Pharsight to Present on Oncology Modeling and Simulation at PAGE Annual Meeting
Date:6/12/2008

Dr. Laurent Claret Will Present Case Studies on the Value of Drug-Disease Modeling to Predict Efficacy and Survival Benefits of Anticancer Agents

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (Nasdaq: PHST), a leading provider of software, strategic consulting, and regulatory services for optimizing clinical drug development, today announced that Laurent Claret, Ph.D., senior scientist, Pharsight Strategic Consulting Services, will speak to members of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries attending the Population Approach Group in Europe (PAGE) 17th Annual Meeting. The PAGE meeting will be held at the Medical School of Marseille in Marseilles, France from June 18-20, 2008.

Dr. Claret will present two oncology case studies during a dedicated conference session on applications in model-based development:

-- June 18: A Modeling Framework to Simulate Xeloda Dose Intensity and

Survival in Colorectal Cancer. Dr. Claret will present this case study

as part of an oral conference session on the strategic use of modeling

and simulation in oncology. The session will include applied examples

of drug-disease modeling and will describe research on how

quantitative, model-based approaches have been used to support dosing

decisions of anticancer therapies in clinical practice. Rene Bruno,

Ph.D., managing director, Pharsight Strategic Consulting Services,

Europe, serves as conference chair for the oncology session.

-- June 19: Modeling and Simulation to Assess the Use of Change in Tumor

Size as Primary Endpoint in Phase II Studies in Oncology. Dr. Claret

will present this case study in collaboration with Pharsight's client,

a global pharmaceutical company, as part of a poster session on

model-based applications in oncology. The session will describe

research on a number of model-based approaches to support drug

development in oncology, including tumor progression modeling and

clinical trial simulations to predict efficacy and survival benefit of

anticancer agents.

Dr. Claret and Dr. Bruno also contributed to a model-based analysis of tumor size measurements obtained in clinical oncology studies involving combination chemotherapy, as part of an ongoing collaboration between Pharsight and the University of Aix-Marseille School of Pharmacy. This analysis will be presented by Pharsight colleagues at the University of Aix-Marseille as part of the PAGE poster session on model-based applications in oncology.

"Model-based drug development continues to show value for enhancing understanding of complex diseases in quantitative terms, and for improving the confidence of drug development decisions," said Shawn O'Connor, president, CEO, and chairman of Pharsight. "Application of drug-disease models to simulate expected clinical response of new anticancer therapies can support critical oncology program strategies, particularly in light of the high failure rate in late-stage trials. The use of predictive drug-disease models can serve as a quantitative framework to support programmatic decision-making and enhance study design decisions. Pharsight is pleased to continue its active participation at the PAGE Annual Meeting, this year as a main conference sponsor, and we look forward to sharing our experience with industry colleagues and fellow practitioners of modeling and simulation."
