CVintra for Cmax > AUC, therefore use AUC for sample size? [Power / Sample Size]

Hi nobody,

» Found this here:
» […] if I understand this correctly, the authors say, CVintra for Cmax is generally higher than for AUC, therefore use AUC to estimate the sample size of your study.

Ah – the formerly pink, now black journal. ;-)

» Did I get this right?

At least this is what the last sentence of the abstract says: “Hence, CV derived from AUC instead of Cmax should be used in sample-size calculation to achieve a sufficient, yet practical, test power.

» Any thoughts on this approach?

Outright bizarre. Since the authors are of a CRO, maybe the love failed studies in order to repeat them? Do you have a copy to share?

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
