2 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia What are the determinants of “getting the dose right”? The first question that needs to be addressed is “What outcome is desired”? Multiple outcomes are reasonable -Good clinical outcome -Good microbiological outcome -Suppression of resistance -Minimization of concentration-related toxicities

3 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia Dose choice becomes an issue in the Phase-I time frame (actually earlier, but the proper data becomes available at this time) Because of this, the choice of outcome is somewhat limited – Clinical outcome cannot, at this time, be an outcome measure The most common measure, then, is microbiological outcome determined from in vitro or animal models

5 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia Once a target exposure is chosen, what other pieces of information are required? -Population PK: this quantifies the variability in how the drug dose is handled by a population -MIC distribution for the target pathogens: this quantifies how the MIC will vary -Protein binding: in general, only free drug is microbiologically active

6 Now we can evaluate how well a specific drug dose will attain the desired target This evaluation will be done employing Monte Carlo simulation Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia

7 P aeruginosa Expectation = 65.6% E cloacae Expectation = 88.3%

8 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia What are the questions now? -Was the target correct? -Is the target attainment rate adequate? The target [1 log 10 (CFU/g) decline] is reasonably conservative, but one must be careful about the infection site The answer to the second question depends on the patient and the consequences of being wrong: -G-penic patient vs uncomplicated SSTI -Mother vs Mother-In-Law

9 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia What now? Now it is important to recapitulate the analysis in real patients in the Phase I/II environment Why? –The PK is determined in a target population –Correlation with preclinical animal data provides near certainty of “no surprises” in Phase III –“real world” organisms are seen and can be gauged against the original MIC distributions –Monte Carlo simulations can be re-calculated with “real” data

21 Journal of Clinical Investigation 2003;112:

22 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia In this experiment, a dose was selected to generate an exposure that would prevent emergence of resistance As this was at the limit of detection, the measured population sometimes had “less than assay detectable” for the colony count These were plotted at the detection limit Journal of Clinical Investigation 2003;112:

23 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia We were able to determine how the overall (sensitive plus resistant) population responds to pressure from this fluoroquinolone More importantly, we were able to model the resistant subpopulation and choose a dose based on simulation to suppress the resistant mutants The prospective validation demonstrated that the doses chosen to encourage and suppress the resistant mutants did, indeed, work

24 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia What about having a high probability of attaining a good outcome while not encumbering the patient with a high probability of a concentration-related toxicity? For this we will examine aminoglycosides, where we have concentration-effect and concentration-toxicity probability relationships

29 Getting the Dose Right The View from Academia-Conclusions Why go through all this mathematical *!$# ? -Because, at the end of the therapy is a patient, who would appreciate getting better without toxicity -Also, because choosing the dose correctly allows trials with anti-infectives to have the lowest Phase III failure rate of ANY therapeutic area
