Department OverviewClinical Pharmacology and Pharmacometrics

The Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacometrics Organization (CPPM) leads the strategy, generation/analyses/interpretations/reporting of data and communications/agreements with global regulatory agencies in the areas of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, Exposure-Response and Biopharmaceutics.

The organization supports all phases of pharmaceutical research and development from Discovery to Development to On Market Support for all new molecular entities and marketed products in all therapeutic areas (antiviral, immunoscience, neuroscience, pain, metabolic disease, men and women’s health,renal disease and oncology).

The organization is responsible for defining the relationship between drug exposure (e.g., concentrations in blood) and efficacy measures (primary and/or secondary clinical outcomes or biomarkers) to select the optimal dose and dosing intervals. CPPM is also responsible for definingthe relationship between drug exposure and safety measures (clinical outcomesor biomarkers (e.g., QTc)) to identify populations that may be at risk ofincreased toxicity or decreased tolerability. CPPM performs the selection, design and interpretation of all Phase I studies including first in human, bioavailability/ bioequivalence/food effect, drug interaction, pilot/definitive cardiovascular (QTc), special population, pharmacogenetic and immunogenicity studies.

The organization provides critical support for conducting technical due diligence of new business opportunities (bothin-licensing and out-licensing) by assessing probability of success for achieving Target Product Profile (TPP). CPPM contributes to responses to defend our intellectual properties and extension of patent protection, provides critical support for life-cycle management of marketed products, responds to questions from post-marketing safety, legal, pharmaceutical manufacturing and regulatory for marketed products world-wide, and publication of scientific information in patents and manuscripts.
