Dear All,

I just like to know if it is reasonable to estimate lambdaz when doing data analysis of a multiple-dosed steady-state (SS) BE/BA study. It is because we just collect the plasma/blood sample within one dosing interval (Tau) at steady-state in a multiple-dosed BE/BA study. It looks like there is no such terminal phase at all in multiple-dosed BE/BA study. If it is not reasonable, is there any way to estimate the elimination rate constant (kel), half-life, Vss or the accumulation index? In WinNonlin v5.x, lambdaz still needs to be estimated first for further calculations of other NCA parameters. Thanks in advanced.

All the best,
