Dear All,
especially the contributors to this thread.

I have a simple opinion about that mean PK profile graphs:
Whatever sophisticated group statistics underlying such mean profile you choose, whatever sophistic rules regarding missings and / or values below LLOQ, whatever sophistic graphical effects
you choose - you end with a statistical lie.
A lie
is a lie
is a lie ...

Thus my recommendation: Don't invest too many Gehirnschmalz (brain power).
Try to go without them.
And since that unfortunately doesn't function in many cases, as I know of course, choose a simple effortless solution and go with that. The Blume/Mutschler graphs shown in Helmuts post point in the correct direction.
I only had some seldom requests from some smart alecs to change the graphs. If this happens it is early enough to invest some grey matter.

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
