Dear Bill, dear all

More concrete I would like to model blood pressure including a circadian
rhythm. Therefore I would like to use a sine or cosine function with =
‘T’

SinfS = ( 1 + Amplitude * sin ( (2*PI/Period) * (T-Phase) ) ) ; sine =
or
cosine function

SBP = (SBas + SinfS) * (1-EffS)
; SBP = systolic blood pressure, SBas = Baseline systolic blood =
pressure,
(1-EffS = effect)

I could also model this effect using a turnover model and avoid this
problem, but I would like to evaluate this kind of PD model (if there is =
any
meaningful way to code).

I also had the idea to code this sine function as a function of time in =
a
compartment and rename this compartment in \$Error, but I am not sure if
there is any way to do this.

Thanks again and best regards.

Katrin

Hi Katrin,

\$ERROR is executed once per data row. The time when \$ERROR is run is =
the
TIME value (the discrete times of the measurement). For this specific
example, you can just use TIME. You will need to code your \$DES block =
so
that what you’re wanting to integrate as a function of time is in a
compartment amount (e.g. A(1)). With your example, it’s hard to see =
how T
is used in the \$DES, but perhaps you could share the real example to =
give a

Thanks,

Bill

Subject: [NMusers] Time 'T' in \$Error

Dear NMuser,

I would like to model a PD effect using a function which includes =
continuous
time ‘ T ’.

The PD Effect is coded in \$Error.

In general like this:

\$ERROR

MyFunction = xxx + T

PDEffect = Basline * MyFunction

But ‘T’ cannot be used in \$Error.

I tried to code the function with ‘T’ in \$DES and rename it to use =
it in
\$ERROR:

\$DES

MyFunction = xxx + T

\$ERROR

MyNewFunction = MyFunction

PDEffect = Baseline * MyNewFunction

but it didn’t worked (to rename was not permitted by NONMEM).

Does anyone of you has an idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks and best regards.

Katrin
