2 General Model of Hematopiesis
From Kaushansky, N. Engl. J. Med. 354:2034 (2006).

3 Regulation of Erythropoiesis
Red blood cells (O2-capacity, arterial pO2) pO2-dependent production Kidney Erythropoietin (EPO) Bone marrow + Wolber and Jelkmann., News Physiol. Sci. 17: 6 (2002)

4 Erythropoietin  EPO is a 30.4 kD glycoprotein responsible for survival, proliferation, and maturation of erythroid cells.  EPO is produced by peritubal cells in the kidneys in response to tissue hypoxia.  Indications for rHuEPO: - Anemia of chronic renal failure - Chemotherapy induced anemia - Anemia of prematurity

5 Erythropoietin Receptor
 EPOR is a 185 kD member of the class 1 cytokine receptor superfamily.  Expressed on erythroid progenitor cells, epicardium, neurons, liver, gut, endothelium.  Upon binding to EPO homodimerizes and activates JAK2 tyrosine kinase.  EPO-EPOR complex is internalized and degraded by the endosome-lysosome pathway.  KD ~ pM  Internalization rate ~ 0.7 h-1  receptors per erythroid cell Sawyer et al., JBC 262: 5554 (1987); Broudy et al., Blood 77: 2583 (1991)

6 rHuEPO Pharmacokinetics
Time (hr) 80 160 240 320 400 rHuEPO concentration (IU/l) 1 10 100 1000 10000 300 IU/kg 600 IU/kg 1200 IU/kg 2400 IU/kg SC IV Distribution: Vd = 3-5 L.  Moderate nonlinear clearance: t1/2 = 4-11 hr.  Minimal renal and hepatic clearance.  Receptor binding, internalization, and degradation in bone marrow. Dose dependent bioavailability: F = Slow absorption from the injection site: flip-flop kinetics. Flaharty et al., Clin. Pharmacol. Ther. 47: (1990). Ramakrishnan et al., J. Clin. Pharmacol. 44: (2004).

7 rHuEPO Pharmacodynamics
rHuEPO was administered SC to healthy subjects 150 IU/kg t.i.w for four weeks. rHuEPO pharmacodynamic responses Reticuloctyte count RBC Hemoglobin concentration Krzyzanski et al., EJPS 26: (2005).

11 Erythropoietic Cascade

12 Lifespan Distribution
Cell lifespan - time a cell remains in the population Mean lifespan-population mean of the lifespan distribution

13 Lifespan Controlled Cell Loss
Point Lifespan Distribution: (t) = (t-TR) (kin* )(t) = kin(t-TR)

14 Basic Model: Stimulation of kin
Baseline: R0 = kin·TR Krzyzanski and Jusko, JPB 27: 467 (1999).

15 PK/PD of rHuEPO in Rats Mean serum rHuEPO concentrations, reticulocyte, and hemoglobin levels following IV bolus administration of 10, 100, 450, 1350, and 4050 IU/kg in rats. Woo et al., JPP 34: (2007).

21 Residual Error Variance Model
Parameter estimates were obtained by minimizing the -2LL objective function in ADAPT II. Woo et al., JPP 34: (2007).

23 Numerical Challenges Stiffness: Receptor binding (kon, R0) is typically much faster than distribution and elimination (kel,ktp,kpt). Delay differential equations: Lifespan based PD model requires a DDE solver.

24 Parameter Estimability
Large number of model parameters. Observable data (blood compartments) are poorly informative about processes occurring in the bone marrow: receptor binding, cell maturation, negative feedback. Large values of SE of corresponding parameter estimates, correlations, singularity of covariance matrix. Necessary reduction of the number of model parameters: - fixing at known physiological values. - simplifying assumptions: quasi steady-state etc.

25 Conclusions rHuEPO nonlinear PK can be explained by receptor mediated disposition. PD response is significantly delayed with respect to PK exposure. PK/PD model exhibits stiffness and requires DDE solver. System large dimension and data based on blood measurements lead to parameter estimability problems.
