Yes. DoseMeRx has been used in adult patients ranging from 35kg to more than 300kg. DoseMeRx uses a wide range of different ways of representing weight - a significant part of our model validation process is ensuring that the patient’s weight is accurately represented for the drug - for example a 350kg patient does not have kidneys 7x as efficient than a 70kg patient!
Depending on the drug and drug model, we use a wide variety of weight measures, including:
- Total body weight
- Ideal body weight
- Lean body weight
- Adjusted ideal body weight
- Body surface area.
DoseMeRx provides significant benefit in dosing patients at different ends of the weight spectrum - every patient is an individual, and weight is just one component that we consider.
