Pharsight Invited to Present on Oncology Modeling and Simulation at Quantitative Pharmacology Symposium in China
Date:10/22/2007

Dr. Rene Bruno Will Present on the Value of Clinical Trial Simulations to

Predict Efficacy and Survival Benefit of Anticancer Agents

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that Rene Bruno, Ph.D., managing director, Strategic Consulting Services, Europe, has been invited to speak to academics, regulators, and members of the Chinese pharmaceutical industry attending the International Symposium in Quantitative Pharmacology in Drug Development and Regulation. The symposium will be held in Nanjing China at the International Conference Hotel from October 29-31, 2007.

Dr. Bruno will join other leading experts from industry, government and academia in a scientific program that will discuss the latest methodologies in pharmacometrics, focusing on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling and simulation in drug development, regulation and clinical applications. The symposium will also provide a forum for scientific discussion and collaborative exchange on model-based approaches in drug development. Dr. Bruno's presentation, discussing a model-based approach to support drug development in oncology, will be part of a session focusing on the theory and applications of model-based drug development. The presentation, entitled "Clinical Trial Simulations to Predict Efficacy and Survival Benefit of Anticancer Agents", will take place on October 29, 2007. Dr. Bruno also serves on the symposium's international advisory committee.

"Model-based drug development continues to grow as a value-added method for optimizing decisions in the drug development process," said Shawn O'Connor, president, CEO, and chairman of Pharsight. "Drug development is benefiting from the quantitative application of drug-disease models to simulate expected clinical responses of new compounds, to support critical program strategies and enhance study design decisions. Pharsight is pleased to participate at this important international symposium, to discuss opportunities and challenges for global drug development and approval in the rapidly-growing Chinese pharmaceutical industry, and to exchange information with industry colleagues on the strategic use of modeling and simulation."
