For humans, the population parameters database that comes with PK-Sim® includes information on the dependence of anatomical and physiological parameters relevant for PK-Sim® such as organ weights, blood flow rates, or tissue composition on age, gender, body weight, body mass index, which have been collected in a comprehensive literature search. Thus, when creating an individual of a given Age, Weight, and Height, the parameters will be adjusted based on the information included in the underlying database. There are three classes of parameters that will be adjusted:
In your case, Gastric Emptying time is one of those parameters where distribution data is available. As such, the percentile shown here represents the percentile of the value in the population (based on your Age, Height and Weight selection)
When you change the value, the percentile updates automatically based on the underlying distribution.
Hope that clarifies things,
Dear @msevestre ,thanks for your patiently explanation, actually I'm still confused.
