Hi Researcher101,

» […] sample size in multiple dose studies? Should I estimate sample size based on intra subject variability of Cmin or Cmax or C tau?

Based on the one with highest variability – if the assumed T/R-ratios are identical. If not, explore various combinations and opt for the worst case. This gives you a safety margin for the other PK metrics.

» Can I pool the CVs to estimate sample size?

Doesn’t make any sense.
