Hi Martin,

» In statistical language - values <LLOQ are informatively censored and ignoring this fact can lead to biased results.
» Of course, adequate handling would require some modeling which seems to be in contradiction to regulatory thinking as NCA is clearly favored in BA/BE studies. However, I would like to bring a recent paper on this topic to your attention: Barnett H, Geys H, Jacobs T, Jaki T (2020). Methods for Non-Compartmental Pharmacokinetic Analysis with Observations below the Limit of Quantification. Statistics in Biopharmaceutical Research, 1-23

Thanks for the reference.
I'd love to see a work where someone not only debates BLQ's but also where someone tries to discuss what the various options imply for the residual variability and thus confidence interval in BE trials; the same for missing values. I have a feeling it might not be a big deal, but I dare not say at this point what "big deal" is quantitatively.

Pass or fail!
