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,
