Y.Tanigawara Human PK/PD, especially in patients, are important drug information. PK/PD provide a scientific framework for dose/dosage regimen vs concentrations vs response relationships. Factors affecting PK/PD are considered when dose is individualized for special populations such as geriatrics and organ dysfunction. PK/PD can be a “bridging” tool for introducing to new indications, new dosage forms, or new populations. Why PK/PD are needed.
Development Phases and Types of Study (ICH E8) IIIIIIVI Phases of Development Therapeutic Use Therapeutic Confirmatory Therapeutic Exploratory Human Pharmacology PK or PK/PD study in Patients
Y.Tanigawara Factors That Can Cause the Individual Variability in Drug Response Age Gender Combination drugs Liver function Kidney function Genotype Body weight Possible Factors ↓ Fixed effects Influence by unknown factors ↓ Random effects Population PK/PD Analysis by Mixed Effect Model Plasma proteins Race etc.
Y.Tanigawara Population Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) describe typical profiles of PK/PD in a target population (patients that a drug is applied). describe magnitudes of inter- and intra-individual variability. describe factors that can affect the PK/PD of a drug (genetic, physiological, pathological, environmental). provide dosing guidance for special populations such as geriatrics, pediatrics, organ dysfunction, drug interactions, genetic deficiency of a particular enzyme... etc. provide a scientific basis for individualization of dosage regimen. can be studied based upon sparsely sampled data. → Feasible method to obtain patient data.

Y.Tanigawara Bridging Study - ICH E5 - A supplemental study performed in the new region to provide pharmacodynamic or clinical data on efficacy, safety, dosage and dose regimen in the new region that will allow extrapolation of the foreign clinical data package to the new region. Such studies could include further pharmacokinetic information. Definition of not only PK but also PD and dose- response early in the development program may facilitate the determination of the need for, and nature of, any requisite bridging data.
Y.Tanigawara Complete Clinical Data Package with Bridging: Typical Framework PK/PD Bridging Data Package New RegionOriginal Region Counterparts for the Bridging Study Bridging Study Confirmatory Studies Long-term Studies Special Populations Extrapolation of the foreign clinical data
Y.Tanigawara Interpretation of PK Data (1) Clinical PK data in Japanese are essential for the complete clinical data package. If there is a difference… Conduct a population PK analysis to gain an insight into the observed ethnic difference. It might be caused due to different body sizes between Japanese and Caucasian. It might be caused by different enzymatic activity. It might be a consequence of different food conditions (low fat, high fat, fasted, non-fasted). Explainable … ?
Y.Tanigawara Use of Population PK to determine factors affecting PK Tatami et al. ISSX, JSSX Apparent difference between Japanese and Caucasian resulted from the different food condition. Plasma concentration (ng/mL) Japan (Fed) US+EU (Fasted) Difference between Trials Time (hr) Effect of Food Time (hr) Plasma concentration (ng/mL) Fasted condition Fed condition
Y.Tanigawara Interpretation of PK Data (2) Clinical PK data in Japanese are essential for the complete clinical data package. If there is a PK difference… How much PK difference impacts on clinical efficacy and safety. Need to modify dose? Require a PK/PD or dose-response relationship to consider the influence of PK difference. Secondary use of a BE criteria when PK/PD data are absent.
Y.Tanigawara Steep PD is Sensitive to PK Difference. Response Exposure (PK) 30% 3% 30%
Y.Tanigawara Pharmacogenomics Genetic polymorphisms of drug metabolizing enzymes Influences of genotype are attributed to individual variability, rather than racial difference. Altered PK Altered PD Altered Efficacy/Safety profiles

Y.Tanigawara Summary PK/PD provides a scientific basis for dose range finding. Population PK/PD analysis coupled with the sparse blood sampling is an important strategy for drug development. Pharmacogenomics will be a useful approach for targeting patient population.
