Dear All,

Is it OK to use the following approach of statistical evaluation in a BE study with full replicate design:
  1. Average bioequivalence is used to determine bioequivalence first.
  2. If bioequivalence is not met for Cmax, scaled-average-bioequivalence can be used if both of the following conditions are met:
    • the point estimate of the geometric mean ratio lies within the 80.00-125.00% range;
    • the R-R within-subject CV is > 30%, and is not the result of outliers?
And another question: is this obligatory to include the detailed description of null and alternative hypotheses for Cmax (ABEL) and AUCt (ABE) together with description of conditions that lead to acceptance/rejection of a hypothesis in a protocol of a full replicate study?
