Simulations Plus, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLP), a leading provider of simulation and modeling software for pharmaceutical discovery and development, announced that its GastroPlus™ software for simulation of oral absorption, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics was the top-rated software in a comparison study performed by Pfizer (NYSE: PFE).

Woltosz continued: “We are extremely happy to report that GastroPlus was ranked first in accuracy in both areas, while none of the other methods was ranked second in both areas. The then-current Pfizer method was second in accuracy for predicting the different oral doses, while another commercial package was second for predicting intravenous doses (but the same package was second to last for oral doses). We believe this speaks to the rigorous scientific approach our team has taken as well as the tremendous partnerships we have had with industry scientists who have provided excellent feedback and access to data to enable us to constantly update and improve the mathematical models and the user interface employed in GastroPlus.”
