Simcyp provides platforms for the modelling and simulation of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in virtual human populations and virtual laboratory animals. The company’s main product the ‘Simcyp Population-based Simulator’ is used by the majority of the world’s global pharmaceutical companies (including Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca). The technology allows pharmaceutical researchers to predict in vivo outcomes from routinely generated in vitro data, to fit Simcyp models to observed clinical data and to assess inter-individual variability through ‘real-life’ simulations. This informs decision-making in drug development. Recent advances in Simcyp’s technology include the ability to evaluate drug-drug interactions involving therapeutic proteins – an important development due to the increasing use of biologics and their prominence in multi-drug therapies.
Simcyp also provides expert consultancy services, runs educational workshops and supports academic and drug regulatory research through the provision of not-for-profit simulator licenses to over sixty associate institutions.
