Hi GM,

As El Maestro explained, when your test hypothesis is a ratio (multiplicative model) then you must work with ln transformed data. The guidance is clear on that as it also defines the acceptance range as 0.8 to 1.25 (multiplicative model). If in some guideline they state the hypothesis as treatment differences (H0: u1-u2=0) and a symmetric equivalence range (0.8 to 1.2) then they would be suggesting an analysis on untransformed data. This is true regardless of the type of your endpoint as long as it is a continuous endpoint. As simple as that ;-)
