Clinical significance of Tmax [Regulatives / Guidelines]

Dear all ,

I have a question about Tmax from clinical perspective.

According to EMA guidance:
"A statistical evaluation of tmax is not required. However, if rapid release is claimed to be clinically relevant and of importance for onset of action or is related to adverse events, there should be no apparent difference in median tmax and its variability between test and reference product."

If a fast disintegrating tab has a tmax earlier than the conventional release, does it prove that it has an earlier onset of action?

Thanks in advance and Best regards

The difference between a surrogate and a true endpoint
is like the difference between a cheque and cash.
You can get the cheque earlier but then,
of course, it might bounce.    Stephen Senn
