test2x2: Bioequivalence test for a variable of a 2x2 study

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/test2x2.R

Description

It performs conventional bioequivalence test for 2x2 study. Basic assumption is that the variable is distributed as a log-normal distribution. This is SAS PROC GLM style. If you want PROC MIXED style use nlme::lme.

Usage

1
test2x2(bedata, Var)

Arguments

bedata

Data table name. This should have at least the following columns and a variable column to be tested. Var column values should be all positive values.

 GRP : Group or Sequence, 'RT' or 'TR'
 PRD : Period, 1 or 2
 SUBJ : Subject ID
 TRT : Treatment or Drug, 'R' or 'T'
Var

Variable to be tested. This should be one of the column names in bedata table. Usually 'AUClast' or 'Cmax'

Details

It tests Var variable equivalency from a 2x2 study. Current regulatory requirement is that the 90% confidence interval of geometric mean ratio (Test/Reference) should be within [0.8, 1.25].
