## PASS Sample Size

Hi Rosy,

It is better to use PowerTOST for bioequivalence.
PASS is good for clinical endpoints studies.

Hi Rosy,

» […] my regulation ask for the use of "Confidence Software" …

We had already some problems in interpreting Mexican requirements. Can you give the complete sentence in Spanish, please?

Dear Helmut,

There is not sentence, this was an spoken recommendation, nothing written. In a few words: R software is not allowed

I have no idea where such a recommendation would come from? Maybe you can try EFG??
As I recall it, it was written by a former regulator and it only handles the standard design with any level of credibility (and I am not saying any high level of credibility).

I could be wrong, but...

R's base package has 274 reserved words and operators, along with 1761 functions. I can use 18 of them (about 14 of them properly). I believe this makes me the Donald Trump of programming.

Dear ElMaestro,

» I have no idea where such a recommendation would come from?

I work at CRO, and this recommendation came from the health authority in Mexico (specifically during an audit), so we had to acomplish it.

» As I recall it, it was written by a former regulator and it only handles the standard design with any level of credibility (and I am not saying any high level of credibility).

Thank u so much, i will try it.

Kind Regards :)

emphasis by me - dlabes

IMHO such an statement is absolutely nonsense or at least outright bizarre.
Much more bizarre is the fact that there is no written statement about such a recommendation.

Regarding the regulatory acceptance of PowerTOST in other jurisdictions you may find this thread.
Look into this post to find what an opinion the FDA has regarding the use of the R language at all.

Maybe this gives you some arguments which help in an other audit to convince the auditor(s) in respect of using R packages.

Any other Mexican member out there with same observation?

Detlew
