Please refer to the attached document, which serves as an Introduction to the Phoenix Model Object interface, and how its Text Modeling Language (PML) compares to NONMEM models. We strongly encourage you to review this material prior to using or adapting model(s) of interest from the Forum. Examples that show the NONMEM models translated to PML will be posted for the following modeling categories:

- 1 Compartment PK
- 2 Compartment PK
- 3 Compartment PK
- PK/PD and Indirect Response
- Categorical Data
- Count Model
- Time to Event Data


As a registered user, you may post a reply on the forum to ask a Certara Scientific consultant for clarification of any details about each model.

For detailed user's guide information, please refer to the Phoenix Help menu:

I am trying to transfer one PKPD model from NONMEM to Phoenix. Is there simple and easy way to transfer NONMEM code to PML? Thank you in advance!

Dear  Bojana, there is not an automated way to convert the code but if you can give a little more detail about your model; ie.. post your control stream them we can advise you better.  It may be that you can simply build your model using drop down and graphical options without having to touch the code directly.
