Prevelance and diagnostics of Urticaria and its therapeutic considerations

Urticaria is a heterogeneous skin disorder, which is characterized by development of wheals on the skin followed by Angioedema. This can appear in any part of the body. Symptoms of the Urticaria are:

  • raised skin,
  • itchy bumps,
  • blanching (when pressed the centre of red hive turns white).

Furthermore, scratching, exercise, emotional stress may worsen it.

Prevalence and diagnostics of food allergy and therapeutic considerations

Food allergy is an allergic reaction which is instigated with consumption of food which contains certain proteins, which can overreact with the immune system. Some of the major signs and symptoms of food allergy are:

  • red or itchy skin,
  • swelling,
  • teary eyes,
  • throat tightness,
  • trouble breathing (food allergies: reducing the risks, 2009).

Interpreting multivariate analysis with more than one dependent variable

In continuation to my previous article, the results of multivariate analysis with more than one dependent variable has been discussed in this article. Read more »

Multivariate analysis with more than on one dependent variable

The normal linear regression analysis and the ANOVA test are only able to take one dependent variable at a time. So one cannot measure the true effect if there are multiple dependent variables. In such cases multivariate analysis can be used. Thus, multivariate analysis (MANOVA) is done when the researcher needs to analyze the impact on more than one dependent variable. Read more »

Prevalence of asthma and its therapeutic considerations

Asthma is an anti-inflammatory chronic disease which affects the lungs. It mainly affects the airway linings which swells and the muscles encircling the airway tightening causes the airway narrow. This makes it difficult to get airway in and out of the lungs which causes the bronchial hyper responsiveness. The symptoms of the disease include:

  • coughing,
  • wheezing,
  • abdominal pain,
  • fatigue,
  • increase in respiratory pulse rates (Corn 2013).

Prevalence of allergic conjunctivitis and its therapeutic considerations

When the ocular surface is exposed to allergen, it results in the inflammation of conjunctiva (inside of eyelid covering the eyeball) and cornea leading to allergic conjunctivitis also known as pink eyes. The prevalence of the allergic conjunctivitis is found more in summer and spring (Høvding, 2008). The substance that triggers the conjunctivitis include:

Non linear regression analysis in STATA and its interpretation

In the previous article on Linear Regression using STATA, a simple linear regression model was used to test the hypothesis. However the linear regression will not be effective if the relation between the dependent and independent variable is non linear. The non linear regression is used more in the real life as compared to the linear regression. Read more »

Procedure and interpretation of linear regression analysis using STATA

Linear regression analysis is conducted to predict the dependent variable based on one or more independent variables. The basic regression equation is:
