Independent and Dependent Variables
Our independent variable is the dosage the inflammation inducing agent (lipopolysaccharide). The dependent variable is the increase in the inflammatory protein (inflammotin).
Subjects will be selected from a single area to control the participants' exposure to extraneous factors. The amount of inflammotin in their systems will vary from low to healthy, and randomized in the study to insure best results.
Sources of Error and Bias
Error can occur from the lack of accuracy of the machines measuring the inflammotin as well as in measuring the dosage being given to participants. The only method of control in this regard is to perform multiple tests so that outliers can be exposed.
