EAVPT precongress VETCAST Workshops
22 and 23 June 2018
“Tawerna” room at the hotel Tumski, Wroclaw - Poland
- The overall objective of Workshop is to give attendees a broad overview of the main tools (basic and more advanced) that will be used by VETCAST to determine clinical breakpoints.
- The Workshop is targeted at individuals already possessing a basic understanding of PK and PD concepts, including basic population PK analysis and who expect to be involved in some aspect of data analysis to establish clinical breakpoints.
- The course will comprise a series of lectures and practical exercises, which delegates will solve utilizing to computer software Phoenix/WinNonlin®
- The goal of the second day is to introduce attendees to more complex approaches to modeling pharmacokinetic data that allow for capturing intra- and inter-individual variability, as well as tissue-specific dosimetry. These approaches will be demonstrated in commercially available software packages such as Berkley Madonna and R, Phoenix WinNonlin and Monolix.
- Prior to the Workshop (a few weeks in advance) , you will be provided with educational licences to download, if required, Phoenix® version 8 onto your personal laptop (which you will bring to the Workshop). You will be encouraged to familiarise yourself with this software before attending the Workshop, if it is new to you.
- It is required that attendees will: (1) have appropriate skills in using Excel; (2) possess a pocket calculator with exponential and logarithmic functions and (3) be familiar with basic statistical methods. Attendees do not have to be skilled mathematicians to benefit from the course but they will be expected to work with exponential equations.
