Hi d_labes,

❝ But that's not the problem Helmut has described, at least as I understand it. Here we initiate a stage 2 from the perspective of the AUC evaluation where it is not neccessary to initiate one.


Best I can come up with is as follows:
The only thing that determines the need for for stage 2 is the CV.
AUCt is generally having a lower CV than Cmax (for the record, I said 'generally', I did not say 'always'). Often it is about 5-20 percentage points.

So run the sims in the usual fashion, but add 5-20 points on the CV for the power and sample size estimation.

Pass or fail!
