st: mice experiment, risk for a clinical manifestation
I am asked by my friend for suggestion about
analysis of mice data. However, since
I am totally lay in this field,
I have to ask for your suggestions...
Mice are inoculated by pathogens
to see the relationship between
their immune responses
and whether they manifest as a severe
complication of illness, named "Y".
However, many of the mice (say, 50%)
died from another irrelevant
form of illness "Z", before they
("Y" is relatively rare event, while
"Z" is more common)
My friend wants to see the contribution
of the age and immune responses
to the probability of "Y".
What study design is adequate?
