factor with levels,
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a genetically transmitted disease,
passed from a mother to her children. Affected female offspring usually suffer
no apparent symptoms, male offspring with the disease die at young age.
Although female carriers have no physical symptoms they tend to exhibit
elevated levels of certain serum enzymes or proteins.
The dystrophy dataset contains 209 observations of 75 female DMD carriers and 134 female DMD non-carrier. It includes 6 variables describing age of the female and the serum parameters serum marker creatine kinase (CK), serum marker hemopexin (H), serum marker pyruvate kinase (PK) and serum marker lactate dehydroginase (LD). The serum markers CK and H may be measured rather inexpensive from frozen serum, PK and LD requires fresh serum.
