InSysBio, a pioneer in Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP), modeling and simulation for drug development, announced today an extension of a collaboration with MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca, for QSP modeling in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The goal is to support the clinical development of anifrolumab, an investigational monoclonal antibody against the type I interferon receptor, by modeling the contributions of key cell types involved in the pathophysiology of lupus that are associated with the type I interferon dysregulation commonly seen with the disease.

“InSysBio’s QSP modeling approach helps us not only to identify predictive biomarkers and means of stratifying patients but also to understand how these biomarkers are related to anifrolmab’s mechanism of action,” said Wendy White, Scientific Director, MedImmune.

“This project is another example of the usefulness of QSP modeling not only in early stages of drug development but also in late stages,” said Oleg Demin Jr, Head of Business Development, InSysBio.
