❝ ❝ The problem starts already here. How reliable is Oodendijk’s result? Is it the only one?

❝

❝ The reliability of someone else's data - that is the question (especially when one of the authors says "waouf"

*Willard Oodendij*k twittered and

*Nemo Macron*said “waouf”.

❝ ❝ The crucial point is what we consider a *“clinically not relevant \(\small{\Delta}\)”*

❝

❝ As far as we (and the Agency) proclaim 25% to be clinically not relevant there is no difference in the rate of the harm for the customer's health independently from the a- or b- approach. For the b-approach he'll just receive not worser drug or doesn't receive it at all.

Here you err. In (a) all is good. In (b) everything is in a flux; the applicant and agency agree only that the acceptable risk may be either 20% or 25%.

We are dealing with

*average*BE. Classifying HVD(P)s based on CV

_{wR}is fine in principle. However, once we make this classification

*post hoc*(based on \(\small{\widehat{CV_\textrm{wR}}}\)), troubles start. Hence, I don’t like* the reference-scaling methods and (b) as well.

❝ ❝ Try the function `CVCL()`

in `PowerTOST`

.

❝ I try:

❝

`library(PowerTOST)`

❝ `CVCL(CV = 0.3, df = 3*40-4, side ="2-sided")`

❝ ` lower CL upper CL`

❝ `0.2646219 0.3466708`

❝ As CI is shifted to the right …

Skewed to the right because the variance follows a \(\small{\chi^2}\)-distribution.

❝ … does it mean that for these initial conditions the probability of the conclusion of HV is higher?

Yes (for

*any*condition).

❝ (By the way shouldn't we lower the degrees of freedom for the CV of the reference drug? 3*40-3 should correspond to the common CV of the Test and Reference, shouldn't it?)

Oops,

*one more*degree of freedom! In the 2-sequence 4-period replicate design we have df = 3n – 4 for the pooled CV

_{w}. Following the EMA’s model for the estimation of CV

_{wR}we have one factor (the treatment)

*less*in the model and therefore, df = 3n – 3:

`library(PowerTOST)`

CVCL(CV = 0.3, df = 3*40-3, side = "2-sided")

lower CL upper CL

0.2647549 0.3464397

- Not for an initiate like you but others:
- Such a study is not bijective like when assessed for ABE. Whereas in ABE we could reverse the procedure (if T ≈ R also R ≈ T), this is highly unlikely here (only if CV
_{wR}≡ CV_{wT}).

- In ABE every application has to follow the same rules and \(\small{\Delta}\) is known. Here every study
*sets*its own rule. The BE-limits and hence, \(\small{\widehat{\Delta}}\) are random variables. Without access to the study report patients and physicians don’t know the risk.
