Association of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) null with numbers of basal cell carcinomas: use of a multivariate model to rank the relative importance of this polymorphism and those at other relevant loci. (1/133)

Glutathione S-transferase GSTM1 B and GSTT1 null, and cytochrome P450 CYP2D6 EM have been associated with cutaneous basal cell carcinoma (BCC) numbers, although their quantitative effects show that predisposition to many BCC is determined by an unknown number of further loci. We speculate that other loci that determine response to oxidative stress, such as NAD(H):quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) are candidates. Accordingly, we assessed the association between NQO1 null and BCC numbers primarily to rank NQO1 null in a model that included genotypes already associated with BCC numbers. We found that only 14 out of 457 cases (3.1%) were NQO1 null. This frequency did not increase in cases with characteristics linked with BCC numbers including gender, skin type, a truncal lesion or more than one new BCC at any presentation (MPP). However, the mean number of BCC in NQO1*0 homozygotes was greater than in wild-type allele homozygotes and heterozygotes, although the difference was not quite significant (P = 0.06). These data reflect the link between NQO1 null and BCC numbers in the 42 MPP cases rather than the whole case group. We identified an interaction between NQO1 null and GSTT1 null that was associated with more BCC (P = 0.04), although only four cases had this combination. The relative influence of NQO1 null was studied in a multivariate model that included: (i) 241 patients in whom GSTM1 B, GSTT1 null and CYP2D6 EM genotype data were available, and (ii) 101 patients in whom these genotypes, as well as data on GSTM3, CYP1A1 and melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor (MC1R) genotypes were available. NQO1 null (P = 0.001) and MC1R asp294/asp294 (P = 0.03) were linked with BCC numbers, and the association with CYP2D6 EM approached significance (P = 0.08). In a stepwise regression model only these genotypes were significantly associated with BCC numbers with NQO1 null being the most powerful predictor.  (+info)

A likelihood-based method of identifying contaminated lots of blood product. (2/133)

BACKGROUND: In 1994 a small cluster of hepatitis-C cases in Rhesus-negative women in Ireland prompted a nationwide screening programme for hepatitis-C antibodies in all anti-D recipients. A total of 55 386 women presented for screening and a history of exposure to anti-D was sought from all those testing positive and a sample of those testing negative. The resulting data comprised 620 antibody-positive and 1708 antibody-negative women with known exposure history, and interest was focused on using these data to estimate the infectivity of anti-D in the period 1970-1993. METHODS: Any exposure to anti-D provides an opportunity for infection, but the infection status at each exposure time is not observed. Instead, the available data from antibody testing only indicate whether at least one of the exposures resulted in infection. Using a simple Bernoulli model to describe the risk of infection in each year, the absence of information regarding which exposure(s) led to infection fits neatly into the framework of 'incomplete data'. Hence the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm provides estimates of the infectiousness of anti-D in each of the 24 years studied. RESULTS: The analysis highlighted the 1977 anti-D as a source of infection, a fact which was confirmed by laboratory investigation. Other suspect batches were also identified, helping to direct the efforts of laboratory investigators. CONCLUSIONS: We have presented a method to estimate the risk of infection at each exposure time from multiple exposure data. The method can also be used to estimate transmission rates and the risk associated with different sources of infection in a range of infectious disease applications.  (+info)

A priori estimation of accuracy and of the number of wells to be employed in limiting dilution assays. (3/133)

The use of limiting dilution assay (LDA) for assessing the frequency of responders in a cell population is a method extensively used by immunologists. A series of studies addressing the statistical method of choice in an LDA have been published. However, none of these studies has addressed the point of how many wells should be employed in a given assay. The objective of this study was to demonstrate how a researcher can predict the number of wells that should be employed in order to obtain results with a given accuracy, and, therefore, to help in choosing a better experimental design to fulfill one's expectations. We present the rationale underlying the expected relative error computation based on simple binomial distributions. A series of simulated in machina experiments were performed to test the validity of the a priori computation of expected errors, thus confirming the predictions. The step-by-step procedure of the relative error estimation is given. We also discuss the constraints under which an LDA must be performed.  (+info)

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and liver-related mortality: a population-based cohort study in southern Italy. The Association for the Study of Liver Disease in Puglia. (4/133)

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a common cause of chronic liver diseases but the degree to which these diseases contribute to liver-related mortality is not well established. The aim of this study was to estimate the absolute and relative effects of HCV infection on liver-related mortality. METHODS: A population random sample of 2472 subjects aged > or = 30 years was enrolled and followed up from 1985 to 1996. At enrollment, a structured interview and a clinical evaluation were performed. Serum samples were tested using HCV ELISA and RIBA HCV. Outcomes were overall and liver-related mortality and tracing procedures included review of office and hospital records, death certificates, and interviews with general practitioners, attending hospital and next of kin. Statistical analysis was performed using Poisson and binomial prospective data regression. RESULTS: Crude overall and liver-related mortality rates were 7.66 (95% CI : 6.68-8.79) and 0.9 (95% CI : 0.3-2.2) per 10(3) person-years, respectively. For HCV infection effect, incidence rate ratio and difference (per 10(3) person-year), risk ratio and difference were 27.5 (95% CI : 6.5-115.6), 4 (95% CI : 3-7), 33.1 (95% CI : 7.8- 139.3) and 0.06 (95% CI : 0.04-0.08), respectively; all measures were adjusted for age at death, sex and daily alcohol intake. CONCLUSIONS: The results show a strong relative but weak absolute effect of HCV infection on liver-related mortality in the 10-year period considered. Poisson and binomial models are virtually equivalent, but the choice of the summarizing measure of effect may have a different impact on health policy.  (+info)

Molecular genetic maps in wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides: genome-wide coverage, massive negative interference, and putative quasi-linkage. (5/133)

The main objectives of the study reported here were to construct a molecular map of wild emmer wheat, Triticum dicoccoides, to characterize the marker-related anatomy of the genome, and to evaluate segregation and recombination patterns upon crossing T. dicoccoides with its domesticated descendant Triticum durum (cultivar Langdon). The total map length exceeded 3000 cM and possibly covered the entire tetraploid genome (AABB). Clusters of molecular markers were observed on most of the 14 chromosomes. AFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism) markers manifested a random distribution among homologous groups, but not among genomes and chromosomes. Genetic differentiation between T. dicoccoides and T. durum was attributed mainly to the B genome as revealed by AFLP markers. The segregation-distorted markers were mainly clustered on 4A, 5A, and 5B chromosomes. Homeoalleles, differentially conferring the vigor of gametes, might be responsible for the distortion on 5A and 5B chromosomes. Quasilinkage, deviation from free recombination between markers of nonhomologous chromosomes, was discovered. Massive negative interference was observed in most of the chromosomes (an excess of double crossovers in adjacent intervals relative to the expected rates on the assumption of no interference). The general pattern of distribution of islands of negative interference included near-centromeric location, spanning the centromere, and median/subterminal location.

The targeting of somatic hypermutation closely resembles that of meiotic mutation. (6/133)

We have compared the microsequence specificity of mutations introduced during somatic hypermutation (SH) and those introduced meiotically during neutral evolution. We have minimized the effects of selection by studying nonproductive (hence unselected) Ig V region genes for somatic mutations and processed pseudogenes for meiotic mutations. We find that the two sets of patterns are very similar: the mutabilities of nucleotide triplets are positively correlated between the somatic and meiotic sets. The major differences that do exist fall into three distinct categories: 1) The mutability is sharply higher at CG dinucleotides under meiotic but not somatic mutation. 2) The complementary triplets AGC and GCT are much more mutable under somatic than under meiotic mutation. 3) Triplets of the form WAN (W = T or A) are uniformly more mutable under somatic than under meiotic mutation. Nevertheless, the relative mutabilities both within this set and within the SAN (S = G or C) triplets are highly correlated with those under meiotic mutation. We also find that the somatic triplet specificity is strongly symmetric under strand exchange for A/T triplets as well as for G/C triplets in spite of the strong predominance of A over T mutations. Thus, we suggest that somatic mutation has at least two distinct components: one that specifically targets AGC/GCT triplets and another that acts as true catalysis of meiotic mutation.  (+info)

Allelic imbalance on chromosomes 13 and 17 and mutation analysis of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in monozygotic twins concordant for breast cancer. (7/133)

To study genetic changes associated with the development of breast cancer and the extent of its hereditary predisposition, paraffin-embedded tissue samples were obtained from monozygotic twin pairs concordant for breast cancer through the linked Swedish Twin and Cancer Registries. DNA samples extracted from the matched tumour and normal tissues of nine twin pairs were analysed for allelic imbalance using a series of microsatellite markers on chromosomes 13 and 17, containing loci with known tumour suppressor genes. Multiple losses of constitutional heterozygosity (LOH), consistent with a loss of large genomic region, the whole chromosome or chromosome arm, was found in at least three pairs of twins. One double mitotic crossover was identified in one tumour sample in a pair concordant for LOH at multiple loci on both chromosomes. Recombination breakpoints were mapped to regions delineated by D13S218 and D13S263, and D13S155 and D13S279, respectively. In general, no genetic effect of losing the same allele within a twin pair was found. However, for one marker at chromosome 13 (D13S328, between the BRCA2 and the RB-1 loci) and two markers on chromosome 17 (D17S786, distal to the p53 locus, and D17S855, an intragenic BRCA1 marker) the proportion of twin pairs with the same LOH was significantly higher than expected. These regions may reflect hereditary genomic changes in our sample set. In addition, tumour DNA samples from a subset of 12 twin pairs were analysed for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations using exon-by-exon single-strand conformation polymorphism analysis. Two unclassified BRCA2 variants, with a putative pathogenic effect, were identified, but no pathogenic alterations were found in the BRCA1 gene.  (+info)

Incidence, aetiology, and outcome of non-traumatic coma: a population based study. (8/133)

AIM: To determine the incidence, presentation, aetiology, and outcome of non-traumatic coma in children aged between 1 month and 16 years. METHODS: In this prospective, population based, epidemiological study in the former Northern NHS region of the UK, cases were notified following any hospital admission or community death associated with non-traumatic coma. Coma was defined as a Glasgow Coma Score below 12 for more than six hours. RESULTS: The incidence of non-traumatic coma was 30.8 per 100 000 children under 16 per year (6.0 per 100 000 general population per year). The age specific incidence was notably higher in the first year of life (160 per 100 000 children per year). CNS specific presentations became commoner with increasing age. In infants, nearly two thirds of presentations were with non-specific, systemic signs. Infection was the commonest overall aetiology. Aetiology remained unknown in 14% despite extensive investigation and/or autopsy. Mortality was highly dependent on aetiology, with aetiology specific mortality rates varying from 3% to 84%. With follow up to approximately 12 months, overall series mortality was 46%.  (+info)

We discuss the use of the beta-binomial distribution for the description of plant disease incidence data, collected on the basis of scoring plants as either diseased or healthy . The beta-binomial is a discrete probability distribution derived by regarding the probability of a plant being diseased (a constant in the binomial distribution) as a beta-distributed variable. An important characteristic of the beta-binomial is that its variance is larger than that of the binomial distribution with the same mean. The beta-binomial distribution, therefore, may serve to describe aggregated disease incidence data. Using maximum likelihood, we estimated beta-binomial parameters p (mean disease incidence) and ϑ (an index of aggregation) for four previously published sets of disease incidence data in which there were some indications of aggregation. Goodness-of-fit tests showed that, in all these cases, the beta-binomial provided a good description of the observed data and resulted in a better fit than did ...

A zero-inflated model assumes that zero outcome is due to two different processes. For instance, in the example of fishing presented here, the two processes are that a subject has gone fishing vs. not gone fishing. If not gone fishing, the only outcome possible is zero. If gone fishing, it is then a count process. The two parts of the a zero-inflated model are a binary model, usually a logit model to model which of the two processes the zero outcome is associated with and a count model, in this case, a negative binomial model, to model the count process. The expected count is expressed as a combination of the two processes. Taking the example of fishing again:. $$ E(n_{\text{fish caught}} = k) = P(\text{not gone fishing}) * 0 + P(\text{gone fishing}) * E(y = k , \text{gone fishing}) $$. To understand the zero-inflated negative binomial regression, lets start with the negative binomial model. There are multiple parameterizations of the negative binomial model, we focus on NB2. The negative ...
Many ecological applications, like the study of mortality rates, require the estimation of proportions and confidence intervals for them. The traditional way of doing this applies the binomial distribution, which describes the outcome of a series of Bernoulli trials. This distribution assumes that observations are independent and the probability of success is the same for all the individual observations. Both assumptions are obviously false in many cases. I show how to apply bootstrap and the Poisson binomial distribution (a generalization of the binomial distribution) to the estimation of proportions. Any information at the individual level would result in better (narrower) confidence intervals around the estimation of proportions. As a case study, I applied this method to the calculation of mortality rates in a forest plot of tropical trees in Lambir Hills National Park, Malaysia. I calculated central estimates and 95% confidence intervals for species-level mortality rates for 1,007 tree ...
The central limit theorem applies provides the foundation for approximation of negative binomial distribution by Normal distribution. Each negative binomial random variable, \(V_k \sim NB(r,p)\), may be expressed as a sum of k independent, identically distributed (geometric) random variables, i.e., \( V_k = \sum_{i=1}^k(X_i}\), where \( X_i \sim Geometric(q)\). The negative binomial parameters expressed as functions of k and p are given by \(r= \) and \(p=\fract{q}{1+q}\). In various scientific applications, given a large k, the distribution of \(V_k\) is approximately normal with mean and variance given by \(\mu=\fract{pk}{(1-p)^2}\) and \(\sigma^2=\fract{pk}{(1-p)^2}\), as \(k \longrightarrow \infty\). Depending on the parameter p, k may need to be rather large for the approximation to work well. Also, when using the normal approximation, we should remember to use the continuity correction, since the negative binomial and Normal distributions are discrete and continuous, respectively. ...
This paper presents an original methodology to estimate delay risk a few days before operations with generalized linear models. These models represent a given variable with any distribution from the exponential family, allowing to compute for any subject its own probability distribution according to its features. This methodology is applied on small delays (less than 20 minutes) of high-speed trains arriving at a major french station. Several distributions are tested to fit delay data and three scenarios are evaluated: a single GLM with a negative binomial distribution and two two-part models using both a logistic regression as first part to compute the probability of arriving on time, and a second part using a negative binomial or a lognormal distribution to obtain the probabilities associated with positive delay values. This paper also proposes a validation methodology to assess the quality of these probabilistic predictions based on two aspects: calibration and discrimination.
Transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) has become a key technology in transcriptome studies because it can quantify overall expression levels and the degree of alternative splicing for each gene simultaneously. Many methods and tools, including quite a few R / Bioconductor packages, have been developed to deal with RNA-Seq data for differential expression analysis and thereafter functional analysis aiming at novel biological and biomedical discoveries. However, those tools mainly focus on each genes overall expression and may miss the opportunities for discoveries regarding alternative splicing or the combination of the two.. SeqGSEA is novel R / Bioconductor package to derive biological insight by integrating differential expression (DE) and differential splicing (DS) from RNA-Seq data with functional gene set analysis. Due to the digital feature of RNA-Seq count data, the package utilizes negative binomial distributions for statistical modeling to first score differential expression and splicing ...

N2 - Surprisingly, survival from a diagnosis of lung cancer has been found to be longer for those who experienced a previous cancer than for those with no previous cancer. A possible explanation is lead-time bias, which, by advancing the time of diagnosis, apparently extends survival among those with a previous cancer even when they enjoy no real clinical advantage. We propose a discrete parametric model to jointly describe survival in a no-previous-cancer group (where, by definition, lead-time bias cannot exist) and in a previous-cancer group (where lead-time bias is possible). We model the lead time with a negative binomial distribution and the post-lead-time survival with a linear spline on the logit hazard scale, which allows for survival to differ between ...
We present two models for estimating the probabilities of future earthquakes in California, to be tested in the Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability (CSEP). The first, time-independent model, modified from Helmstetter et al (2007), provides five-year forecasts for magnitudes m , 4.95. We show that large quakes occur on average near the locations of small m , 2 events, so that a high-resolution estimate of the spatial distribution of future large quakes is obtained from the locations of the numerous small events. We employ an adaptive spatial kernel of optimized bandwidth and assume a universal, tapered Gutenberg-Richter distribution. In retrospective tests, we show that no Poisson forecast could capture the observed variability. We therefore also test forecasts using a negative binomial distribution for the number of events. We modify existing likelihood-based tests to better evaluate the spatial forecast. Our time-dependent model, an Epidemic Type Aftershock Sequence (ETAS) ...
While a new generation of computational statistics algorithms and availability of data streams raises the potential for recurrently regrounding dynamic models with incoming observations, the effectiveness of such arrangements can be highly subject to specifics of the configuration (e.g., frequency of sampling and representation of behaviour change), and there has been little attempt to identify effective configurations. Combining dynamic models with particle filtering, we explored a solution focusing on creating quickly formulated models regrounded automatically and recurrently as new data becomes available. Given a latent underlying case count, we assumed that observed incident case counts followed a negative binomial distribution. In accordance with the condensation algorithm, each such observation led to updating of particle weights. We evaluated the effectiveness of various particle filtering configurations against each other and against an approach without particle filtering according to the
The ages at onset of 245 female and 211 male psoriasis (Ps) patients were recorded. The distribution of age of onset in both sexes is bimodal, with separation at the age of 40 years into an early-onset group and a late-onset group. These distributions were normal (Gaussian) with equal variances. These data are compatible with the hypothesis that there are two genotypes for Ps. Further evidence for this hypothesis is provided by the relationship between age of onset and number of affected relatives. The latter, corrected for age at time of study, demonstrates a mixture of two negative binomial distributions. also with likely separation at the age of 40 years. The age distribution of Ps patients reflects the bimodality of age of onset, but with larger means and variances.. ...

Generalized Linear Models (GLMs) were performed with a randomized component corresponding to the percentage of germination for a normal distribution or to the number of germinated seeds for a binomial distribution. Lower levels of Akaikess Information Criterion (AIC) and Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC) combined, data adherence to simulated envelopes of normal plots and corrected confidence intervals for the means guaranteed the binomial model a better fit, justifying the importance of GLMs with binomial distribution. Some authors criticize the inappropriate use of analysis of variance (ANOVA) for discrete data such as copaiba oil, but we noted that all ...

The probability of default (PD) estimation is an important process for financial institutions. The difficulty of the estimation depends on the correlations between borrowers. In this paper, we introduce a hierarchical Bayesian estimation method using the beta binomial distribution, and consider a multi-year case with a temporal correlation. A phase transition occurs when the temporal correlation decays by power decay. When the power index is less than one, the PD estimator does not converge. It is difficult to estimate the PD with the limited historical data. Conversely, when the power index is greater than one, the convergence is the same as that of the binomial distribution. We provide a condition for the estimation of the PD and discuss the universality class of the phase transition. We investigate the empirical default data history of rating agencies, and their Fourier transformations to confirm the the correlation decay equation. The power spectrum of the decay history seems to be 1/f of ...
Looking at the Wikipedia page for Goodness of Fit scares me. I seem to remember a least-squares regression analysis which was used to determine causality vs correlation that looked a bit like this.

Compute the half-width of a confidence interval for a binomial proportion or the difference between two proportions, given the sample size(s), estimated proportion(s), and confidence level.
The TREND option in the TABLES statement provides the Cochran-Armitage test for trend, which tests for trend in binomial proportions across levels of a single factor or covariate. This test is appropriate for a two-way table where one variable has two levels and the other variable is ordinal. The two-level variable represents the response, and the other variable represents an explanatory variable with ordered levels. When the two-way has two columns and R rows, PROC FREQ tests for trend across the R levels of the row variable, and the binomial proportion is computed as the proportion of observations in the first column. When the table has two rows and C columns, PROC FREQ tests for trend across the C levels of the column variable, and the binomial proportion is computed as the proportion of observations in the first row. The trend test is based on the regression coefficient for the weighted linear regression of the binomial proportions on the scores of the explanatory variable levels. See ...
Once you have these you add extra constraints to get your pdf. For example a uniform distribution is based on the axiom that every possibility of the domain has the same chance as every other possibility. The binomial is built on the idea that there are only two choices and that every individual Bernoulli trial within the space is independent of every other one. The Poisson process is a special kind of Binomial distribution ...

Being somewhat open minded, I decided to have a new look at Bayes, and therefore got "Doing Bayesian Data Analysis: A Tutorial with R and BUGS". Its been highly reviewed, and has all those cute doggies on the cover (not explained, either). The first half of the book is built on Bernoulli and binomial distribution; a lot of coin flipping. Chapter 11 gets to the heart of the matter, "Null Hypothesis Significance Testing" (NHST, for short). Those who embrace Bayes (nearly?) universally object to usual statistical testing and confidence interval estimation, because theyre based on testing whether values equal, as assumed. This is the Null Hypothesis: that two means are equal, for example. We assume that two samples (or one sample compared to a known control) have the same value for the mean, and set about to test whether the data support that equality. Depending on what the data say, we either accept or reject the null hypothesis. We dont get to say that the true mean (in this example) is the ...

Here, the coverage probability is only 94.167 percent.. I understand that sample standard deviation (sample variance squared) is a (slightly) mean-biased (?) estimator of population standard deviation. Is the coverage probability above related to this or to the median-bias of sample variance. I recognize that there are significant coverage problems with the Wald confidence interval for the binomial distribution (see https://projecteuclid.org/euclid.ss/1009213286), Poisson distribution, etc. I didnt realize that this was the case even for the normal distribution.. Any help in understanding the above would be much appreciated. If Ive simply made a coding error, please do point this out. Otherwise, could someone please suggest a better confidence interval than the Wald for normal and other continuous distributions with a small sample size and/or refer me to any relevant literature?.

A probability distribution can either be univariate or multivariate. A univariate distribution gives the probabilities of a single random variable taking on various alternative values; a multivariate distribution (a joint probability distribution) gives the probabilities of a random vector-a set of two or more random variables-taking on various combinations of values. Important and commonly encountered univariate probability distributions include the binomial distribution, the hypergeometric distribution, and the normal distribution. The multivariate normal distribution is a commonly encountered multivariate distribution.. See also: Wikipedia. ...

Background: With increasing computer power, simulating the dynamics of complex systems in chemistry and biology is becoming increasingly routine. The modelling of individual reactions in (bio)chemical systems involves a large number of random events that can be simulated by the stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA). The key quantity is the step size, or waiting time, τ, whose value inversely depends on the size of the propensities of the different channel reactions and which needs to be re-evaluated after every firing event. Such a discrete event simulation may be extremely expensive, in particular for stiff systems where τ can be very short due to the fast kinetics of some of the channel reactions. Several alternative methods have been put forward to increase the integration step size. The so-called τ-leap approach takes a larger step size by allowing all the reactions to fire, from a Poisson or Binomial distribution, within that step. Although the expected value for the different species in ...
The ((Formula presented.)) EA with mutation probability c / n, where (Formula presented.) is an arbitrary constant, is studied for the classical OneMax function. Its expected optimization time is analyzed exactly (up to lower order terms) as a function of c and (Formula presented.). It turns out that 1 / n is the only optimal mutation probability if (Formula presented.), which is the cut-off point for linear speed-up. However, if (Formula presented.) is above this cut-off point then the standard mutation probability 1 / n is no longer the only optimal choice. Instead, the expected number of generations is (up to lower order terms) independent of c, irrespectively of it being less than 1 or greater. The theoretical results are obtained by a careful study of order statistics of the binomial distribution and variable drift theorems for upper and lower bounds. Experimental supplements shed light on the optimal mutation probability for small problem sizes ...
Notes: The unbiased estimation of the variance was used for the computation of the standard deviation (i.e. the number of observations minus one was used as a divisor). The sample skewness was computed without sample corrections (i.e. the skewness was computed as the square root of the number of observations times the sum of the third powers of deviations from the mean divided by the 3/2 power of the sum of the squares of deviations from the mean). Similarly, the sample kurtosis was computed as the number of observations times the sum of the fourth powers of deviations from the mean divided by the second power of the sum of the squares of deviations from the mean.. The confidence interval for mean was computed by using the Student t-distribution. The confidence intervals for median and percentiles were computed nonparametrically by using the binomial distribution (see, e.g., Conover, Practical Nonparametric Statistics, pp. 143 - 148).. ...

A recent post on Spiegelhalters blog gives data and produces a funnel plot for the proportion of children that are placed with adoptive parents within 12 months. The data is aggregated for various regions in England, which are called "local authorities." (You can download the data in a CSV file.) To give you some idea of the data, one authority (Kent) placed 162 out of 235 children (69%) with adoptive parents within 12 months. Another (Chesire East) handled only 15 cases and placed 10 of the children (67%). A funnel plot (shown below) is a way to compare the proportion of children that are placed within 12 months for each of 143 regions. The horizontal line shows the nationwide proportion of children that are placed within 12 months. The funnel-shaped curves are the 95% and 99.8% quantile curves under the assumption that proportions are sampled from a binomial distribution for which the probability of "success" (placing a child) equals the national average. Because a statistic computed on a ...

The secondary statistical goal is to establish non-inferiority of CXA-201 to levofloxacin with respect to the composite microbiological eradication and clinical cure rate in the ME at TOC population. A 95% CI (normal approximation to the binomial distribution) around the treatment difference (CXA-201 minus levofloxacin) will be calculated. CXA-201 will be considered non-inferior to levofloxacin if the lower limit of the 95% CI around the treatment difference (CXA-201 minus levofloxacin) is greater than minus 10%. As sensitivity analyses, an appropriate statistical method (e.g., propensity score) will be used to adjust for potential confounding covariates associated with treatment assignment when constructing CIs around the treatment differences ...
In families with X-linked chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), heterozygous females have two stable populations of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) in their blood; one normal, the other, deficient in oxygen metabolism. The two types of PMN can be distinguished by the ability or lack of ability to reduce nitroblue tetrazolium dye. The variation in the percent normal PMN among 11 CGD heterozygotes was shown to follow a binomial distribution based on eight independent trials and a chance of success of 50%. This is consistent with the occurrence of X-chromosome inactivation (lyonization) when eight embryonic founder cells for the hematopoietic system are present. Serial determinations of the percent normal PMN in individual heterozygotes showed very limited variability (standard deviations ranged from 2.0% to 5.2%) most of which could be ascribed to experimental error. An estimate of the remaining variation (residual variance) was introduced into a well-known formula to calculate the appropriate ...
In inferential statistics, any significance test that makes no assumptions about the precise distribution or form of the sampled population. Although the term distribution-free is often used interchangeably with non-parametric, strictly speaking it is possible for a test to be distribution-free without being non-parametric; for example the sign test makes no assumptions about the distribution of the sampled population but tests the hypothesis that a certain parameter of the binomial distribution (the proportion of successes) is 1/2, so it is not really non-parametric. See also non-parametric statistics, probability distribution. ...
Introduction: Lung cancer, of which 85% is non-small cell (NSCLC), is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. Copy number variations (CNVs) in lung adenocarcinoma do not occur randomly in the genome, but are positionally clustered. However, the functional significance of gene copy number changes remains unclear. We characterized genome-wide copy number profiles in non-small cell lung cancer both positionally and functionally. Methods: A series of 301 tumor samples was collected from NSCLC patients in the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston, MA (N=202) and National Institute of Occupational Health in Norway (N=99). Copy numbers were evaluated in genomic DNA extracted from micro-dissected tumor tissue with at least 70% tumor cellularity using dense single nucleotide polymorphism arrays. Inferred copy numbers were obtained with dCHIP, and significance of CNVs for each locus was evaluated with binomial distribution. Gene set enrichment analysis algorithm was used to ...

After heuristically deriving Stirlings approximation in the first video segment, we outline a simple example of the central limit theorem for the case of the binomial distribution. In the final segment, we explain how the central limit theorem is used to suggest that physical experiments are characterized by normally-distributed (Gaussian) fluctuations while fluctuations in biological experiments are said to fill out log-normal distributions.

Semiconducting polymers doped with a minority fraction of energy transfer acceptors feature a sensitive coupling between chain conformation and fluorescence emission, that can be harnessed for advanced solution-based molecular sensing and diagnostics. While it is known that chain length strongly affects chain conformation, and its response to external cues, the effects of chain length on the emission patterns in chromophore-doped conjugated polymers remains incompletely understood. In this paper, we explore chain-length dependent emission in two different acceptor-doped polyfluorenes. We show how the binomial distribution of acceptor incorporation, during the probabilistic polycondensation reaction, creates a strong chain-length dependency in the optical properties of this class of luminescent polymers. In addition, we also find that the intrachain exciton migration rate is chain-length dependent, giving rise to additional complexity. Both effects combined, make for the need to develop sensoric

The modelling approach is based on stock-and-flow modelling (commonly known as System Dynamics), in which a system is represented as a set of pools with flows into, out of and between them. In this case, the pools represent number of people.. In conventional System Dynamics, the stocks and flows represent the amount and rate-of-flow of some substance (e.g. water). These models generally involve values on a continuous scale (e.g. 10.357 litres), and are usually deterministic (you get the same result each time you run the same model).. It is not appropriate to model small numbers of individuals in this way. Therefore, this model has been engineered so that all the flows are in terms of whole (integer) numbers. Because of this, the model needs to use stochastic (probabilistic) methods to decide randomly whether the value of a flow will be 0, 1, 2 or 3 individuals if the mean rate is (for example) 1.357. The main method used is to sample from a binomial distribution, to generate a number of ...
Ascl1+ progenitors did not significantly generate RGCs at any time point. Although we cannot formally rule out that a biologically relevant, rare RGC subtype(s) derives from the Ascl1 lineage, our data strongly argue against this possibility. First, Ascl1-GFP and pan-Brn3 co-expression data suggests that this putative subtype would have to be exceedingly rare during development (one cell or fewer per retina) (binomial distribution, P,0.00001, see Table S5 in the supplementary material). Second, whereas Brn3a/b/c expression might not label all ganglion cell subtypes (Badea and Nathans, 2011), retrograde dextran uptake labels all RGCs; nonetheless, we did not observe a significant number of Brn3+ or dextran-labeled RGCs in the Ascl1 lineage.. Retroviral lineage-tracing studies have shown that all seven retinal cell types derive from a common progenitor population (Turner and Cepko, 1987; Turner et al., 1990). However, throughout most of retinal development, several cell types are being formed ...

The SEQDESIGN procedure provides sample size computation for two one-sample tests: normal mean and binomial proportion. The required sample size depends on the variance of the response variable-that is, the sample proportion for a binomial proportion test. In a typical clinical trial, a hypothesis is designed to reject, not accept, the null hypothesis to show the evidence for the alternative hypothesis. Thus, in most cases, the proportion under the alternative hypothesis is used to derive the required sample size. For a test of the binomial proportion, the REF=NULLPROP and REF=PROP options use proportions under the null and alternative hypotheses, respectively. ...

Within the context of the binomial model, we analyse sequences of values that are almost-uniform and we discuss a prediction method called the frequent outcome approach, in which the outcome that has occurred the most in the observed trials is the most likely to occur again. Using this prediction method we derive probability statements for the prior probability of correct prediction, conditional on the underlying parameter value in the binomial model. We show that this prediction method converges to a level of accuracy that is equivalent to ideal prediction based on knowledge of the model parameter.. • The duplication formula derived from the normal distribution ...

A ratio below 1 suggests that you have under-dispersion. However, 0.69 is not very small and might be due to sampling variation, particularly since you have only 24 observations in total, so I would not be too concerned at this point.. Under-dispersion can arise from a poorly specified model. If you had more data I would suggest trying a random slopes model and possibly a model with an autocorrelation structure. Bootstrapping is another option, but again, with so little data, it may not be very reliable.. Note also that your random intercept has very low variance, so you might try comparing the model with a regular ...
Downloadable! Traffic-related fatalities in the UK have fallen dramatically over the last 30 years by about 50%. This decline has been observed in many other developed countries with similar rates of reduction. Many factors have been associated with this decline, including safer vehicle design, increased seat-belt use, changing demographics, and improved infrastructure. One factor not normally considered is the role that improved medical technology may have in reducing total traffic-related fatalities. This study analyzed cross-sectional time-series data in the UK to examine this relationship. Various proxies for medical technology improvement were included in a fixed effects negative binomial model to assess whether they are associated with reductions in traffic-related fatalities. Various demographic variables, such as age cohorts, GDP and changes in per-capita income are also included. The statistical methods employed control for heterogeneity in the data and therefore other factors that may affect
The analysis of length of stay and its determinants remains important in tourism due to its significant implications for tourism management. Results from previous studies show conflicting effects of the two central factors of length of stay: distance and first-time visitation. Hence, taking into account the not always unambiguous effect of distance and the variety-seeking and inertial behaviors of repeat visitation, the objective of this research is to add to the extant literature further empirical evidence. Data were collected from 908 U.S. visitors to a tourism destination in the Atlantic Coast of the United States and analyzed using the truncated negative binomial models. A positive impact of both distance and first-time visitation on length of stay is found. Managerial implications are provided.. ...
The effect of in-situ or redistributed stress on solute transport in fractured rocks is one of the major concerns for many subsurface engineering problems. However, it remains poorly understood due to the difficulties in experiments and numerical modeling. The main aim of this thesis is to systematically investigate the influences of stress on solute transport in fractured rocks, at scales of single fractures and fracture networks, respectively.. For a single fracture embedded in a porous rock matrix, a closed-form solution was derived for modeling the coupled stress-flow-transport processes without considering damage on the fracture surfaces. Afterwards, a retardation coefficient model was developed to consider the influences of damage of the fracture surfaces during shear processes on the solute sorption. Integrated with particle mechanics models, a numerical procedure was proposed to investigate the effects of gouge generation and microcrack development in the damaged zones of fracture on the ...

In the model presented here, mutation occurs during meiosis. Mutation thus occurs prior to selection in haploids and after selection, prior to mating, in diploids (Figure 2). For this reason, haploids entering selection have a higher frequency of the deleterious allele than diploids entering selection. This difference is reflected in the mean fitness of haploids vs. diploids as seen in Equation 4. By comparing Equations 4 and 6, it is clear that diploids can have a mean fitness advantage over haploids, even in situations where the deleterious allele is partially dominant (h , ½), and this is seen in Figure 3. Meiotic mutation thus causes diploidy to be favored over a larger range than seen in previous models because the frequency of the deleterious allele in haploids entering selection is greater than in diploids.. The difference in the frequency of the deleterious allele in haploids vs. diploids entering selection is affected by the resident level of diploidy in the population. In particular, ...

The large number of individuals in Scotland who became infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the 1970s and 1980s leads us to expect liver-related morbidity and mortality to increase in the coming years. We investigated the contribution of HCV to liver-related mortality in the period January 1991 to June 2006. The study population consisted of 26,861 individuals whose death record mentioned a liver-related cause (underlying or contributing). Record-linkage to the national HCV Diagnosis database supplied HCV-diagnosed status for the study population. The proportion diagnosed with HCV among people dying from a liver-related cause rose from 2.8% (1995-1997) to 4.4% (2004-June 2006); the largest increase occurred in those aged 35-44 years at death (7% to 17%). Among all deaths from a liver-related cause, an HCV-positive diagnosis was more likely in those who died in 2001 or later than those who died in 1995-1997 (2001-2003: odds ratio=1.4, 95% confidence interval: 1.1-1.7; 2004-June 2006: 1.6, 1.3-2.0

Heart Health. Cardiovascular death is the number one cause of death in NAFLD patients and survival rates are lower in patients with multiple aspects of metabolic syndrome. This is a big concern for me because the more these cardiovascular associations are made, the more "preventive" drugs will be given to patients to try and lower mortality. Unfortunately allopathic medicine hasnt gotten the memo yet that drugs for cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes will all worsen heart disease because they all lower magnesium in the body.. Liver Cirrhosis and Cancer. Its quite scary reading about NASH as the fastest growing cause of liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular cancer, liver transplant, and liver-related mortality. It is only 3-5% of the NAFLD population but apparently there is no way of knowing who will develop the fibrosis related to NASH. I suppose the scare tactics are meant to get patients taking better care of their health, and more importantly for the commercial aspect of taking lots of ...
Chronic hepatitis C is one of the major causes of chronic liver disease and a global health and economic burden of our time, which affects almost 3 % of the worlds population. Virus elimination and effective treatment are associated with a decreased incidence of hepatocelullar carcinoma, liver-related mortality and all-cause mortality in affected patients. The progress of the research in the field of viral genetics and pathophysiologic mechanisms in the last decade has resulted in significant improvements in pharmacotherapy and treatment outcomes with increased possibilities of a permanent cure. However, the real evolution, or better, revolution in pharmacotherapy is happening in the last two years with the development of new direct antiviral agents, which greatly facilitate treatment and shorten its duration with a better end-result. By approving and making interferon-free modalities available in the EU, USA and Japan the role of previous treatment approaches is being all the more reduced, ...

Appropriate modelling of the mean-variance relationship in DGE data is important for making inferences about differential expression. However, the standard approach to visualizing the mean-variance relationship is not appropriate for general, complicated experimental designs that require generalized linear models (GLMs) for analysis. Here are functions to compute standardized residuals from a Poisson GLM and plot them for bins based on overall expression level of genes as a way to visualize the mean-variance relationship. A rough estimate of the dispersion parameter can also be obtained from the standardized residuals.
Let $X_i, Y_i$ be i.i.d Bernoulli $0/1$ random variables with $\mathbb{E}[X_i] = p$ and $\mathbb{E}[Y_i] = q$.. Let \begin{align*} X &= X_1 X_2 + Χ_2 Χ_3 + \ldots +X_{n-2} X_{n-1}+ X_{n-1} X_n\\ Y &= Y_1 Y_2 + Y_2 Y_3 + \ldots +Y_{n-2} Y_{n-1}+ Y_{n-1} Y_n \end{align*}. I would like to get an upper bound on the total variation distance of $X$ and $Y$.. Right now I have the following bound using data processing, and Pinskers inequalities.. \begin{align*} d_{tv}(X,Y) &\leq d_{tv}((X_1,\ldots,X_n),(Y_1, \ldots, Y_n)) \\ &\leq \sqrt{\frac12 D((X_1,\ldots,X_n)\,(Y_1, \ldots, Y_n))} \\ &= \sqrt{\frac{n}{2} D(X_1\,Y_1)} \\ &= \sqrt{\frac{n}{2} \left(p \log \frac{p}{q} + (1-p) \log \frac{1-p}{1-q} \right)}\\ &\leq 4 \sqrt{\frac{n}{(1-p)p}} , p-q, \end{align*}. I would like to get a better upper bound, since I suspect that the correct bound should be $4 \sqrt{\frac{n}{(1-p)}} , p-q,$..

AIDS Insights From the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 Katrina F. Ortblad, Rafael Lozano, Christopher J.L. Murray AIDS. 2013;27(13):2003-2017. Abstract and Introduction Abstract Objectives: To evaluate the global and country-level burden of HIV/AIDS relative to 291 other causes of disease burden from 1980 to 2010 using the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (GBD 2010) as the vehicle for exploration. Methods: HIV/AIDS burden estimates were derived elsewhere as a part of GBD 2010, a comprehensive assessment of the magnitude of 291 diseases and injuries from 1990 to 2010 for 187 countries. In GBD 2010, disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) are used as the measurement of disease burden. DALY estimates for HIV/AIDS come from UNAIDS 2012 prevalence and mortality estimates, GBD 2010 disability weights and mortality estimates derived from quality vital registration data. Results: Despite recent declines in global HIV/AIDS mortality, HIV/AIDS was still the fifth leading cause of global DALYs in ...

Bernoullis principle. Swiss mathematician Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was the first person to study fluid flow mathematically. For his research, Bernoulli imagined a completely nonviscous and incompressible or ideal fluid. In this way, he did not have to worry about all the many complications that are present in real examples of fluid flow. The mathematical equations Bernoulli worked out represent only ideal situations, then, but they are useful in many real-life situations. A simple way to understand Bernoullis result is to picture water flowing through a horizontal pipe with a diameter of 4 inches (10 centimeters). Then imagine a constricted section in the middle of the pipe with a diameter of only 2 inches (5 centimeters). Bernoullis principle says that water flowing through the pipe has to speed up in the constricted portion of the pipe. If water flowed at the same rate in the constricted portion of the pipe, less water would get through. The second half of the pipe would not be full. ...

BACKGROUND: The analysis of perinatal outcomes often involves datasets with some multiple births. These are datasets mostly formed of independent observations and a limited number of clusters of size two (twins) and maybe of size three or more. This non-independence needs to be accounted for in the statistical analysis. Using simulated data based on a dataset of preterm infants we have previously investigated the performance of several approaches to the analysis of continuous outcomes in the presence of some clusters of size two. Mixed models have been developed for binomial outcomes but very little is known about their reliability when only a limited number of small clusters are present.. METHODS: Using simulated data based on a dataset of preterm infants we investigated the performance of several approaches to the analysis of binomial outcomes in the presence of some clusters of size two. Logistic models, several methods of estimation for the logistic random intercept models and generalised ...

It seems like an oddly worded question. By it overbooks a 240 seat airplane by 5%, does that mean that 5% of the people booked are extras (i.e. 95% of the people booked = 240 people --, 252.63 people are booked) or that it books an extra 5% on top of the 240 people (i.e. 240 + 5% of 240 = the number of people booked = 252). Now, if its the first one, then the answer is clearly zero. 5% of the people booked are extra, and 5% of the people do not show up, so chances are the people that have to be bumped off a flight is zero, so they have to payout $0. However, the problem with the first one is that it doesnt make sense to say they book 252.63 people. However, perhaps they mean that in total, of all their, say, 1000000 customers, 5% are overbooked, i.e. not 5% of 252.63, but 5% in general. If we go with the second option, then the answer is still zero. If they overbook by 5% as per the second definition, they book 252 people. 5% of them dont show, thats 12.6 people, so in total only 239.4 ...

  • Play media The bean machine, also known as the quincunx or Galton board, is a device invented by Sir Francis Galton to demonstrate the central limit theorem, in particular that the normal distribution is approximate to the binomial distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to the central limit theorem (more specifically, the de Moivre-Laplace theorem), the binomial distribution approximates the normal distribution provided that n, the number of rows of pins in the machine, is large. (wikipedia.org)
  • For these hypothesis tests, as the sample size, n, increases, the sampling distribution of the test statistic approaches the normal distribution (central limit theorem). (wikipedia.org)
  • In probability theory, the de Moivre-Laplace theorem, which is a special case of the central limit theorem, states that the normal distribution may be used as an approximation to the binomial distribution under certain conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effectively, the exact binomial test evaluates the imbalance in the discordants b and c. (wikipedia.org)
  • The traditional advice has been to use the exact binomial test when b + c (wikipedia.org)
  • However, simulations have shown both the exact binomial test and the McNemar test with continuity correction to be overly conservative. (wikipedia.org)
  • Beta-binomial analysis is useful for describing aggregated patterns of plant disease (Hughes and Madden 1993). (apsnet.org)
  • Our approach will closely follow the description of Hughes and Madden (1993) who illustrated the use of the beta-binomial distribution for handling overdispersed disease incidence data obtained from quadrats. (apsnet.org)
  • Because the goal is to illustrate optimization of a likelihood function for plant pathology, some of the more technical details of using the beta-binomial distribution as specified in the analyses of Hughes and Madden (1993) will not be covered and the reader is recommended to consult that reference. (apsnet.org)
  • The number of balls taken of a particular color follows the binomial distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is frequently used in Bayesian statistics, empirical Bayes methods and classical statistics to capture overdispersion in binomial type distributed data. (wikipedia.org)
  • For decision-making, Bayesian statisticians might use a Bayes factor combined with a prior distribution and a loss function associated with making the wrong choice. (wikipedia.org)
