LAB 2 WRITE-UP
To be statistically significant, the p-value must be less than 0.00833
This shows that a statistically significant difference exists between all dosages.
The data showed that increased dosages of LPS increased inflammotin in humans in exponentially increasing increments based on dosage. Lipopolysaccharide had no effect during the rodent trials. This data shows that a greater amount of dosages should have been tested on rats. The lack of responsiveness from the rats could have been taken as a sign of the ineffectiveness of the drug, and its benefits to humans could have been overlooked. This data shows that different medications and treatments can have different effects on different organisms, so in vitro testing is extremely important to ensure that medications that can treat humans are not dismissed because of their lack of effectiveness in rodent studies.
