ashina: Ashina's crossover trial

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

The ashina data frame has 16 rows and 3 columns. It contains data from a crossover trial for the effect of an NO synthase inhibitor on headaches. Visual analog scale recordings of pain levels were made at baseline and at five time points after infusion of the drug or placebo. A score was calculated as the sum of the differences from baseline. Data were recorded during two sessions for each patient. Six patients were given treatment on the first occasion and the placebo on the second. Ten patients had placebo first and then treatment. The order of treatment and the placebo was randomized.
