Join us on Wednesday, May 27 from 1:00pm – 2:15pm EST for our first webinar on allometric scaling in drug development. Nuventra’s Senior Consultant and former FDA Reviewer, Iftekhar Mahmood, Ph.D., will lead the 1-hour session titled, “Allometric Scaling: Common Misconceptions During Drug Development.”

This webinar will cover an introduction of allometric scaling as well as extrapolation from animals to humans for predicting pharmacokinetic (PK) data and dose selection. At the end of this webinar attendees should have a better understanding of:

  • Allometry and the nature of allometric exponents
  • Dose projection based on the predicted PK parameters in humans
  • Appropriate application of the allometric exponents to improve the prediction of PK parameters in humans from animal PK
