Physiology-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling is used to describe ciprofloxacin (CIP) concentration-time profiles using known physiological Obesity
parameters (body and organ weights, blood flows, tissue composition etc.).
The PK-Pop module of PK-Sim® (Bayer Technology Services GmbH) contains a population algorithm to extrapolate to a virtual population of individuals with varying anthropomorphic/physiological parameters. Objective: Evaluate the feasibility of using a PBPK-Pop model to predict the
influence of two clinically relevant patho-physiological conditions (obesity & underestimated (Fig. 3)
renal impairment) on the PK behaviour of the anti-infective CIP.
Based on a mechanistic understanding of the patho-physiological changes associated with disease PBPK predicts behaviour in compromised patients.

2 virtual populations were generated (n = 50) each matching the age, weight and height range of a moderately obese (BW = 110.7 ± 20.2 kg) and normal- Renal Impairment

While variability was described and observed to be smaller in healthy individuals, A virtual population was generated (n = 5,000) matching the age, weight and it was under-estimated in sick patients. One possible reason is: height range of each experimental group of renally impaired [2,3,4] patients.
Renal impairment is often related to a decrease in intracellular water (muscle atrophy) and increase or maintenance of clearance (Fig. 2), in-line with
