Thirty-second meeting, 26-28 June, 2024


Conference location and dates

The PAGE meeting takes place in an informal atmosphere with vivid scientific discussion. PAGE 2024 will be held at the Ergife Hotel in Rome, Italy. The meeting is preceded by registration and a welcome reception on Tuesday evening 25 June 2024. The scientific programme will start on Wednesday morning 26 June 2024 and will end at noon on Friday 28 June 2024. Participants are encouraged to attend all conference days and present their work in the form of an oral presentation or poster.

Preliminary programme items:

  • Special abstract topic this year: Regulation and use of real-world data (RWD) in pharmacometrics
    Data originating from sources other than traditional clinical trials are becoming increasingly important for clinical drug research, drug development and regulatory decision making. Real-world evidence (RWE) derived from real-world data (RWD), such as data from electronic health records, patient registries and observational data, can complement clinical trial evidence to support drug development and regulatory decisions, e.g. label expansion, as there is a growing payer interest in RWE. Historically, the 'population approach' was designed to enable analysis of observational TDM data and pharmacometric tools are very suitable to analyze RWD to generate RWE, e.g. disease progression modelling of natural history data. There are, however, potential limitations (ethical, legal and methodological) and other practical pitfalls and extrapolation issues that may complicate the use of RWD in pharmacometric analyses. We are inviting abstracts for oral presentations on case studies as well as methodological studies describing how and when RWD can be used in pharmacometrics and MIDD, with a focus on what obstacles were experienced and how these were overcome. Oral abstract submissions on this topic are very welcome!
  • The Lewis Sheiner Student Session
    In 2005, the PAGE organising committee inaugurated the annual Lewis Sheiner Student Session, both to honour the memory of Lewis Sheiner and to highlight his lifetime passion for student education. Students who wish to be considered for this session should submit an extended abstract.
    • The abstract must be structured with the following subheadings: Objectives / Methods / Results / Conclusion / References.
    • There must be at least 6,000 but not more than 7,000 characters (including spaces) in the abstract text (excluding Title / Authors/ Affiliation and References).
    • The submitted work must have been performed either as part of an MSc or PhD programme and/or will ultimately form part of a PhD thesis.
    • Each year a rotating committee of three members, representative of the PAGE community, will judge who should receive the honour of presenting in the Lewis Sheiner Student Session. The committee consists of one volunteering member of the PAGE Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC), or Advisors, and the other 2 members are nominated by the SOC/Advisors and are regular PAGE participants who have made substantial contributions to PAGE in the past. Diversity and inclusiveness in representation are prioritized by the SOC/Advisors when constituting the review committee annually.
    • If selected, the student will automatically receive a 300€ travel grant. A permanent list of students, with links to their presentation, will be maintained on the web site.
  • The Stuart Beal Methodology Session
    As a tribute to Stuart Beal, there is a Stuart Beal Methodology Session. The organising committee will choose presenters from the submitted abstracts.

The abstract submission deadline is Sunday 17 March 2024, and is the same for all submitted abstracts (Lewis Sheiner Student Session, orals, and posters) and there will be no option for late submissions. In practice, this means that any new abstract entered into the system after 23:59 CET on 17 March 2024 will be removed by the system administrator. The PAGE organising committee cares about the quality of all abstracts, and sufficient time is required for judging them.
