Hi All,

I would like to request you please explain the rationale behind the following statement:
Concentration Time profile of a drug must have at least 3 consecutive non-zero concentration data and of which the Cmax must not be the last quantifiable concentration in order to be included in the pharmacokinetic and statistical analyses.

Thanks in advance

To call the statistician after the experiment is done
may be no more than asking him to perform a postmortem examination:
he may be able to say what the experiment died of.    R.A. Fisher
