» What‽ If you would succeed in demonstrating BE of Cmax you would have proven that your product is not an ER. Bizarre idea.

Exactly. I am at a lost. I am not sure if the reviewer misread the protocol or he doesn't understand the concept. Having said that (dont laugh), FDA once asked us to show BE for a 505b2 for an once day ER vs IR @ 4 hrs with respect to Cmax and AUC. It was v strange unless they are suspecting that Cmax is associated with efficacy (somehow).
