Hi Nastia,

» I didn't want to doubt into results of your study,

No worries. I was curious myself.

» just wanted to point out that the results of miscorrelation between Cmax and AUC should be more dependent on the features of the specific study than on the drug itself.

Or the dose regimen (as Relaxation suspected)?

» […] is sampling time is adequate but comparing to the less rapid drug the difference in 30 minutes in elimination phase could give sufficiently more error in calculating AUC (one day for jinn as thousand years for man)?


» The last question about it: what was the mean T1/2 (from these abrupt profiles I may suspect less than known in literature 20 minutes)?

Linear plot with enlarged time scale:

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
