Hi XH7081,

❝ First of all thank you for the wonderful PowerTOST package!

Welcome. THX to Detlew Labes and Benjamin Lang. Both did much more than myself.

❝ If I want to design an injection site study to compare the relative bioavailability at 3 different injection site, say T1, T2 vs R, in either crossover design or parallel design, is it correct to use the R code below:

In principle yes but as already mentioned by Divyen, theta0 = 1 should not be used.

❝ I also saw some posts suggest doing "two at a time" test, which will use the 2x2 design as follows (which gave essentially the same sample size as the 3x6x3 design above since I need to round up to 6X, so 40 becomes 42). Is this thought process correct?

See this article and click on Show hide/details

❝ Parallel design (3 arms, assuming true theta=1, pooled CV=0.4). R results indicate I need 132 total subjects (44 subjects per arm), not considering drop out etc. Is it correct, or the 132 is for 2 arms (66 per arm) and I actually need 198 total subjects?

Every man gets a narrower and narrower field of knowledge
in which he must be an expert in order to compete with other people.
The specialist knows more and more about less and less
and finally knows everything about nothing.    Konrad Lorenz
