Half-life extension and non-human primate pharmacokinetic safety studies of i-body AD-114 targeting human CXCR4

Single domain antibodies that combine antigen specificity with high tissue penetration are an attractive alternative to conventional antibodies. However, rapid clearance from the bloodstream owing to their small size can be a limitation of therapeutic single domain antibodies. Here, we describe and evaluate the conjugation of a single domain i-body, AD-114, which targets CXCR4, to a panel of half-life extension technologies including a human serum albumin-binding peptide, linear and branched PEG, and PASylation (PA600).… Read the rest

 

ECCMID 2019 in Amsterdam

We will be at ECCMID 2019 with a poster contribution and as an exhibitor. The poster is on a novel cUTI mouse model and the application of PK/PD modelling to derive the required effect in the mouse model that translates to clinical response. We used historical Levofloxacin data to establish this animal-human translation. Visit us at our booth to learn more how we can support your preclinical, translational and clinical program with PK/PD modelling. … Read the rest

 

LYO-X joint BEAM to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance

LYO-X joint the BEAM (Biotech companies in Europe combating AntiMicrobial Resistance) alliance, a strong Network of ~ 50 European biopharmaceutical companies committed to developing innovative products to fend-off antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

We have continuously expanded our support of biotech companies with PK/PD modelling and SystemsPharmacology to translate their antibiotics more effectively to patients. Helping biotechnology companies to succeed and bringing new antibiotics to patients is something we feel really committed to.

By joining BEAM we hope to help even more biotechs to bring their drugs to patients and to increase the awareness of PK/PD modelling as a tool for efficient antibiotics drug development.… Read the rest

 

‘In-silico Drug Development, Modelling & Simulation’ at the University of Freiburg

LYO-X will give a lecture + hands on seminar on ‘In-silico Drug Development, Modelling & Simulation’ at the University of Freiburg for Pharmacy Master Students. This is together with Dr. Regenold GmbH who will be covering complementary topics on preclinical and clinical drug development . We are looking forward to engage the students and to give them a real world perspective on how in silicon methods are used today to develop novel drugs.… Read the rest

LATSIS Symposium ETH ZURICH on Personalised Medicine

LYO-X is sponsoring the LATSIS Symposium on Personalised Medicine to be held at the ETH Zurich June 27–29 2016. Personalised medicine has a number of quite attractive advantages. Treatments tailored to the individual patient, for example by therapy selection based on diagnostic tools or by individualised dosing, should improve the effect, lower side effects and lower costs by avoiding ineffective treatments. It appears to be an obvious solution given the situation we have today in the health care system. However, despite the advantages most drugs are still developed as a one-fits-all solution without any diagnostic tools.… Read the rest

 

20. PK/PD Expert Meeting

We were very kindly invited to the 20. Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics Expert Meeting in Berlin April 14th – 16th 2016. It will be a great opportunity to meet the German PKPD experts. There is an attractive agenda including:

  • Systems Pharmacology
    Methods, Applications, Opportunities and Challenges
  • Dose Finding in Phase II for Confirmatory Clinical Trials
    Overview, Methods, Good Practices and Examples
  • PK/PD of Locally Applied Drugs
    Considerations for (Sub-)Cutaneous and Ocular Administration of Pharmaceuticals

Of course we are in the Systems Pharmacology session where we will talk about the “Introduction to Concepts and Methods of Systems Pharmacology”.… Read the rest
