Hi Mithu,

» » Without knowing your SAS code it would be reading tea leaves.
» We have used Progesterone program.

… which nowhere gives the subject’s T/R-ratios.

» » $$x/y=\exp (\log_{e}x-\log_{e}y)\;\left\{x,y \in \mathbb{R}^{+} \right\}\; {\color{red}{\neq}}\log_{e}x/\log_{e}y$$
» Still I could not understand.

Calculating the ratio of logs (2. of your OP) is nonsense.
The individual averaged log-differences \(I_{ij}\) (for subject \(i\) in sequence \(j\)) are computed in the FDA’s SAS macro by


Simply back-transform them.

Let’s have a look at the EMA’s full replicate reference data set:

   1    2285.96      R          1      BABA    7.734541
   1    1955.82      T          2      BABA    7.578565
   1    1345.94      R          3      BABA    7.204848
   1    2856.24      T          4      BABA    7.957261

Then$$\overline{I_{11}}=0.5\times(7.578565+7.957261-7.734541-7.204848)=0.2982185$$and$$\overline{T_{11}/R_{11}}=\exp \overline{I_{11}}=\exp 0.2982185=1.347456$$Confirmed by Phoenix WinNonlin’s RSABE-template and my pocket calculator. :-D

Which leaves my second question open:
