Fw: calculation of AUC

I second Bill's suggestion to work this out on your own for your specific
problem. This forum can help you with general questions and overall
approaches, but very specific queries like this are for you and your
colleagues to hash out.

RE: [NMusers] calculation of AUC

The easiest answer is to work it out. Do some simulations (without
variability) with multiple subjects with identical PK parameters BUT
different sampling times. Tabulate your AUCs and compare the results for
different sampling times!

Dear Ethan,
You need to provide more information on how you plan to calculate AUC
otherwise the question can?t be answered. It is of course possible to
calculate the AUC without any influence of the sampling frequency. You
should be able to find examples of how to do this in the NMusers archive.
See for example the answer from Mats Karlsson in this thread (

Hi all, to calculate AUC of one of the compartments using ADVAN6, if it is =

a fixed time interval, will the AUC be influenced by the frequncy of
sampling of the dataset within this interval or not?
