This paper proposes a sufficient bootstrap method, which uses only the unique observations in the resamples, to assess the individual bioequivalence under 2 x 4 randomized crossover design. The finite sample performance of the proposed method is illustrated by extensive Monte Carlo simulations as well as a real-experimental data set, and the results are compared with those obtained by the traditional bootstrap technique. Our records reveal that the proposed method is a good competitor or even better than the classical percentile bootstrap confidence limits.
