Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Pre-clinical assessment of a novel investigational product should include an evaluation of the compounds’ pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) profile. This information, combined with toxicology studies, is crucial for deciding dosage regimens. New approaches, such as Minimal Anticipated Biological Effect Level (MABEL), can inform go/no-go decisions for additional clinical research.
In this webinar, a case study using the immunotherapeutic small molecule VTX-2337, will help to show how this preclinical evaluation can be done effectively. VTX-2337 is a potent and selective small molecule (<500 MW) TLR8 agonist that activates myeloid dendritic cells, monocytes and NK cells to produce both chemokines and Th1 polarizing cytokines, including TNFa, IL-12 and IFN?.
The presenter, Dr. Gregory Dietsch, Vice President of Research at VentiRx Pharmaceuticals, will discuss translating preclinical pharmacology to clinical activity with Myriad RBM’s Inflammation MAP.
