Dear All,
especially the contributors to this thread.

I have a simple opinion about that mean PK profile graphs:
Whatever sophisticated group statistics underlying such mean profile you choose, whatever sophistic rules regarding missings and / or values below LLOQ, whatever sophistic graphical effects
you choose - you end with a statistical lie.
A lie
is a lie
is a lie ...

Thus my recommendation: Don't invest too many Gehirnschmalz (brain power).
Try to go without them.
And since that unfortunately doesn't function in many cases, as I know of course, choose a simple effortless solution and go with that. The Blume/Mutschler graphs shown in Helmuts post point in the correct direction.
I only had some seldom requests from some smart alecs to change the graphs. If this happens it is early enough to invest some grey matter.

Regards,

Detlew
