Hello Statalist friends,
I'm studying the manual (v11) for the pk suite, and have 3 questions:
1. Regarding the "carry" variable created by -pkshape-, in the manual example (p. 1325), is "carry" simply an indicator that shows whether or not a measurement was made in the same period/treatment combination, so that if
	"carry"==0, then no carryover is possible, and if
	"carry"==A, then a carryover effect is possible, but no evidence yet?

2. Can -pkcross- be used in to compare treatment response (e.g. pain score) in an AB-BA crossover study design, that was not a test of a biopharmaceutical drug concentration?

3. -pkequiv- performs bioequivalence tests using serum levels of biopharmaceutical drug concentration. Can the command also be used instead to measure *any* continuous outcome, measured following some other non-pharmaceutical intervention?

Best wishes,
