Hi everyone,

Question, if one conducted a study comparing ER to an immediate release reference but not following the recommended dosage regimen of the IR. Example, as per product monograph IR is given every 4 hrs and the new ER is given every 8 hrs, but the guy designed the pk study comparing ER vs 2xIR with both give at time 0, The design is obviously wrong (due to IR dosing regimen) but would a regulatory body reject the study (assume the study pass the BE objective which is BE needed only for auc). A pivotal study not pilot.

PS, not me! Doing some due diligence..
Thx
J

A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues
(or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and
to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment.
