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.

The rise of biometry in this 20th century,
like that of geometry in the 3rd century before Christ,
seems to mark out one of the great ages or critical periods
in the advance of the human understanding.    R.A. Fisher
