hello,

I want to use a pharmacokinetic data from the literature and this data is provided in the form: mean ±SD, is it correct to use only the mean without taking into account the standard deviation?
For example I want to calculate a washout duration of seven times t1/2. This t1/2 is provided in the form: mean ±SD. Is it right to do "7 x t1/2 mean" without taking into consideration the SD?.

Thank you in advance
