- Create and run a simulation program that determines the tumor volume at 4 weeks when there's no drug.
- Manually create and import a data set that specifies the target tumor volume you're trying to estimate at 4 weeks.
- Create and run a fit program that estimates the dose amount. Use the data set from the previous step as the data you're using for fitting. Configure the program to use a baseline dose that has a parameterized dose amount, which is the parameter that you're estimating.
Estimating Parameter That Satisfies Minimal Efficacy
1 view (last 30 days)
I have a working PK/PD model implemented in SimBiology that relates the kinetics of a drug to it's effect on the growth of a tumor. I'm looking to perform the following task. The goal is to compute the dose at which a minimal efficacy signal is attained. Specifically, I'm looking to estimate the dose at which, four weeks post drug application, the tumor volume is 80% of the volume that is attained when the tumor grows without any applied drug. In other words, the dose at which there is a 20% reduction in the maximum volume attained after four weeks. I was wondering if there is a way to do this using SimBiology? Many thanks for your time in advance.

Here's a high-level description of how I'd do this in the Analyzer App:
My command line workflow would be similar, except I'd be able to automate the creation of the data set.
Let me know if you need more details on any of the above steps. And if you do, also let me know what version of MATLAB you're using.
