H 524: Problem Set 7 Solutions Problem 1 A clinical trial designed to evaluate whether or not patients with coronary artery disease respond to treatments heparin and enoxaparin. Estimate RD = p H - p E RR = p H / p E OR = p H /(1- p H ) ÷ / p E / (1-p E ) where p H denotes the probability of not responding to heparin and p E denotes the probability of not responding to enoxaparin.

b) The confidence intervals for all 3 measures of association lead us to reject the null hypothesis that the two treatments have the same success probability. The p-value of 0.019 supports this conclusion. The probability of not responding is higher under heparin; the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
