DualEndpointEmax-class: Dual endpoint model with emax function for dose-biomarker...

Description Details Slots Examples

Description

This class extends the DualEndpoint class. Here the dose-biomarker relationship f(x) is modelled by a parametric EMAX function:

Details

f(x) = E_{0} + \frac{(E_{max} - E_{0}) * (x/x^{*})}{ED_{50} + (x/x^{*})}

where x^{*} is a reference dose, E_{0} and E_{max} are the minimum and maximum levels for the biomarker and ED_{50} is the dose achieving half of the maximum effect 0.5 * E_{max}.

All parameters can currently be assigned uniform distributions or be fixed in advance.

Slots

E0

either a fixed number or the two uniform distribution parameters

Emax

either a fixed number or the two uniform distribution parameters

ED50

either a fixed number or the two uniform distribution parameters

refDoseEmax

the reference dose x^{*}
