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 Relief;New Medication;44;76;Placebo;21;99;Estimate 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 below;Lower Limit of;CI: ____0.41;Upper Limit of;CI: ___1.61;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 b;2.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 Healing;Treatment;0-25%;26-50%;51-75%;76-100%;New Compound;(n=125);15;37;32;41;Placebo (n=125);36;45;34;10;Is there a;difference in the extent of wound healing by treatment?
