Dear ElMaestro,

» »

Power >= PAUC + PCmax - (2 - 1)

where PAUC is the estimate of power for AUC and PCmax is the estimate of power for Cmax.

» Surely that's either wrong or an approximation that has some validity within a set of strict conditions. I have not read that work or reference 918, but it looks outright wrong.

Here we are two.
You may read under the link

some more sparse details. Unfortunately the Appendix D with a proof of that formula is not available in Gooooogle books.

» With that equation power could become negative, go figure.

One nitpicking: The lower bound of power could become negative if both powers are <0.5, values no one would use in estimating sample sizes. If such a bound is reasonable is of course highly questionable.

Regards,

Detlew
