Gracias and sorry for confusion. Here is what I think I am not getting. When you run a FIM, you do not have two populations. You have a treatment and (perhaps) a control. So if you have a geometric CV, say, CV1 calculated from that one treatment sample in the FIM. [It is not pooled variance, is it? There is only one sample] there and then use it to design a parallel follow-up, do you need to assume that the CV of the other arm, call it CV2, is equal to CV1, and then CVp = pooled(CV1,CV2) as input into sample size formula, eg, sampleNTOST?

Much apology if I am missing this point. I do not seem to understand what are the components of the pooled variance that go into the sample size computation.

It’s always fun to have your models validated,
but is way more fun to have them trashed.
Finding out you are completely wrong
is a great part of science.    G. Randall Gladstone
