 ABEL: Type I Error [RSABE / ABEL]

Dear all,

we know for a good while that under certain conditions the Type I Error (TIE) might be inflated. However, seemingly European assessors were either not aware of it or ignored it. Last week I saw a deficiency letter (don’t ask for the country):

… in case of a value of 30% < CVRR <45%, it is recommended to check the control of the patient's risk type I error at the level of 5%. If an alpha adjustment is necessary, it is recommended that a BE estimate for the new CI of the T/R ratio be submitted to meet the extended bounds.


Kudos! Almost correct. The area of inflated TIEs may reach below 30% and only rarely (say, for a 4-period full replicate in 24 subjects) to 45%.

That subjunction is correct but not part of the everyday linguistic toolbox of those who do not speak a lot of English. My guess is MHRA or the Irish Medicines Board or it comes from someone who spent a lot of time taking English language classes :-)

Pass or fail!

Not quite. :-D
Just before the mentioned text it read:

… no confirmation is provided that variability in the reference drug exists and is not caused by emissions; please provide confirmation in the form of an emissions estimate.

We guessed that outliers were meant by “emissions”.

will the right answers come out?”
