abstract

  • This paper exhibits a closed-form point and interval estimator of the log relative potency that incorporates prior information on the log relative potency in a symmetric parallel line bioassay. The point estimator turns out to be a weighted average of the usual estimator and the prior mean where the weights are determined by the prior variance.
