Analysis & Inferential Statistics

Human Subject Study
A one-way ANOVA test was chosen to evaluate this study because the effect of one variable is being investigated among four groups. ANOVA test for human subjects
All comparisons between groups from this study were statistically significant because the p-value from the ANOVA test was less than 0.05, and each p-value from the subsequent t-tests were less than 0.0083, therefore making this experiment statistically significant.

Rat Subject Study
A t-test was chosen to evaluate this study since the effect of one variable among two different groups is being investigated. t-test for rats using pvalue

The results from the rat subject study are not statistically significant due to a p-value calculated to be greater than 0.05, as shown in the data above.


While the human subject study proved to be statistically significant, the rat subjects study did not. It seems to appear that the drug produces some effect on inflammation in humans, while it does not correlate with any effect in rats. This result could be due to a variety of factors including: the sample size was larger in the human study than the rat study, giving more data to be evaluated, there were more groups with varying dosages of the LPG drug tested in humans than tested in the rats, again giving more data to be evaluated.
