f of CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology<http://onlinelibrary.wiley=
.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)2163-8306>, in welcoming France Mentré, MD, Ph=
D, from University Paris Diderot as she describes the first published tutor=
ial<> on model ev=
aluation in nonlinear mixed effect models (NLMEM), from the ISoP Model Eval=
uation Group. This tutorial was developed by an international group of expe=
rienced pharmacometricians from various backgrounds (academia, industry, an=
d regulatory agencies). It describes a core set of graphical tools for eval=
uation of NLMEM for continuous data and provides guidance, especially to be=
ginner modelers, on how they are meant to be used. This presentation will i=
nclude a description of the different metrics, an illustration about their =
graphical use on 'true and 'misspecified' models, and a discussion of their=
 pros and cons. The use of each graph is illustrated via two case examples,=
 which were chosen to illustrate the properties and behaviors of different =
evaluation tools in different situations.
