Dear Chirag,

» […] does this apply to the untransformed or Ln transformed data
» The ratios were fine with the Ln transformed data.

Raw data! You need the ln-transformed data only in the BE-statistics. You would have to calculate the difference of logs and backtransform to get % covered. Example:

AUCt 375, AUC 500, covered: 100×375/500=75%.
lnAUCt 5.9269, lnAUC 6.2146, covered: 100×ℯ5.9269–6.2146=75%.

A ratio of logs (95.37%) is nonsense.

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
