A semicompartmental modeling approach for pharmacodynamic data assessment
- 76 Downloads
A new method is proposed for modeling the temporal aspects of the pharmacodynamic-pharmacokinetic relationship of drugs. A semicompartmental solution to the effect-site link model of Sheiner et al. (1) formed the basis for this new approach. This semicompartmental solution does not require the specification of a compartmental model for the pharmacokinetic response and may offer an advantage when model misspecification is present in using standard compartmental models. A Monte Carlo simulation study was conducted to evaluate the performance of the semicompartmental modeling approach. This method is easily implemented in standard nonlinear regression packages.
