**Question**

Question;1. A clinical trial is conducted comparing a new pain medication for arthritis. Participants are randomly assigned to receive the new medication or a placebo. The outcome is pain relief within 30 minutes. The data are shown below.Pain Relief No Pain ReliefNew Medication 44 76Placebo 21 99Estimate the risk difference in pain relief between treatments=Estimate the relative risk in pain relief between treatments=Estimate the odds ratio in pain relief between treatments=The upper and lower limits of the are shown belowLower Limit of CI: _______Upper Limit of CI: ________Based on the Confidence Interval values which of the following are true?A. One can be 95% confident that the true value will be greater than the upper limit.B. One can be 95% confident that the true value will be greater than the lower limit.C. One can be 95% confident that the true value will between the upper and lower limit.D. a and b2. The following data were collected in a clinical trial evaluating a new compound designed to improve wound healing in trauma patients. The new compound is compared against a placebo. After treatment for 5 days with the new compound or placebo the extent of wound healing is measured and the data are shown below.Percent Wound HealingTreatment 0-25% 26-50% 51-75% 76-100%New Compound (n=125) 15 37 32 41Placebo (n=125) 36 45 34 10Is there a difference in the extent of wound healing by treatment?
