Hi Mikalai,

❝ […] what regulators say on this subject? I do not remember any reflection on this matter in official documents (EMA, FDA)?


Some slides of Terry Hyslop (Director, Division of Biostatistics) of his presentation “Bioequivalence (BE) for Highly Variable Drugs” at the AAPS Workshop (New Orleans, Nov 2010) – after the progesterone guidance was published…

Aka the ‘implied limits’ (see this post and slide 23 below).

Well roared, lion! Trouble starts because we use \(s_{WR}\) instead of the unknown \(\sigma_{WR}\).
Nasty but \(s_{WR}\) is all we have.
Typo, should read
… use scaled average BE if sWR > cutoff.

Illegible text (white with grey shadowing):
  assuming no subject-by-formulation interaction, σWT = σWR,
  true GMR = max (1.25, implied scaled BE limit)

Check:

library(PowerTOST)
res        <- data.frame(method = c("ABE", "RSABE"), TIE = NA)
res$TIE[1] <- power.TOST(CV = 0.3, n = 36, theta0 = 1.25,
                         design ="2x3x3")
res$TIE[2] <- power.RSABE(CV = 0.3, n = 36, theta0 = 1.25,
                          design ="2x3x3", nsims = 1e6)
res$TIE    <- signif(res$TIE, 4)
print(res, row.names = FALSE)

# method    TIE
#    ABE
0.0500
#  RSABE 0.1323


Hence, the FDA was well aware of the inflated type I error and decided to ignore it.

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
