v0.25.0

JuliaSimModelOptimizer

Features

  • Hierarchical Bayesian inference is now available as a virtual population generation method.

    This method assumes that the parameters of each Trial subject are sampled from the same population distribution. It then calculates the posterior distribution all parameters, subject-specific and population ones, given the available data. Finally, it uses the posterior distribution of population-level parameters to generate a virtual population.

    When using a Bayesian method to generate a virtual population with MCMCOpt, if the keyword argument hierarchical = true, then this hierarchical method will be used.

  • Pathfinder MCMC initialization is now available. This is an alternative to the standard warmup phase that sampling methods such as No-U-Turn-Sampler use to find regions of high probability mass and tune some internal parameters before sampling. In many cases Pathfinder is able to find regions of more probable parameter values more efficiently.

    Users can choose this method by setting the keyword argument warmup_method = PathfinderWarmUp() in MCMCOpt, before passing it to the vpop function, otherwise the default warmup_method = StandardWarmUp() will be used.

v0.24.1

JuliaSimSurrogates

v0.24.0

  • More general Model-Predictive Control (MPC) problem formulation.

  • New calibration feature for robustly fitting data using multiple shooting and collocation methods.

PumasQSP

  • Add support for dosing. The following types of doses can be used:
    • Bolus, increment a state by some amount.
    • PeriodicBolus, same as Bolus periodically.
    • Infusion, increments the rate of change of a state by some amount for a time window of given duration.
    • PeriodicInfusion, same as Infusion periodically, where the period counts from the onset time of the Infusion time window.

v0.23.0

PumasQSP

  • New population subsampling method
    • Users can now set target distributions for any number of model states and our new custom-made method will subsample a virtual population, so that the same model states of virtual patients match the target distributions, as measured by discretized histograms.
  • New plot recipe to plot all trials from a virtual population.
  • Improvements to plotting functionality.

v0.22.0

PumasQSP

The initial release of PumasQSP contains the following features:

  • Bayesian inference is now available when generating virtual populations
    • Each Trial object now contains a likelihood function and noise_priors distributions, which together describe how data was measured in a trial.
  • Timespan optimization is now possible
    • The timespan of a given trial can be fit to data, similarly to how model parameters and initial conditions are optimized to match the data of the trial.
  • New subsampling API
    • Subsampling a virtual population of patients vp for a given trial can now be performed with a simple call to subsample(alg, vp, trial), where alg is one of several available subsampling methods, like MAPEL or Allen-Reiger-Musante 2016 ARM.
  • Accessing the sampler of each subsampling method
    • Users now have access to a Sampler object, which they can call repeatedly to generate new subsampled virtual populations.
    • This way, users can perform subsampling multiple times quickly, without having to wait for the necessary computations of the respective method to finish every time (e.g. solving an optimization problem, like in the case of Allen-Reiger-Musante subsampling).
