Once again, we can now pull together several separate concepts and create a new statistical procedure that you can use, this time called the confidence interval. If we draw a single sample of participants from a population and compute the mean for that sample, we are essentially estimating the mean for the population. We would like to know how close our estimate of that population mean really is. There is, unfortunately, no way of knowing the answer to that question from just a single sample, but we can approach the question in a different way. Instead of simply saying that the sample mean is our best estimate of the population mean, we can give people an idea of how good an estimate it is by computing a confidence interval. A confidence interval is a range of scores in which we can predict that the mean falls a given percentage of the time. For example, a 95% confidence interval is a range in which we expect the population mean to fall 95% of the time. How wide or narrow that interval of scores ...

To analyze the significant changes in our gene expression, p-values were calculated using an F-distribution. The first step to calculating this F-distribution is by calculating the sum of the squares of the null hypothesis, or SSH. The null hypothesis being that no genes experience any significant change in expression, therefore the population mean(μ) is 0. To calculate the SSH each genes log fold change was squared and summed over every flask i; i=1, 2, 3, 4, 5; and every time point j; j=t15, t30, t60, t90, and t120. SSH=ΣiΣj(Yij)2. The second step is to calculate the sum of squares of the alternate hypothesis, or SSF, the difference from the SSH being that the hypothesis states there is at least one significantly changed gene. This is represented by subtracting the population mean from the log fold change before squaring it. The population mean can be calculated by averaging the log fold change for each time point, these values were subtracted from each log fold change for each gene at ...

Recently I had more and more trouble to find topics for stats-orientated posts, fortunately a recent question from a reader gave me the idea for this one.

Who were the people of the Fertile Crescent who first domesticated wheat and sheep? Are their descendants still with us today? With recent advances in genetic population analysis, it may be possible to infer who these people were.As you may know, it is possible to collect genetic data from people and analyze it to roughly determine ancestry. With new population analysis tools such as ADMIXTURE, it is now possible to run autosomal DNA population ancestry simulations on large groups of people. These are more precise than the mt-DNA and y-DNA population analyses that have been popular for the last several years ...

A confidence interval estimate of μ is a range of values used to estimate a population parameter (interval estimates are normally used more than point estimates because it is very unlikely that the sample mean would match exactly with the population mean) The interval estimate uses a margin of error about the point estimate. For example if you have a point estimate of 12. 25 with a margin of error of 1.75, then the interval estimate would be (10.5 to 14). Before you find an interval estimate, you should first determine how confident you want to be that your interval estimate contains the population mean. ...

We sought to create an i.v. busulfan pharmacokinetic model that is generalizable to all patients, which was achieved by using this age- and size-dependent model (Table 2). Our main findings are: (i) this age- and size-dependent model accurately predicts i.v. busulfan concentrations over a wide range of body weights and ages (Fig. 1); (ii) i.v. busulfan clearance, scaled to size (i.e., NFM), reaches 95% of adult values at 2.5 postnatal years (Fig. 2); (iii) the model yields similar pharmacokinetic parameters compared with recently reported population pharmacokinetic models from smaller, exclusively pediatric populations; (iv) initial dosing predictions indicate that our age- and size-dependent model performs well compared with other methods, especially FDA dosing guidelines (Table 3).. This study has provided the first adequately powered test confirming theory-based allometry for clearance and volume parameters. The maturation of clearance in infants has been described for many drugs using a ...

Regression to the mean occurs whenever a nonrandom sample is selected from a population and two imperfectly correlated variables are measured, such as two consecutive blood pressure measurements. The less correlated the two variables, the larger the effect of regression to the mean. Also, the more extreme the value from the population mean, the more room there is to regress to the mean. It occurs whenever a group is selected with extreme values for one variable and another variable is then measured.1 2. Francis Galton documented the phenomenon in 1886. Galton measured the height of 930 adult children and their parents and calculated the average height of the parents. He noted that when the average height of the parents was greater than the mean of the population, the children tended to be shorter then the parents. Likewise, when the average height of the parents was shorter than the population mean, the children tended to be taller than their parents. Galton called this phenomenon regression ...

Andreas Groth1, Judi M ss2, Tine M ller3, Steen Ingwersen1. 1Biomodelling, 2Medical and Science, NovoSeven Key Projects, 3Biostatistics, Novo Nordisk, Bagsv rd, Denmark Objectives: NN1731 is a recombinant analogue of activated human coagulation factor FVII (FVIIa). Preclinical studies have indicated increased activity of NN1731 compared to native FVIIa in thrombin generation; a key step in the pathway to blood coagulation [1]. Thrombin generation from prothrombin may be measured by the appearance in the blood of prothrombin fragments 1 & 2 (F1+2). A first human dose (FHD) trial investigated the safety and the PK of NN1731, including measurements of F1+2 in plasma. It was attempted to investigate the feasibility of establishing a population PK/PD model of NN1731 pharmacologic effect to enable a future estimation of a relative potency of NN1731 compared to native recombinant FVIIa (rFVIIa, NovoSeven®).. Methods: The FHD trial was a dose escalation trial with 4 cohorts of patients (5, 10, 20 and ...

In admixed populations originating from different base breeds, such as Nordic Red dairy cattle, haplotypes of chromosomal segments instead of single SNP are expected to improve prediction accuracy in genomic evaluations, because linkage disequilibrium with QTL is likely to be more consistent for haplotypes than for SNP. The suggested evaluation approach consists of (i) pre-selecting a limited number of chromosomal segments based on a genome-wide QTL-scan with BayesB, (ii) estimating relative variances of haplotype markers with BayesA, and (iii) obtaining solutions for haplotype effects from mixed model equations including pedigree-based animal effects. For three production traits (milk, protein, fat) and fertility, the highest validation test reliabilities R2 were 0.48, 0.41, 0.42 and 0.33, respectively. For milk, protein and fertility, we observed an improvement over G-BLUP of 3, 1 and 3 %-units, respectively, whereas for fat, a decline of 1 %-unit.. ...

Background: Pipamperone is a frequently prescribed antipsychotic in children and adolescents in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. However, pediatric pharmacokinetics and the relationship with side effects and efficacy are unknown. Currently, divergent pediatric dosing recommendations exist. Objectives: The objective of this study was to describe the population pharmacokinetics of pipamperone in children and adolescents; to correlate measured and predicted pipamperone trough concentrations and predicted 24-h area under the curves with effectiveness, extrapyramidal symptoms, and sedation; and to propose dose recommendations based on simulations. Methods: Pipamperone concentrations were collected from Dutch pediatric patients in a prospective naturalistic trial (n = 8), and German pediatric patients in a therapeutic drug monitoring service (n = 22). A total of 70 pipamperone concentrations were used to develop a population pharmacokinetic model with non-linear mixed-effects modeling ...

Caveat-The published results are from a mixed-effect prediction model and the median followup was only 7.9 years and prediction is the operative word. Though the study is "longitudinal",numbers in their tables do not represent for example following the same people over a lifetime and noting the per decade change in oxygen uptake. Still their data suggest that the often quoted 5-10 % decrease per decade may be too optimistic and rates of changes likely accelerate with aging.The confidence intervals for each age range are quite large and you have to wonder what are the mechanisms responsible for such wide variation in loss of exercise capacity within an age range. If subendocardial fibrosis is the ( or a) culprit what are the factors that accelerate or retard that process ...

Critical care, like many healthcare areas, is under a dual assault from significantly increasing demographic and economic pressures. Intensive care unit (ICU) patients are highly variable in response to treatment, and increasingly aging populations mean ICUs are under increasing demand and their cohorts are increasingly ill. Equally, patient expectations are growing, while the economic ability to deliver care to all is declining. Better, more productive care is thus the big challenge. One means to that end is personalised care designed to manage the significant inter- and intra-patient variability that makes the ICU patient difficult. Thus, moving from current

N2 - Heterogeneity is a hallmark of stem cell populations, in part due to the molecular differences between cells undergoing self-renewal and those poised to differentiate. We examined phenotypic and molecular heterogeneity in pluripotent stem cell populations, using public gene expression data sets. A high degree of concordance was observed between global gene expression variability and the reported heterogeneity of different human pluripotent lines. Network analysis demonstrated that low-variability genes were the most highly connected, suggesting that these are the most stable elements of the gene regulatory network and are under the highest regulatory constraints. Known drivers of pluripotency were ...
