LAB 2 WRITE-UP
The results indicated that the inflammotin protein increased in both rats and humans as the dosage increased. However, the extent to which the dosage affected each test group varied. In the rats, the inflammotin levels increased from just above 10 pg/ml to approximately 11 pg/ml after changing the dosage from 5mg to 10mg. The effect of LPS on Humans was higher when compared to the rat scale since rats and humans have different body structures and do not function in the same way. There was a significant jump in the human body just by changing the dosage from 10mg to 15mg. The standard error is also higher in humans than rats because the rats can be contained, meaning they can be properly monitored. Whereas in humans, the standard error is greater because they could be doing other things such as: taking medication, vitamins or eating certain foods, introducing a far greater number of variables that could affect the experiment and skew the data.
