subject

a factor with 234 levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, ..., 240

treat.f

a factor with 2 levels Placebo, Active

visual0

an integer vector with values ranging from 20 to 85

miss.pat

a factor with 8 levels ----, ---X, --X-, --XX, -XX-, ..., X-XX

time.f

a factor with 4 levels 4wks, 12wks, 24wks, 52wks

time

a numeric vector with values 4, 12, 24, 52

visual

an integer vector with values ranging from 3 to 85

tp
