targetCI {clinDR}R Documentation

Compute the dose with confidence interval exceeding a target change from placebo for each simulated example in an emaxsim object.

Description

Selects the lowest dose from a user-specified grid of doses with confidence interval exceeding a targetted change from placebo for each simulated data set in an emaxsim object.

Usage

targetCI (object,
	target,
	dgrid,
	clev=0.90,
	high= TRUE)

Arguments

object

An emaxsim object

target

Target improvement from placebo

dgrid

The lowest dose is found by a search over a user-specified grid of doses. If dgrid is a single value, it is interpreted as the number of equally-spaced doses to select from zero to the highest dose in the simulated design.

clev

One-sided confidence interval level.

high

When TRUE, lower bounds are computed and must be higher than the target. When FALSE, upper bounds must be less than the target.

Value

Returns a vector with the lowest dose meeting the criteria. If a simulated example does not have a qualifying dose, Inf is returned.

Note

If the grid is very large (>200), execution will slow as a large number of estimates and SEs are computed.
