and

μ

μ

= probability of partial remission
μ

= probability of complete remission
(b) Looking at the reported coeFcients, I estimate that the odds of progressive disease (logit
= 0.79) or no change (logit = 0.18) vs. complete remission is larger for those who recieved
alternating treatment. However, the odds of partial remission vs. complete remission
(logit = 0.10) is smaller for those recieving alternating treatment.
Although not always necessary, it is generally a good idea to examine the other relation
ships as well:
log( ˆ
μ

ˆ
μ

Looking at these comparisons, I estimate that the odds of progressive disease (logit =
0.90) or no change (logit = 0.28) vs. partial remission is greater for those receiving
alternating treatment. ±inally, the odds of progressive disease vs. no change is also
greater for those receiving alternating treatment (logit = 0.61).
Thus, no matter how you look at it, alternating treatment seems to decrease the odds of
a successful outcome.

Since the pvalue is so small, I conclude that the type of treatment does have a signiFcant
association with the response.
