A mixture model is described for dose-response studies where measurements on a continuous variable suggest that some animals are not affected by treatment. The model combines a logistic regression on dose for the probability an animal will "respond" to treatment with a linear regression on dose for the mean of the responders. Maximum likelihood estimation via the EM algorithm is described and likelihood ratio tests are used to distinguish between the full model and meaningful reduced-parameter… CONTINUE READING
