LAB 2 WRITE-UP
A T-Test was run on the experiment with rats because only two groups were compared: the group which took a 0mg pill and the group which took a 10mg pill. The p-value for this test was greater than 0.05, so there is no statistical significance.
In the experiment, it is clear that a dosage of lipopolysaccharide has a significant effect on levels of inflammotin in the elderly. There is no statistical significance in the study with the rats, and the p-value for the test is far exceeding 0.05. However, in the human study, all tests had significance. Since the effect is only seen in humans, it is possible that lipopolysaccharide does not increase levels of inflammotin in rats.
