LAB 2 WRITE-UP
This was a human based study to see if various doses of LPS (0 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 15 mg) increase the levels of inflammotin in the elderly at a retirement center.
This was a rat based study to see if the LPS treatment increased Inflammotin protein levels
Based on the p-value for experiment 1, there is a statistically significant difference among the different doses of LPS. Upon further analysis between all groups, each comparison showed significance when comparing the t-test values to the corrected p-value. In this study of inflammotin and the elderly, we found that the dose of LPS does make a difference in the amount of inflammotin in elderly. However, in experiment 2, there was no significant difference between the doses of LPS. The dose of LPS does not make a significant difference in the amount of inflammotin.
