The Pharmacokinetics, Dynamics, and Metabolism (PKDM) department at Sanofi contributes to the safe and effective therapeutic treatment of each patient by applying appropriate pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) principles to drug development and accelerating the process, where possible. PKDM generates, integrates, and leverages clinical and non-clinical PK, PK/PD and metabolism knowledge to support critical decision making and risk management for projects from first in human dosing through life cycle management. As such, we aid in dose selection/study design, de-risking of drug-drug interactions, benefit/risk assessment, and formulation development, with the use of Population PK, PK/PD, and PBPK approaches as appropriate, and contribute to regulatory submissions/interactions.
