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!
