David Airey was asking about the ability of Stata to implement nonlinear curve fitting for selected nonlinear functions of interest to pharmacologists. I had posted that Stata has -nl- and -ml- that would be helpful in this regard, and that -ml- has certain advantages, for example, the -cluster()- option. He replied, -------------------------begin excerpt from post--------------------------------- Thanks for this information. I'll likely give one of these equations a whirl to compare results. Others in the lab uses Motulsky's GraphPad prism because it's easy to use and the documentation is well done if full of typos. Be nice to have extended capabilities present in Stata that are not present in Prism. From what I can tell, Prism 3.0 has several built in (and modifiable) classic equations, such as: 1. one site binding (hyperbola) Y = Bmax * X -------- Kd + X two site binding Y = Bmax1 * X Bmax2 * X --------- + --------- Kd1 + X Kd2 + X 2. sigmoidal dose-response (top - bottom) Y = bottom + -------------------- 1 + 10^(logEC50 - X) 3. sigmoidal dose-response (variable slope) (top - bottom) Y = bottom + ------------------------------ 1 + 10^(logEC50 - X)*hillslope 4. one site competition (top - bottom) Y = bottom + -------------------- 1 + 10^(X - logEC50) 5. two site competition fraction_1 1 - fraction_1 Y = bottom + (top - bottom) *( --------------------- + -------------------- ) 1 + 10^(X-logEC50_1) 1 + 10^(X-logEC50_2) and a few others: 6. boltzmann sigmoid 7. one phase exponential decay 8. two phase exponential decay 9. one phase exponential association 10. two phase exponential association 11. exponential growth 12. power series 13. polynomial equations -------------------------end excerpt from post---------------------------------- A couple of items from the list, for example, the exponential decay and association functions (Nos. 7 through 11), might already be programmed for -nl-; there is a suite of exponential functions for -nl- that ship with Stata. It looks as if all of the functions through Number 11 would be easy to implement with -nl- if they're not already available. The last two, I believe, are currently implemented or served in various ways in Stata, for example, in -boxcox-, -fracpoly-, -boxtid- and -bspline-. In case it helps to illustrate the use of -ml- for these kinds of problems, I've programmed the first two from the list (one-site and two-site Langmuir adsorption isotherms) and attached them below in a do-file. The illustrations below use artificial datasets for a problem set exercise in a biochemistry course taught by Richard Neubig at the University of Michigan. They can be found as the first two hits from Google searching using keywords, *neubig* and *550*. (The URLs are each too long to include either on a single line here.) If there is an interest in implementing nonlinear regression items from the list above using -ml-, good references for the exercise are: 1. help for -ml-, 2.

Sribney, _Maximum Likelihood Estimation in Stata_ (College Station, Texas: Stata Press, 1999), pp. 44-45 [note that there's a typographical error in the code shown on Page 45--a right parenthesis is missing in each case], and 3.
