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

The difference between a surrogate and a true endpoint
is like the difference between a cheque and cash.
You can get the cheque earlier but then,
of course, it might bounce.    Stephen Senn
