Gents!

I have another 'better' one (from a Letter of FDA, Barbara M. Davit)! :cool:

" ... the following statistical model should be used when analyzing data from a multiple group bioequivalence study:

Group
Sequence
Treatment
Subject(nested within Group*Sequence)
Period(nested within Group)
Group-by-Sequence Interaction (sic!)
Group-by-Treatment Interaction


Subject(nested within Group*Sequence) is a random effect and all other factors are fixed effects. ..."

Enormous effect(s) :-D.

BTW: Helmut, how had you planned the evaluation of the second stage, if it would be necessary?

BTW2: In context of a 2-Stage design, also a 2-group design with groups here called stage, the mighty oracle prohibit us the Group-by-Treatment Interaction! From the EMA Q&A Rev.7 :
"Conclusion ... A term for a formulation*stage interaction should not be fitted."

BTW3: NOL = no objection letter ?
