PMDA Adds Licenses of GastroPlus®

Sponsored by Businesswire

Simulations Plus, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLP), the leading provider of modeling
and simulation solutions for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology,
chemicals, and consumer goods industries, today announced that it has
received an order from the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency
(PMDA) in Japan to add licenses to its GastroPlus® software

, Lancaster division president for Simulations Plus, said:
“The adoption of physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling
to support various applications during the drug development process has
increased over the years, partly driven by encouragement from global
regulatory agencies. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and
European Medicines Agency (EMA) have led these efforts, and it is
exciting to see PMDA invest in the GastroPlus platform in anticipation
of more submissions coming to them for review. This news is most
welcomed by the >30, and growing, domestic Japanese pharmaceutical
companies that have been utilizing our technologies for years, as they
will hopefully engage more frequently with PMDA to identify how the
simulation results can potentially be applied to reduce time to market
and get medicines to patients more cost effectively.”
