Question

A researcher is creating a new treatment protocol for
Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), a form of preleukemia.

Following the old treatment protocol, 32% of patients with MDS will
develop leukemia within 5 years of MDS diagnosis. He believes his
new treatment protocol will lead to fewer MDS patients developing
leukemia. He takes a random sample of 100 individuals on his new
treatment protocol. Of these 100 individuals, 27 develop leukemia
within 5 years of MDS diagnosis.

**Create a 99% confidence interval for the true proportion
of all MDS patients on this treatment who will develop leukemia
within 5 years of MDS diagnosis.**

1. What is the 99% confidence interval?

2. What is the correct interpretation of the confidence interval from question 1?

3. Are the assumptions met? Explain.

Conduct a hypothesis test at the 0.10 significance level to test this claim.

4. What are the hypotheses?

5. What is the significance level? A. 0.01

B. 0.04 C. 0.05 D. 0.10

6. What is the value of the test statistic?

7. What is the p-value?

8. What is the correct decision?

A. Reject the Null Hypothesis

B. Fail to Reject the Null Hypothesis C. Accept the Null
Hypothesis

D. Accept the Alternative Hypothesis

9. What is the appropriate conclusion/interpretation?

10.Are the assumptions met? Explain.

Use the following information for questions 11-20: The average cholesterol level in the general US population is 189 mg/dL. A researcher wants to see if the average cholesterol for men in the US is different from 189 mg/dL. She takes a sample of 81 American males and finds a sample mean of 194 mg/dL and a sample standard deviation of 10.4.

Create a 99.8% confidence interval for the true average cholesterol level of the general US male population.

11.What is the 99.8% confidence interval?

12.What is the correct interpretation of the confidence interval from question 11?

13.Are the assumptions met? Explain.

Conduct a hypothesis test at the 0.01 significance level to test the researcher’s question.

14.What are the hypotheses?

15.What is the significance level? A. 0.01

B. 0.04 C. 0.05 D. 0.10

16.What is the value of the test statistic?

17.What is the p-value?

18.What is the correct decision?

A. Reject the Null Hypothesis

B. Fail to Reject the Null Hypothesis

C. Accept the Null Hypothesis

D. Accept the Alternative Hypothesis

19.What is the appropriate conclusion/interpretation?

20.Are the assumptions met? Explain.

PLEASE ELABORATE ON THE ASSUMPTION AND P-VALUE QUESTIONS.

Answer #1

The average cholesterol level in the general US
population is 189 mg/dL. A researcher wants to see if the average
cholesterol for men in the US is different from 189 mg/dL. She
takes a sample of 81 American males and finds a sample mean of 194
mg/dL and a sample standard deviation of 10.4
What is the 90% confidence interval? What is the correct
interpretation of the confidence interval from question 11? Are the
assumptions met? Explain.

A new drug to lower total cholesterol is being tested. A study
is designed to evaluate the efficacy of the drug. Sixteen patients
agree to participate in the study and each is asked to take the new
drug for 4 weeks. Before starting the treatment, each patient's
total cholesterol level is measured. After taking the drug for 4
weeks, each patient's total cholesterol level is measured again.
The 99% confidence interval for the change in total cholesterol
(After less Before)...

In a test of the effectiveness of garlic for lowering
cholesterol, 64 subjects were treated with raw garlic. Cholesterol
levels were measured before and after the treatment. The changes
(before minus after) in their levels of LDL cholesterol (in
mg/dL) have a mean of 0.3 and a standard deviation of 24.6 Use a
0.10 significance level to test the claim that with garlic
treatment, the mean change in LDL cholesterol is greater than
0.

A serum cholesterol level above 250 mg/dl of blood is a risk
factor for cardiovascular disease in humans. At a
medical center in St. Louis, a study to test the effectiveness of
new cholesterol-lowering drug was conducted. One hundred
people with cholesterol levels between 250 mg/dl and 300 mg/dl were
available for this study. Fifty people were assigned at
random to each of two treatment groups. One group
received the standard cholesterol-lowering medication and the other
group received the new drug. After taking the drug...

We want to compare the serum cholesterol levels of recent
immigrants with the levels found in the general population of the
US. It is known that the mean cholesterol level for a certain age
group in the US is 189 mg/dL. A random sample of 100 recent
immigrants of the same age group finds a mean of 180 mg/dL. Assume
that a population standard deviation is 49. Test at the 5% level to
see if the level for recent immigrants...

We want to compare the serum cholesterol levels of recent
immigrants with the levels found in the general population of the
US. It is known that the mean cholesterol level for a certain age
group in the US is 190 mg/dL. A random sample of 100 recent
immigrants of the same age group finds a mean of 181.52 mg/dL.
Assume that a population standard deviation is 48.23. Test at the
5% level to see if the level for recent immigrants...

Suppose a researcher is interested in a new treatment plan for
CD4 cell count in immune-compromised patients with HIV. In order to
investigate the new drug, the researcher gathers a group of 55
individuals with a mean CD4 count of 300 cells/mm3 after treatment
with a standard deviation of 25.1. Test the hypothesis that the
mean CD4 count goal is not 292 cells/mm3. Perform a two-way
directional test, complete the 5 step process and calculate the
appropriate confidence interval. (Use...

The effectiveness of a new treatment was tested against the
existing procedure for Alzheimer's patients. A study randomized 13
patients to the new treatment and 18 patients to the existing.
After 3 years, all patients relapsed, and Alzheimer's symptoms
re-occurred. The average time-to-relapse was X_bar1=18.6 months
under the new treatment and X_bar_2=10.1 months under the existing
procedure, with observed standard deviation s_1=3 and s_2=3.2.
To test the difference between the mean relapse time of the new
treatment and the standard...

A new drug to treat high cholesterol is being tested by
pharmaceutical company. The cholesterol levels for 18 patients were
recorded before administering the drug and after. The average
difference in cholesterol levels (after - before) was 4.19 mg/dL
with a standard deviation of 8.055 mg/dL. Using this information,
the calculated 90% confidence paired-t interval is (0.887, 7.493).
Which of the following is the best interpretation of this
interval?
Question 8 options:
1)
The proportion of all patients that had...

In a test of the effectiveness of garlic for lowering
cholesterol, 36 subjects were treated with raw garlic. Cholesterol
levels were measured before and after the treatment. The changes
(before minus after) in their levels of LDL cholesterol (in mg/dL)
have a mean of 0.7 and a standard deviation of 2.37. Use a 0.10
significance level to test the claim that with garlic treatment,
the mean change in LDL cholesterol is greater than 0.
