Hi John,

I hope so. Imagine you have capacity-limited elimination. You would partly saturate the enzymes with the 1×2 regimen and see a higher AUC than with 2×1. Hence, the T/R-ratio will be positively biased. In an extreme case the study passes with the wrong design but would have failed with the correct one.
