# RE: [NMusers] Some help with simulation with uncertainty using \$PRIOR TNPRI

Date: Tue, 12 Apr 2016 09:07:07 +0000

Dear Navin Goyal,

Thanks for helping us out. It worked! We performed some clinical trial simulations for probability of target attainment and parameter uncertainty certainly made a difference.

Sincerely,

Rob

Dear Navin! Thank you a lot! We will try tomorrow and will keep you informed.

Sincerely,
Rob

Hi Rob,

This may help. I have used the Theophylline example that comes with the NM installation - CONTROL5 model.

Step 1 - You execute that model with only one minor change - addition of MSFO at the EST step (which generates and stores the information in the MSFI file you will need during simulation - step2)
\$EST MAXEVAL=450 PRINT=5 MSFO=MSFICONTROL5

Step 2- The simulation control stream is very similar to the control stream used for estimation. It has two \$PROB sections and few extra statements, I have italicized the extra statements needed in the simulation step.
PS. Use the exact same initial estimates as you had in the estimation control stream in Step 1 (just leave them as they were in the original control stream). If you change the initial estimates, the simulation step will not work.

\$PROB THEOPHYLLINE POPULATION DATA
\$INPUT ID DOSE=AMT TIME CP=DV WT
\$DATA THEOPP
\$PRIOR TNPRI (PROBLEM 2) PLEV=.999 IVAR=1
\$MSFI MSFICONTROL5 ONLYREAD ;; uses the msfi file generated during model fitting
\$PK
CALLFL=1
KA=THETA(1)+ETA(1)
K=THETA(2)+ETA(2)
CL=THETA(3)*WT+ETA(3)
SC=CL/K/WT
ISIM =IREP

\$ERROR
Y=F+EPS(1)

\$PROBLEM Sim part
\$INPUT ID DOSE=AMT TIME CP=DV WT
\$DATA THEOPP REWIND

\$THETA (.1,3,5) (.008,.08,.5) (.004,.04,.9)
\$OMEGA BLOCK(3) 6 .005 .0002 .3 .006 .4
\$SIGMA .4

\$SIM (12345) ONLY NSUB=5 TRUE=PRIOR
;\$EST MAXEVAL=450 PRINT=5 MSFO=MSFICONTROL5 ;; commented out in step 2
;\$COV ;; commented out in step 2
\$TABLE ISIM ID DOSE WT TIME FILE=sdtab5_uncertainty

As far as I can remember, control streams from Step 1 and 2 need to be run within same NM version. You cannot fit a model in version 7.1 and then simulate using ver 7.2 or 7.3 to use the \$TNPRI option.

Good luck!

Dear all,

I would like to perform a simulation (based on a finished model), incorporating parameter uncertainty (for all theta’s, eta’s and epsilons) with the \$PRIOR TNPRI option in Nonmem V7.3, using the results of the covariance step as an input. I am still struggling how to implement this. Does anybody have an example control stream I could look at?

Sincerely,

Rob ter Heine
