The thyroid parafollicular cell is an endocrine cell derived from the neural crest that stores 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT). In common with serotonergic neurons, but in contrast to 5-HT-storing cells that are not neurectodermal derivatives, parafollicular cells also contain a specific 5-HT binding protein. Despite this similarity to serotonergic neurons,(More)
We identify three properties of the standard oncology Phase I trial design or 3 + 3 design. We show that the standard design implicitly uses isotonic regression to estimate a maximum tolerated dose. We next illustrate the relationship between the standard design and a Bayesian design proposed by Ji et al. (2007). A slight modification to this Bayesian(More)
