Dear All,

I would like to know

1.What BE limits should be taken into consideration while estimating sample size for replicate design studies for USFDA & EMA.

Should it be 80-125% ? We normally use FARTSSIE

Why the Question

1. For a product with 51% ISCV (from a completed partial replicate study UKMHRA) by using FARTSSIE we arrived at different sample size for EMA

- Sample size estimated = 27 (80% Power, 95-105% T/R, Method C1, BE Limits 69.84 to 143.19%)
- Sample size estimated = 76 (80% Power, 95-105% T/R, No reference Scaled BE Limits-80-125%)

Which sample size should we consider for pivotal study

Regards
Chirag

One can show the following: given any rule, however “fundamental”
or “necessary” for science, there are always circumstances
when it is advisable not only to ignore the rule,
but to adopt its opposite.    Paul Feyerabend
