Independent and Dependent Variables
The independent variable is the LPS because it is the agent being used to change something.
The dependent variable is the Inflammotin because this is what is being measured to see if LPS is effective.
Group Description Regarding LPS Dosage
Number of subjects per group
There should be 10 subjects in each group.
Include: Different races, different social classes, different genders, different regions, and subjects must be under 200 lbs.
Exclude: The terminally ill or those with major diseases.
Sources of Error and Bias
Sources: Groups are not randomized correctly, the reliability of the subjects taking the medication, the possibility of outside factors affecting medications (e.g. foods, drinks), and conflict with other medications.
Solutions: A questionnaire for before and after, a brief pamphlet describing the medication and its interactions with other types of medications, and a check-in once a week to see progress and to determine if the schedule is being followed.
