Independent and Dependent Variables
Independent variable: LPS (lipopolysaccharide)
Within designated age range, subjects should also be in 'good health'. Good health meaning no visible sickness- especially cold or fever, cognitive awareness, minimal number of comorbidities (diabetes,PAD, CAD, etc.).
Sources of Error and Bias
Certain diseases that were grounds to rule out a subject are more prevalent in certain ethnic or gender groups. Because of this, the subject pool may be unnecessarily uniform and not properly represent the target demographic. Also, the designated age range has the possibility of being too wide because subjects very close in age could be grouped together accidentally. This grouping could skew results because subjects very close in age have similar health predispositions. Of course, human error while carrying out procedure is always a factor in experiments.
