Cognigen Presents Posters at PAGE Meeting

Ted Grasela, president and CEO of Cognigen Corporation, presented 2 posters at the 18th Annual Population Approach Group in Europe (PAGE) meeting in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Improving the Efficiency and Ensuring the Quality of Data Assembly for Pharmacometric Analysis outlines the process that Cognigen Corporation used to formalize requirements specification forms for data assembly. These specification forms have improved the consistency, reliability, timeliness, and quality of the datasets that Cognigen prepares for NONMEM analyses.

Modeling and Simulation Approach to Pediatric Drug Development demonstrates how a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling and simulation approach to setting pediatric drug doses can be used if a clear exposure-response relationship for safety and efficacy endpoints has been established in adults. This approach may support the objectives of the EU Pediatric Regulation (1).

The PAGE 2009 meeting, hosted by the St. Petersburg Pavlov State Medical University, was held at the Hotel St. Petersburg from June 23 to 26, 2009. PAGE is a group of individuals with a common interest in data analysis using the population approach. Each year the meeting is held in June at a different European location.
