Applied BioMath, a company involved in applying systems and mechanistic
modelling, simulation, and analysis to accelerate and de-risk drug research and development, has named Alison Betts as its new senior director of Scientific Collaborations and fellow of Modeling & Simulation, it was reported yesterday.
Simcyp is a provider of mechanistic
modeling technologies used to inform drug development, including physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK), quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) and quantitative systems toxicology and safety (QSTS) approaches.
The INFINITY results showed a mechanistic
change in the formation of new white-matter hyperintensity on MR brain scans.
It describes the definition of the method, what is being traced, how to theorize causal mechanisms, case selection and nesting of process-tracing case studies, making inferences using mechanistic
evidence, finding and evaluating evidence, evaluating the overall probative value of mechanistic
evidence, and variants of the research method: theory-testing and theory-building process-tracing and explaining-outcome process-tracing.
In this new method, mechanistic
responses are used together with empirical data to evaluate and design pavements.

MONDAY, June 18, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- For overweight and obese older adults with knee osteoarthritis (OA), greater weight loss is associated with superior clinical and mechanistic
outcomes, according to a study published online June 18 in Arthritis Care & Research.
In the clinical trial, miRagen plans to also examine several exploratory endpoints that are intended to provide mechanistic
proof of concept and biomarker validation to support a global development plan that may include use in patients with high risk for complications after surgical incisions or chronic wounds.
The process follows an established, transparent methodology for reviewing the evidence from studies of cancer in humans and in experimental animals, and mechanistic
and other data (IARC Monograph Working Group, 2006; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2016a,b, 2017).
Focus of discussion: In this presentation, both a mechanistic
approach and an outcomes evaluation will be utilised.
Deterministic models included mechanistic
model, empirical model, and mechanistic-empirical models.
