Hi Achievwin,

❝ ❝ BTW, I have seen 4-period full replicate studies with 180 healthy volunteers…

❝ wow for a full replicate N=400 the sponsor has deep pockets…

Nope. ≈400 (parallel), 180 4-period full replicate1 but there are even larger ones (252 subjects started, 238 completers).2 If your drug is a blockbuster1 and you have to change the formulation, you would do it.
