Since some mobile devices (Nokia, WM phones, Palm & etc.) have gone or will disappear from
market, mobilePK will not longer support these mobile devices. Finally, only Android mobile phone is survived after
more than 10 years since mobilePK was first relased. Ten years means a lots for mobilePK. No registration is required
any more. After 10 years, more than 10,000 downloads from worldwide. Once again, thank you for using mobilePK.
Yeah! We have successfully ported mobilePK to ANDROID G1 Gphone
platform. I don't have a G1 with me. Just cannot
afford it. I don't have Blackberry, either.
However, it won't stop me porting mobilePK to these mobile
phones. It seems mobilePK can run on a BB without any
problem. so I just
tested it on ANDROID SDK emulator (VGA mode) and find it
seems running o.k.. Some buttons (ZoomIn and ZoomOut)
seem not working properly, but will not affect its use.
Thanks go to
www.netmite.com who developed Java ME MIDP runner for
Gphone, and an online converter which can convert an MIDP jar to an apk . That makes mobilePK be able to run on G1.
I will wait for response from our users. one more to go...
Apple iPhone. Hmm... no JB?
about that some users may not be able to install
successfully with mobilePK v6 as provided on Dec. 17, 2007.
Don't be panic. We just accidentally used Java ME
with MIDP v2.1 to compile mobilePK v6. That causes problem!
Some mobile devices only support up to MIDP v2, not
v2.1. So the installation is not possible as a result. Now
we have already fixed this. Just go back to MIDP v2.
That's it. Please re-download the file and install it
again. It works now. Promised.:-) We still keep the
same version number (v6). Basically, all algorithms
are remained the same. That's why we don't give a new
version number for it. For some websites, they will
need a new
version number for updated files upload. Don't know
why. But we have to get used to it. We will say
it v6.1, if it is the case. As the matter of the fact, it is not. mobilePK for BlackBerry
(BB) mobiles should be no such problem since BB's IDE has
not supported MIDP v2.1 yet. That's very interesting, too.
And don't know why, either.
O.k., I guess that we've been
ready to kickoff mobilePK as freeware now. Just almost take two weeks since v5.5 was
released. In this version, we fix phenytoin (SS) C->D
and D-> C; also digoxin dosage conversion problem from "ng"
to "mg". Both should be normal before v6.
here to get
your free registration code. Thanks to Hero for his
efforts that make this possible in a very short time.
Freeware! Since the first release of mobilePK
(formerly JavaPK for mobile Devices) on Nov. 11,
2004, we had a wonderful time to maintain it, to answer
questions from our users and to watch it growing up day by
day. More and more users are choosing
mobilePK now. Since the team becomes busy right
now, we decide to let it go as freeware. Maybe, we
should release more as open-source software. It
doesn't mean that we will not maintain mobilePK
later. On the contrary, we will still maintain it
actively, because we just love to. Thank you for
mobilePK v5.5 is
released. It is one day after NetBeans v6 was released. After all, some users may wait for a long
time for this version. The following is the
brief about this update. (1) Phenytoin non-steady
state estimation - with an ode solver in this newly
developed algorithm; please don't input too many days
(Ts < 7 days is recommended) on it. It can take huge
time to complete calculation. Lu spent a lot of effort
on this ode solver; In addition, "NG Feeding"
option is also added to get better estimation with
phenytoin; (2) Limitations for some
input function; such as the daily dose of phenytoin
should be less than 600 mg. Let us know if there is any
inappropriateness for all drugs in mobilePK; (3) Ref. values for some
drugs have been fixed, too; and (4) Also, many other updates,
so try it yourself.
|The test on Windows Mobile
professional v6 on my Dopod CHT 9000 (a 3G cellular phone)
has been completed. mobilePK works on WM6, too.
In WM6, MIDlet Manager is still there and bundled.
A little bug finally has been
fixed with mobilePK for
BlackBerry Mobiles ONLY. This bug was
about the switching problem between input options, such as
gender (female or male), smoking (yes, no), CHF (yes, no),
etc.. The previous version cannot be correctly
switch back and forth between provided options. It was
something going wrong in BlackBerry IDE (v4.2.0) that we
used to compile mobilePK of previous version. The new
release BlackBerry IDE v4.2.1 does not have such problem.
Thus, for all BlackBerry users, please download mobilePK
again, and re-install it on your device. However, it
still remains the same version# (v5.1), although we have
already re-compiled mobilePK for all devices.
Don't worry about this problem with
previous calculations. It will not cause serious
mistake for final PK parameter estimation since these
options are only to provide 'good' initial values of PK
parameters for further Bayesian estimation. Bayesian
estimation is a robust method to give you correct PK
parameters with final estimates. Believe it or not?
Now you can try it yourself with your own data.
While we are improving phenytoin
algorithm, we still decide to release this version (5.1)
urgently. This version fixed lithium algorithm for
better estimation results (smaller prediction errors than
before). Next version with improved phenytoin
algorithm (can be used to estimate Vmax & Km under no
steady-state) will released together with JPKD v3. It
is supposed to be soon.
YH starts working with a
phenytoin ode model now. This model will allow to estimate
both Vmax & Km parameters when users cannot assure if its
steady-state (SS) has reached or not. This approach
may also estimate PK parameters of phenytoin much earlier
under non-steady state than that we have to wait until SS.
It can take a long, long time to reach SS for phenytoin.
It's really difficult to estimate time required to reach SS
for phenytoin. In many situations, to assume that SS
has already reached may not be reasonable or justified.
fix both the setup file and CAB
files for PPC or WM2003/WM5 (re-uploaded). It works
v5 released; carbamazepine, lithium & theophylline (Chiou
method & Bayesian) have been added; cyclosporin A algorithm
has been fixed also; some algorithms ported from JavaPK for
Desktop (incl. UDBM) have been modified; a must-be upgrade
ver.; see also 'Update Log' of 02-27-2007 for more details.
JavaPK for Mobiles
has got a new name! Now it is called
But we will still use its old name "JavaPK" around for a
while to allow our users get used to it. The new
version has been ready to release. Next version will
jump to version 5 and will include more
TDM drugs in this new release. Theophylline (Chiou
method, Bayesian, and also IR & SR oral dosage forms),
lithium and carbamazepine have been added. One bad
news is that
the version 5 will no longer
run on PalmOS 4 PDA due to increased the
required memories (no more than 64 K only!). So we
will keep mobilePK as it was in v3.1. Don't worry
about this. All registered users of PalmOS v4 PDA can
be upgraded to another types of mobile devices for
FREE. So this is
supposed to be a good news. What about version 4? Uhh...
there was version 4 indeed, but it was not released
officially. Please feel free to
released. fix some functions in graphic plots (MTC
and MEC lines) and more accurate than before; to integrate
all ref. into "Help" button for each built-in drug. And now
the register's name will appear in the ticker from this
bugs of the warfarin model for the "Help" <-> "Input data"
screen switching back-and-forth bug; but still remained the
same version #.
released; A warfarin PK/PD model (Ref.)
has been added in this version. Dose <--> INR prediction.
A major fix for the function of "input data", especially for
cell/mobile phones/smartphone users, has been done.
Now no need to switch from "alphabetic" mode ('abc') to
"numeric" mode ('123') frequently any more!
You have to find out how to input the "DECIMAL (.)" point on
your cell phone. Newer cell phones only press the key
with '*/+' to input a "decimal" point. However, some other
cell phone can be a nuisance. But once you get used to
it, it should be no problem. This function is only for
MIDP v2.0 cell/mobile phones ONLY. Fortunately, most MIDP
v1.0 cell/mobile phones have been out of sale for now.
choose "JavaPK for Mobiles" as the new program name.
first version for Palm OS v5 or above tested
first version for BlackBerry Mobiles was released.
Yes, it's v2.5a.
a minor fix has been done. truncation of redundant decimal
points for the error message of "Phenytoin" Dosage
adjustment (D -> C).
released. fixed "Phenytoin" dosage adjustment (D --> C; when
Dosing Rate > Vmax, accidentally input such a daily dose...)

Now the puzzle has been solved. A must-be upgraded
to the new website.
v2.1 released. Fixed bugs in vancomycin Bayesian algorithm.
Update cyclosporin-A Bayesian estimation algorithm.
||v2.0c released. Some bugs
fixed with algorithms of aminoglycosides and vancomycin.
||v2.0a released. Fixed

amikacin, tobramyin and amikacin) and vancomycin are counted
from the end time of i.v. infusion,
NOT the starting time of
i.v. infusion (it was counted from the starting time of i.v.
