Applied BioMath, LLC Presents Mathematical Modeling to Optimize Therapeutic Window at the 14th Annual World Bispecific Summit

CONCORD, Mass., Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied BioMath (, the industry-leader in providing model-informed drug discovery and development (MID3) support to help accelerate and de-risk therapeutic research and development (R&D), today announced their participation at the 14th Annual World Bispecific Summit occurring October 2-4, 2023 in Boston, MA.

Fei Hua, PhD, Vice President of Modeling and Simulation Services at Applied BioMath will present, "Using Mathematical Modeling to Find a Balance Between Affinity and Avidity for an Optimal Therapeutic Window" within the Preclinical and Clinical Track on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 2:15pm.

In this presentation, Dr. Hua will demonstrate how mathematical modeling can help address critical design and development considerations, and predict an optimal therapeutic window for bispecific molecules. For example, with cis-binding bispecific molecules, weaker single-target binding affinity with stronger avidity is a strategy to reduce the chances of the drug binding to off-target cells, thereby increasing the therapeutic window. With multiple targets involved, binding affiities to multiple targets can be optimized and the expression levels of multiple targets need to be considered with translating from preclinical to clinical studies. Mechanistic PK/PD models can capture the biophysics of binding and avidity to guide compound selection and clinical translation.

"For complex therapeutics, such as bispecific and multispecific molecules, there are many design factors that are not always straightforward," said John Burke, PhD, Co-founder, President and CEO of Applied BioMath. "Incorporating mathematical modeling approaches provides competitive advantages, as it helps to test and generate hypotheses much more quickly than traditional methods."
