Question

A study examined the effect of garlic on blood cholesterol
levels. A total of 192 subjects with starting LDL (“bad
cholesterol”) levels between 130 and 190 mg/dl were randomly
assigned to one of four treatments for six months: raw garlic eaten
daily, a powdered garlic supplement taken daily (Garlicin brand),
an aged-garlic extract taken daily (Kyolic brand), or a placebo
pill taken daily. The study found no significant or clinical
differences in blood cholesterol levels between the four groups at
the end of the study.

This study used the principle of

a.blinding.

b.blocking.

c.randomization.

Answer #1

Here we assign A total of 192 subjects with starting LDL (“bad cholesterol”) levels between 130 and 190 mg/dl were randomly assigned to one of four treatments for six months: raw garlic eaten daily, a powdered garlic supplement taken daily (Garlicin brand), an aged-garlic extract taken daily (Kyolic brand), or a placebo pill taken daily.

We are assigning randomly and checking the effect.

Hence we can say that -

This study used the principle of **c.
Randomization.**

A recent study on the effect of raw garlic on plasma lipid
concentration in adults with moderate hypercholesterolemia was
conducted using 49 randomly selected subjects treated with raw
garlic and 48 randomly selected subjects with a placebo.
The 49 subjects treated with raw
garlic had LDL cholesterol measurements with a mean of 151 and a
standard deviation of 15, while 48 subjects given placebos had LDL
cholesterol measurements with a mean of 149 and a standard
deviation of 14.

A study examined the change in blood LDL cholesterol level in
millimoles per liter (mmol/L) as a function of baseline LDL when
subjects took either a placebo or the drug Pravastatin for two
years. One model of the results shows two parallel lines and gives
a multiple linear regression model μy=−1.875+0.4375x1+1.4x2 , where
x1 represents baseline cholesterol level and x2 is an indicator
variable for treatment that takes the value of 0 for the placebo
group and 1 for the...

If you divide your subjects into 2 groups and measure their
blood cholesterol levels before and after treatment with a
saskatoon berry extract or placebo, explain what statistical test
you would use to analyze your data.

In one study on the effect of Dyazide on blood pressure level,
25 subjects were randomly chosen to receive Dyazide and 25 were
chosen to receive a placebo. These subjects were later examined to
check for differences in their blood pressure levels. In a second
study, 200 subjects who reported taking Dyazide for a long period
of time had their blood pressure levels compared with those of 200
people who had never taken Dyazide. Which of the following
statements is...

High levels of cholesterol in the blood are associated with
higher risk of heart attacks. Will using a drug to lower blood
cholesterol reduce heart attacks? The Helsinki Heart Study looked
at this question. Middle-aged men were assigned at random to one of
two treatments: 2051 men took the drug gemfibrozil to reduce their
blood cholesterol levels, and a control group of 2030 men took a
placebo. During the next five years, 65 men in the gemfibrozil
group and 84...

In a recently released report, the total blood cholesterol
levels for adult Americans is an average of 191 mg/dL with a
standard deviation of 11.8 mg/dL.

reading of less
than 190
mg/dL.
14. Find the percentage of the population with a cholesterol
reading of more

mg/dL.
15. Find the percentage of the population with a cholesterol
reading between
185 and 195 mg/dL.
16. Find the percentage...

1. in a test of the effectiveness of garlic for
loweringcholesterol, 45 subjects were treated with garlic in a
processed tablet form. Cholesterol levels were measured before and
after the treatment. The changes (before-after) in their levels of
LDL cholesterol (in mg/dL) have a mean of 5.1 and a standard
deviation of 15.7. Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate of
the mean net change in LDL cholesterol after the garlic treatment.
What does the confidence interval suggest about the effectiveness...
