Non-uniform bounds for the dermal patch problem via Stein's method

Kamonrat Kamjornkittikoon, Kritsana Neammanee, Nattakarn Chaidee*

ABSTRACT:     The number of doses in a dermal patch under the standard protocol of drug administration is analysed via a mathematical model. Goldstein and Zhang gave a uniform Berry-Esseen bound for the number of receptors active at the terminal time by using a version of Stein's method for bounded monotone size-biased couplings. In this paper, we generalize their work to the case of a non-uniform bound.
