Pharsight Makes Strong Contribution to Inaugural American Conference on Pharmacometrics

Pharsight Scientists Will Present at First Joint U.S. National Modeling and

Simulation Meeting on March 11-12, 2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Mar. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced its broad-based participation at the inaugural meeting of the American Conference on Pharmacometrics (ACoP). Pharsight scientists will make a total of 10 scientific contributions at this groundbreaking event, which will be held in Tucson, Arizona at the Westward Look Resort from March 9-12, 2008.

"This meeting illustrates the impact of pharmacometrics on the drug development process," said Shawn O'Connor, president, CEO, and chairman of Pharsight. "Pharmacometrics has been recognized by the FDA for improving new drug approval and labeling decisions, and academia and industry have responded by adding significant numbers to their staff in this area. We are delighted to recognize the significant growth of this profession by sponsoring its first, dedicated national conference."

Pharsight scientists will present on a range of modeling and simulation subject areas, such as drug-disease modeling, clinical utility modeling, and state-of-the-art tools and techniques, during two plenary conference sessions and at three focused poster sessions, including:
-- Model-Based Literature Meta-Analysis: Virtues and Limitations. Dr.

Farkad Ezzet, senior scientist, Strategic Consulting Services, will

present as part of a dedicated conference session on altering disease

progression. Dr. Ezzet's presentation will outline how model-based

approaches for combining proprietary data on a specific compound with

literature data on its likely competitors can provide insight into

disease progression, effectiveness of current marketed therapies, and

tools for exploring the potential of new treatments.

-- Dosing Strategies of Drugs with Narrow Therapeutic Windows: A Simple

Approach to Determine Trade-off Between Efficacy and Toxicity. As part

of a poster session on pharmacometric tools and techniques, Dr. Samer

Mouksassi, associate scientist, Reporting and Analysis Services, will

describe research on how modeling and simulation methods have been

used to determine trade-offs between efficacy and toxicity in order to

design better dosing strategies.

"We look forward to sharing examples of strategic applications of modeling and simulation with industry colleagues and to discussing specific elements of our technology vision for the future of model-based drug development," added Mr. O'Connor.

A complete listing of Pharsight's ACoP presentations and poster contributions is available at

The ACoP is organized and delivered by a cross-section of industry, academic and regulatory experts in the interdisciplinary science of pharmacometrics who also represent several regional U.S. modeling and simulation meetings and associations. Additional information about ACoP can be found at
