Helen Moore : Optimal Control Applied to Drug Development.

In the biopharma industry of drug development, figuring out the best doses to use is considered a high priority. It can mean the difference between having an effective drug and having one that gives no benefit. It can reduce toxicities that otherwise could prevent the drug from being used. And proposing a dose that later turns out to be excessive not only looks bad, it can also mean substantial revenue loss.

The type of control theory used in academia for many decades is now being looked at by industry as a potential way to address the problem of dose selection. The problem becomes even harder when a drug will be used in combination with one or more other drugs. I will explain some of the mathematics and show examples of how control theory can be used to optimize dose regimens.
