Average Bioequivalence

Description

The most commonly used design for ABE is a standard two-sequence and two-period crossover design. Ft is the fixed effect of the test formulation and Fr is the fixed effect of the reference formulation.

Ho: Ft-Fr ≤ δ_{L} or Ft-Fr ≤ δ_{U}

Ha: δ_{L} < Ft-Fr < δ_{U}

Usage

1
ABE(alpha, beta, sigma1.1, delta, epsilon)

Arguments

alpha

significance level

beta

power = 1- beta

sigma1.1

σ_{a.b} with a=1 and b=1.

delta

delta is the bioequivalence limit. here delta=0.223

epsilon

epsilon=Ft-Fr

Value

σ_{a.b}^{2}=σ_{D}^{2}+a*σ_{WT}^{2}+b*σ_{WR}^{2}
