MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that Helen Kastrissios, Ph.D., senior scientist, Pharsight Strategic Consulting Services, has been invited to present to clinical and regulatory professionals attending the Association of Regulatory and Clinical Scientists (ARCS) 17th Annual Congress. The Congress will be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Sydney, Australia from May 28-30, 2008. Dr. Kastrissios will present on May 30, joining other leading experts from the pharmaceutical industry and academia in a session on clinical applications of pharmacodynamic modeling in drug development.

Dr. Kastrissios' presentation, entitled "Communicating the Value of Pharmacodynamic Modeling in Drug Development," will include several case studies describing how predictive drug-disease models have been used to support dose selection, compare the product profile of a new drug versus marketed competitors utilizing public-source literature data, and communicate model-based results to clinical project teams to support program decision- making.

"Model-based drug development has significant value for optimizing drug therapy and for improving the confidence of drug development decisions," said Shawn O'Connor, president, CEO, and chairman of Pharsight. "Drug development teams can benefit 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 the ARCS Congress, where we look forward to sharing our perspective with industry colleagues on the strategic use of modeling and simulation to improve drug development knowledge, productivity and decision- making."
