Hi all,

I have a question about initial input for CV into a sample size calculation comparing two formulations when all that has been run is a single study, say, a first in man. Since it is not correct to use sd/mean from the first formulation as your CV, but if it is all you have (say, you measured log(AUC) from ten patients for a single formulation (ie, only for the reference), what would you input as CV for a subsequent parallel (say) study between this formulation and another one not yet available) in order to estimate sample size?

I see people will typically enter sample sd / sample mean of the single formulation, but I feel this is incorrect.
