dear D. Labes,

» My questions remains:
» Do I do something wrong here? If yes, what?

I don't know why you used TYPE=UN in your SAS code. In the FDA 2001 Guidance (Appendix E, p.37), it says: "...In the Random statement, TYPE=FA0(2) could possibly be replaced by TYPE=CSH. This guidance recommends that TYPE=UN not be used, as it could result in an invalid (i.e., not nonnegative definite) estimated covariance matrix..."

» If not, what are the chances that regulators accept the bear / R handling of replicate studies?

As long as bear complies with the FDA Guidance (2001) and is statistically correct, it should be acceptable, I guess. :-)

Edit: Link corrected for FDA's new site. [Helmut]

All the best,

Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded
if you tied them the usual way.
This happens to us all the time with computers,
and nobody thinks of complaining.    Jef Raskin
