Re: [NMusers] Calculation of half life

Dear Santosh,
there are formulas to make the conversions, and I normally use the spreadsheet that you can download at this link:
http://cognigencorp.com/nonmem/nm/CONVERT.XLS

It is not very convenient If you want to do things in batches, but I guess you can do some "reverse engineering" and implement the code in NONMEM. I have done it for two-compartments, but I never needed it for three (which is a lot of coding).
If you do work out the NONMEM code - or anyone else already has it - please post it here, it could be useful.

Best regards,
Paolo

Dear all,
I am looking for ways to calculate t[1/2,lamda,z] the elimination phase half life, using a 3-compartment model. ADVAN 12 and TRANS6 seems to be a way. However, I am using the intercompartment clearance and volumes based parameterization, e.g. Q3,V3 etc..

half.life = log(2)/gamma

Could anyone please share NONMEM code to compute the half-life based on gamma?

Thanks so much in advance.

Best regards,
Santosh
