Bayesian Estimation in Bioequivalence Study
Lee, Seung-Chun;

The classical two-period, two-sequence crossover design is no longer sufficient to assess various demands in a bioequivalence study. For instance, to estimate the within-subject and between-subject variances of test and reference formulations separately, it is necessary to use a replicate design in which each subject receives at least the reference formulation in two periods. Several designs were studied to satisfy the demands. It is provided a unified Bayesian approach applicable to those study designs. The benefit of the method in the bioequivalence study is discussed.
