Hi Loky do,

» If I have a bioavailability study and want to compare its PK results with published data, is there any specific statistical test that could be used to prove there is no significant difference between both results?

If you have the subject’s data of the previous study, you could work with log-transformed values and use a paired t-test.
If not, i.e., you have only the mean (\(\small{\mu}\)), you could use a one-sample t-test, where \(\small{t=\frac{\overline{x}-\mu}{s/\sqrt{n}}}\) with \(\small{df=n-1}\).
Example in [image]:

set.seed(1234567)
x <- rnorm(n = 24, mean = 20, sd = 5) # give a vector of your study data instead
summary(x)

   Min. 1st Qu.  Median    Mean 3rd Qu.    Max.
  11.11   16.98   20.09   19.82   23.15   27.71


t.test(x, mu = 20, conf.level = 0.90)

        One Sample t-test

data:  x
t = -0.1917, df = 23, p-value = 0.8497
alternative hypothesis: true mean is not equal to 20
90 percent confidence interval:
 18.25799 21.39151
sample estimates:
mean of x
 19.82475


t.test(x, mu = 25, conf.level = 0.90)

        One Sample t-test

data:  x
t = -5.6612, df = 23, p-value = 9.191e-06
alternative hypothesis: true mean is not equal to 25
90 percent confidence interval:
 18.25799 21.39151
sample estimates:
mean of x
 19.82475
