Hi John,

» » 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 …

Might well be.

» … or he doesn't understand the concept.

Well,…

» 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).

Had that on this side of the pond as well (called a “hybrid application”); multiphasic product. Cmax was doable but only with expanded limits.

Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge
in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people.
The specialist knows more and more about less and less
and finally knows everything about nothing.    Konrad Lorenz
