Simulations Plus | January 16, 2023
Simulations Plus, Inc. recently announced that its DILIsym Services (DSS) division released DILIsym® version X (DSX) Beta, the latest iteration of its flagship quantitative systems toxicology (QST) software for predicting and investigating drug-induced liver injury (DILI).
DILIsym modeling aids vital drug development decisions by prevising the potential DILI risk of new drug candidates. The modeling also identifies the biochemical events that contribute to DILI caused by a medicine and can thus predict specific subgroups of patients who are more likely to get DILI from that drug.
DILIsym modeling information helps guide go/no-go decisions on big drug development projects, potentially averting the terrible financial impacts of failed clinical trials or better offering reassurance that DILI will not be an insurmountable barrier to FDA approval. Over the past 12 years, the DILIsym Services division has coordinated the DILI-sim Initiative, a public-private partnership that helped guide the development of the DILIsym software package.
Some of the substantial updates for DSX include:
A complete software redesign that includes command line and graphical interface options and server/cloud computing capability (HPGL)
Four new exemplar compounds included with varying clinical presentations:
PF-04895162 (Generaux 2019)
Two new SimCohorts that include variability in susceptibility to liver injury and biomarker-related parameters (ALT and bilirubin)

Many companies without data management in the same period filed for immediate bankruptcy. Involta's DRaaS+ provides a next-gen service model that focuses on business outcomes rather than only on infrastructure delivery.
