Hi Silke,

» Situation:
» 1st period was dosed in 1 group and completed in CRO 1
» 2nd period must now be performed at a different CRO (CRO 2)
» 2nd period must be performed in 2 groups in CRO 2

That's annoying :-)

» Protocol amendment:
» Switch in CRO including all tasks
» due to the change of dosing in 1 group to 2 groups in period 2 the washout will be different between the two groups.
»
» Does this trigger the evaluation of a group effect, although the groups may only be separated by 1 week?
»
» Is there special statistics we need to consider to address this properly?

In my opinion it is not overly informative to do a group analysis here, at least not within the fit which provides for the evaluation of BE (here it is a kind of "accidental group within period within CRO", where period somehow is indistinguishable from CRO :surprised::ponder:).

Can you switch the volunteers to the other CRO, or has it become a parallel trial rather than a crossover trial by now?

Pass or fail!

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
