Comparison of different diagnostic criterion to evaluate nonlinear mixed-effects models

Background: The use of conditional weighted residual (CWRES) and post-hoc ETA (ηph) distribution properties, instead of weighted residual (WRES) distribution properties, as model diagnostic tools when using the first-order conditional (FOCE) algorithm in NONMEM, may give a more accurate picture of if and when a model is miss-specified. Aim: A simulation study was performed to compare these […]
