Calvagone is a consulting company in pharmacometrics services that will help our clients to address their key drug development. The team is composed of people with a wide experience in different areas like; programming, mathematics, pharmacology, pharmacometrics and drug development.
Pharmacometrics is defined as the science that quantifies
drug, disease and trial information to aid efficient drug development
and/or regulatory decisions. Drug models describe the relationship
between exposure (or pharmacokinetics), response (or pharmacodynamics) for
both desired and undesired effects, and individual patient characteristics.
Disease models describe the relationship between biomarkers and clinical
outcomes, time course of disease and placebo effects. The trial models describe
the inclusion/exclusion criteria, patient discontinuation and adherence.
