predicted data were within 2-fold error of the observed results. The PBPK model mechanistic illuminated the changes of pharmacokinetic values for the positive food effects of the compound in human. Here in, the PBPK modeling which were combined with ACAT absorption models in it, successfully simulated the food effect in human of the drug. The simulation results were proved that PBPK model can be able to serve as a potential tool to predict the food effect on certain oral drugs.
