Dear nmusers,
I have a data set which contains single and multiple ascending dose data.
The model development was initially performed on the single dose data.
I initially developed a model using ADVAN4 TRANS 2 (2 compartment linear
model with oral administration) which I later reparameterized into ADVAN6.
I expected to see some minor differences in parameter estimates, OFV etc
due to the change in subroutine but was surprised to see large differences
in both parameter estimates and OFV (+180 points) but also a significant
improvement in overall fit (graphically) while the data was the same. With
the ADVAN4 the model fit was particularly poor to parts of the multiple
dose data, with the ADVAN6 the overall fit to all data was much improved. I
was using NONMEM7.3 for the analysis.

I guess the ADVAN4 model gets stuck in a local minima, but using the final
estimates from the ADVAN6 model does not help. I would be grateful for an
explanation of the reasons why this happens.

I have included the two models below.
Kind regards,
Hanna Silber
