Hi Artem,

Welcome to the world of mixed modeling!
Helmut suggested (see endnote c) to switch to the model with all effects as fixed. Your model is the same as suggested by FDA (with Subject as random). So Phoenix switched to the mixed model and used Satterthwaite degrees of freedom (which could be not integer).
Note that it is impossible to provide ANOVA tables (partial/sequential ss output PHX-speaking) for mixed models.

So due to no convention in Russian brains you are free to use your current model or the model provided by Helmut (with all effects fixed). Latter is more suitable for me due to hazelnut brain.

PS: are there any incomplete data (missed period) for some subjects?

Kind regards,
