LAB 2 WRITE-UP
Based on the ANOVA and post-hoc t-test we are able to determine that all of the data from the human study is significant. We chose to do a t-test for the comparison of the data in the rat experiment because there were only 2 different experimental groups. ANOVA was used for the comparison of the human data because there were 4 different experimental groups each receiving a different amount of LPS. For the human test, a significant difference was achieved comparing each dosage level of the LPS drug. More specifically, the difference between the 10mg dosage and the 15mg dosage was the most significant. For the rat study, the T-Test gave a P-value of .02268, which means there was a significant difference in the data between the two LPS dosage samples in rats. On average, for the rats, the dosage of LPS increases inflammotin levels just like it does in humans, however with humans there is a more dramatic increase of inflammotin levels when changing the dosage of LPS.
