Dear Scopy!

Pls note that over here, we are only taking for pre-dose concentration. If the predose concentration>5%, the subject would be excluded from analysis as per most of the guideline. Pls find following example to illustrate that the impact on AUC would not be significant.

» » If we are focusing on root cause, I believe that for pre-dose concentration even in period-I would not cause a significant issue to final BE out come as it may only impact AUC and it would not be significant.:-D If the value is MT 5% of Cmax, the subject would by default not considered for statistical evaluation:-).

» How can you be so sure that its effect on AUC won't be significant? The removal/or inclusion of a subject from a statistical evaluation is enough is change the outcome especially if the result is borderline.

The concentration in below table is shown where only Pre-dose concentration is changed ;-) and then AUC is given using PKSolver.

20        10              10              10              10
24         5               5               5               5
AUC      826.125         826.375         826.625         826.75


I believe that such small change in AUC can be considered non-significant. :-)
