Hi Relaxation,

❝ ❝ 5. \(\small{_\textrm{partial}AUC_{\textrm{cut off}-{\tau}}}\)

❝ This one I think should be: \(\small{_\textrm{partial}AUC_{\textrm{cut off}-t_\textrm{last}}}\)?

According to the GL, yes. However, doesn’t make sense to me.1 In trying to get a waiver for the MD study I’m interested in showing BE for the partial \(\small{AUC\textrm{s}}\), which are – hopefully – predictive of the clinical situation (multiple doses administered with \(\small{\tau}\)). If you have issues with the LLOQ in the SD study or missing sample(s) in the late part of the profile, already \(\small{AUC_{0-t_\textrm{last}}}\) [sic] is a pile of poo.

[image]If in a subject \(t_\textrm{last(T)}\neq t_\textrm{last(R)}\), that’s comparing apples with oranges (though similar by weight and shape, extremely different by smell, taste, touch, and texture).
IMHO, it’s high time to abandon \(\small{AUC_{0-t_\textrm{last}}}\) in all guidelines (because biased) and move forward to the – always (‼) unbiased – \(\small{AUC_{0-t_\textrm{last(Common)}}}\).2

Confession: In my studies of multiphasic products I chickened out and used still \(\small{AUC_{0-t_\textrm{last}}}\) (I knew that I won’t have problems with BQLs and wanted to make assessors happy) but \(\small{_\textrm{partial}AUC_{\textrm{cut off}-{\tau}}}\). Were accepted without problems.

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
