The Posterior Probability of Dissolution Equivalence David J Le. Blond 1 , John J Peterson 2 and Stan Altan 3) 1 Exploratory Statistics, Abbott, david.

► Objective Outline ► Background § Why dissolution? § Equivalence defined § Current practice ► Why a Bayesian approach? ► Posterior probability defined ► MCMC ► Examples § Equivalence of 2 lots § Equivalence of 2 processes (multiple lots) § Model dependent comparisons ► Summary MBSW May 25, 2011 2

Objective ► Make this tool available to you so you can use it if you want to. § Statistical Modeling § Software (R, Win. BUGS) § Example Data & Code § david. [email protected] com MBSW May 25, 2011 3

Importance of in-vitro dissolution ► Surrogate measure of in-vivo dissolution ► In-vivo dissolution rate affects drug bio-availability ► Bio-availability may affect PK (blood levels) ► Blood levels may affect safety and efficacy ► Compendial requirement for most solid oral dosage forms ► Need to show “equivalence” for process/ method change or transfer to obtain a bio-waiver. ► Need to show “non-equivalence” to prove in-vitro method can detect formulation / process differences. MBSW May 25, 2011 4

Measurement of in-vitro dissolution ► 1 tablet/ stirred vessel ► 1 run usually = 6 tablets ► solution sampled at fixed intervals ► samples assayed ► cumulative concentration ► expressed as % of dosage form Label Content (%LC) ► Are and “equivalent”? % Dissolved 100 0 Time MBSW May 25, 2011 5

Equivalence defined ► Identify parameter space based on ► Establish similarity region ► Obtain distance estimate from data ► Equivalence: distance estimate is “sufficiently contained within” the similarity region. § Difference in Dissolution at multiple time points § Difference in profile model parameters § Condensed univariate distance measure § Constraints on parameter space § Based on “customer requirements” § Conforms to parameter space MBSW May 25, 2011 ? 6

Example: f 2 similarity metric (see reference 9) ► parameter space: Dissolution differences, Di, at p time points. ► similarity region: D 2 0 0 D 1 ► distance estimate = (point estimate) ► Equivalence: (no measure of uncertainty) MBSW May 25, 2011 7

The confidence set approach TOST (one dimensional) 5% 5% 8% Yes 2% No “MOST” (multi-dimensional) Yes No MBSW May 25, 2011 Maybe 8

Confidence set approach considerations ► Must choose similarity region shape. ► Must choose confidence region shape. ► The number of shapes increases with number of dimensions. ► Lack of conformance between similarity and confidence region shapes conservative test ► Conclusion depends on shape choices. MBSW May 25, 2011 9

Confidence set approach considerations ► The confidence level is not the probability of equivalence. ► It is the probability of covering the “true” difference in repeated trials. ► What if you really want to know the probability of equivalence? § risk based decision making (ICH Q 9) MBSW May 25, 2011 10

Proposed Bayesian Approach distance estimate: Joint Posterior of Distance measures Measure of Equivalence = Integrated density = Posterior Probability of Equivalence Obtained by counting from MCMC Similarity region (“customer requirement”) MBSW May 25, 2011 11

Bayesian equivalency in a nutshell Prior Information (non-informative) Probability Model (Likelihood) Dissolution Data (Test and Reference) MCMC Draws from the joint posterior distribution of distance parameters (10 -100 thousand) Count the fraction of draws within the similarity region Conclude equivalency if fraction exceeds some limit (e. g. 95%) MBSW May 25, 2011 12

Example 1: Is the Reference lot equivalent to the Test lot? 6 tablets per lot MBSW May 25, 2011 13

Example 1: Multivariate Dissolution Model % Dissolution vector, Y, for the ith tablet from the kth lot … MBSW May 25, 2011 14

Example 1: Non-informative Prior Information MBSW May 25, 2011 15

Example 1: Non-informative Prior Information MBSW May 25, 2011 16

Example 1: Non-informative Prior Information Since and can be shown (see appendix) to have the distribution MBSW May 25, 2011 17

Example 1: Non-informative Prior Information MBSW May 25, 2011 18

Example 1: Definition of Equivalence Define a rectangular similarity region, S, as and require that to conclude equivalence. MBSW May 25, 2011 19

Example 1: Results 500 of 10, 000 draws plotted MBSW May 25, 2011 20

Example 2: Equivalence of 2 processes MBSW May 25, 2011 21

Example 2: Hierarchical Model % Dissolution vector, y, for the ith tablet from the kth run … MBSW May 25, 2011 22

Example 2: Non-informative prior information elements of Vtablet elements of Vrun Max = 40 MBSW May 25, 2011 23

Example 2: Definition of Equivalence (same as Example 1) Define a rectangular similarity region, S, as and require that to conclude equivalence. MBSW May 25, 2011 24

Example 2: Results 1000 of ~2, 000 draws plotted MBSW May 25, 2011 25

Example 3: A model dependent comparison • Data from reference 12 • 3 lots: 1 reference and 2 post-change lots • A minor change and a major change lot • 12 tablets per Lot • Pre-change and Test Lots have different time points • Comparison requires a parametric dissolution profile model • Similarity region defined on the model parameter space MBSW May 25, 2011 26

Dissolution profile models Probit: Logistic: Weibull: Exponential: ( 1 st order kinetics ) Quadratic: …and some others (Higuchi, Gompertz, Hixson-Crowell, …) MBSW May 25, 2011 27

Weibull parameters M measures content T is time to 63. 2% Dissol. beta measures delay 0. 5 2. 0 MBSW May 25, 2011 28

Weibull parameterization in Win. BUGS ► The following seemed to reduce colinearity and improve convergence. § Replace T with lna = -b ln. T § Replace b with lnb § transform time (t) from minutes to hours MBSW May 25, 2011 29

Nonlinear mixed model in Win. BUGS % Dissolution, Y, for the ith tablet from the kth lot at the jth time (t) point… MBSW May 25, 2011 30

Weibull Example: Judging similarity by confidence set approach “…At present, some issues are unresolved such as (i) how many standard deviations (2 or 3) should be used for a similarity criterion, (ii) what to do if the ellipse is only marginally out of the similarity region …” from Sathe, Tsong, Shah (1996) Pharm Res 13(12) 1799 -1803 MBSW May 25, 2011 31

Weibull Example: Posterior Probability of Dissolution Equivalence Prob = 0 2 SD Similarity Region Prob = 0. 949 MBSW May 25, 2011 32

Pros and Cons of a Bayesian Approach ► Pros § Based on simple counting exercise (MCMC) § Probability estimate for risk assessment § Exact conformity between the similarity region and the estimate (integrated posterior) § Incorporation of prior information (or not) as appropriate § True equivalence (not significance) test § Rewards high data information content ► Cons § Requires (usually) MCMC § Coverage properties require calibration studies. § Regulatory acceptance?
