LAB 1 WRITE-UP

Independent and Dependent Variables

The Dependent Variable for the experiment is the amount of inflammatory protein produced.

The Independent Variable for the experiment is the dosage of inflammation inducing agent given to the subject.




Experimental Design

Eleven groups of subjects will be administered assigned dosages of Lipopolysaccharide by pill. After 3 hours, the subjects will undergo a blood test using ELISA. This test will determine the lowest dosage necessary to induce a Inflammotin producing response.

Groups
There will be eleven groups selected to receive doses of Lipopolysaccharide in 1 mg increments from 0 mg to 10 mg.


Number of subjects per group
There will be 10 subjects per group that best represent the criteria of the subjects in the section below.




Subject Selection

Subjects will be 65 years or older non-smoking individuals who don't have any underlying health conditions, and have refrained from taking anti-inflammatory medication for at least a week. These individuals will be randomly selected in order to properly represent the desired population.





Sources of Error and Bias

There would be some sources of error because there are so little people participating in the experiment for each representative group. This would produce a type of experimental biased. The lifestyle of the participants could also create errors in the data.
