Hi d_labes,

Power >= PAUC + PCmax - (2 - 1)

where PAUC is the estimate of power for AUC and PCmax is the estimate of power for Cmax.


Surely that's either wrong or an approximation that has some validity within a set of strict conditions. I have not read that work or reference 918, but it looks outright wrong.
With that equation power could become negative, go figure.

By the way, the term pooled in the first sentence is also weird. The variances estimates for Cmax and AUCt are not "pooled", but I think they meant that the pool is just the dichotomous set of two variances.

Pass or fail!

It’s always fun to have your models validated,
but is way more fun to have them trashed.

is a great part of science.    G. Randall Gladstone
