Dear all,

I would like to use parameters (Vmax and Km) from a PopPK model in a PBPK model.
In Mobi, I used the values from NONMEM of both parameters after converting in the right unities (from mass to molar concentrations).
I also multiplied Km by the unbound fraction before peforming simulations in Mobi (because the Km found with NONMEM is related to total concentration)
Did you have some suggestions about other scaling factors needed to be used in that kind of approach ? In my actual simulations the clearance is underestimate.

I was also wondering what is the meaning of the K_water parameter (Partition coefficient water/container) in the "reaction building block" ? I think it's probably related to the partition coefficients calculation, but I can't see neither how it's calculate nor where to find its value.

Thank you,
