What a relief! [BE/BA News]
THX for that one!
❝ "[…] it is considered acceptable that low-lier profiles can be excluded from statistical analysis […] if they occur with the same or lower frequency in the test product compared to the reference product."
One-sided Fisher’s exact test or gut feeling? See this post.
❝ Technically, it could get a little involved: If you have n observations, of which m may be less than 10% of the (n-m) rest of observations, then identifying those m observations is computationally very different from anything else we usually encounter in BE. The approach can rightfully be called a kind of m'th order jackknife but we do not need to traverse all permutations to find the m observations.
Correct. Little bit tricky.
❝ I think it is a brave and much needed leap forward on the part of the regulators that they allow it. Dasatinib has caused lots of headaches and peptic ulcers at Sponsors and CROs globally. Those days may be gone.
Yep. What surprises me is the footnote (as in many product-specific guidances of the EMA).
- As intra-subject variability of the reference product has not been reviewed to elaborate this product-specific bioequivalence guideline, it is not possible to recommend at this stage the use of a replicate design to demonstrate high intra-subject variability and widen the acceptance range of Cmax. If high intraindividual variability (CVintra > 30 %) is expected, the applicants might follow respective guideline recommendations.
