Profile Subjects
Profiling subjects is a powerful way to view all of the data for one or more subjects, enabling you to view their entire history and determine potential causes for unexpected events or findings. Refer to the Profile Subjects process description for more information.
This process can be accessed in multiple ways:
Results windows of many JMP Clinical processes
Subject Utilities menu of the JMP Clinical Starter
Important: Before clicking Profile Subjects, you must select the subjects of interest by clicking in a graph or selecting rows in the corresponding table.
For example, run the DM Distribution process for the Nicardipine study and select subjects less than 20 years old from the Age distribution histogram. Clicking the Profile Subjects action button then generates the window shown below. Output is organized into panes and tabs. Each tab contains one or more plots, data panels, data filters, or other elements that facilitate your analysis.
The Profile Subjects window contains the following elements:
Panes
These panes contain options that enable you to customize the profiles that are generated. Click the triangle () next to each pane to expand that pane.
This pane enables you to select which subjects to profile. Hold the Ctrl key to select multiple subjects or the Shift key to select contiguous subjects among those listed. Shown below is a partial Profile display for three selected subjects.
Templates enable you to control display of specific domain elements and colors along with other attributes such as display mode and frame sizes. Click the triangle () to expand the pane.
A display template controls the attributes of the subject profile graphs and tables. It consists of specific domain elements and colors along with other saved attributes such as display mode and frame sizes.

Click Manage Display Templates to open the Manage Display Templates window.
To create a new template:
*
Select a template using the Current Display Template drop-down menu (circled above) and either select a template that is closest to the one that you want to create, or just work from the default None template.
*
Note: Each action automatically updates the current display.
*
When you are satisfied with the display, click Save, enter a template name, and then click OK to save the new template.
*
To delete one or more templates, click Delete, select the templates that you want to delete, and then click OK.
The Manage Display Templates window contains several tabs that enable you to configure the attributes of the Patient Profiler:
Axis tab: The controls on this tab enable you to adjust the vertical and horizontal space1 allocated to the primary subject profile view. Move the sliders (or enter values into the corresponding text fields) to suit your screen size and resolution. Right-click the sliders to change their range.
Y-Axis Values tab: These options enable you to control exactly what domain data are displayed in the displayed profiles on the General tab. Click on the triangle next to a domain (Medical History, for example) to expand it, and use the check boxes to remove or add items. Uncheck All and Check All buttons (circled) are available for removing or adding entire domains.
Domain Order, Labels, and Colors tab: These options enable you to control the organization and appearance of data in the profiles. Select a domain in the list and click Move Up or Move Down to change the position of the domain in the display. Click Change Labels and/or Change Colors to change how domain data are labeled and colored in the profiles
Findings tab: This pane contains options for specifying how numeric measurements are presented and to control the degree of detail shown for findings domains. Use the Numeric Measurement options to specify how numeric results are presented. Use the Display Mode options to control the degree of detail presented2. Determine which axis the time points are to be plotted on using the Arrange Time Points options. Toggle the visibility of numeric legends with the Show Numeric Legends check box.
Table Variables tab: These options enable you to control exactly what domain data are displayed in the Tables shown on the Tables tab. Click on the triangle next to a domain (Medical History, for example) to expand it, and use the check boxes to remove or add items. Uncheck All and Check All buttons (circled) are available for removing or adding entire domains.
*
Click Manage Data Templates to open the Manage Data Templates window.
A data template controls what domains are shown in subject profiles. It contains a list of included or excluded domains.
To create a new template:
*
Select a template using the Current Data Template drop-down menu (circled above) and either select a template that is closest to the one that you want to create, or just work from the default None template.
*
*
Build the domain list by clicking on selected available domains and clicking to add the domains to the Selected Domains list, as Shown above. Hold the Ctrl key to select multiple subjects or the Shift key to select contiguous subjects among those listed.
*
To save the template, click Save, enter a template name, and then click OK to save it. The template is saved and applied to the current profile.
*
To delete one or more templates, click Delete, select the templates that you want to delete, and then click OK.
Use this pane to select and view one or more of the underlying data tables for the profiles. Click the triangle () to expand the pane and reveal the data tables.
*
Click one of the buttons (Profile, in this example) to view the corresponding table. Points selected in any of the graphs appear as highlighted rows in the tables.
Tab Viewer
This pane provides you with a space to view individual tabs within the Results window. Use the tabs to access and view the output plots and associated data sets.
The following tabs are generated by this process:
General
Show New or Modified Records: Click Show New or Modified Records to display records that are new, modified, or non-unique only. After clicking this button, the button transforms into a Show All Records button. Click Show All Records to return to the original view.
Generate Report or Create Report (depending on version): Click Generate Report or Create Report to create a PDF or RTF version of the profiles. Several options are available after clicking the button, as shown below.
Create Narratives: Click Create Narratives to launch the AE Narrative process on the currently selected subjects. It automatically creates an English written description of the adverse events and related data for these subjects.
View Comments: Click View Comments to display all comments from the CO domain for the currently selected subjects.
Create Subject Filter: Click Create Subject Filter to create a filter that can be applied in subsequent analyses to reduce the analyzed subjects to only the ones currently selected.
Click Add Notes to take notes, and store them in a central location. Refer to Add Notes for more information.
Click View Notes to read user-generated notes. Refer to View Notes for more information.
Close All: Click Close All to close all graphics windows and underlying data sets associated with the output.

1
Use the Profile Frame Size controls to adjust the vertical and horizontal space allocated to the primary subject profile view. Use the Medical History Frame Size controls to adjust the vertical and horizontal space allocated to the primary subject profile view. Use the X Axis Range controls to adjust the x-axis of the display. Enter minimum and maximum values into the text fields.

2
Compressed: Saves vertical space by collapsing values that have been grouped into a single row. (You must create an XXgrp.sas7bdat for the grouping to occur.) In the example, note the groupings for labs such as POTASSIUM / SODIUM and ALT / AST. Note a slight shift in the x-axis time value is used for visual clarity of groupings. Includes mini color legends on the right hand side of the display. The scale of these legends changes for each value. Normal: Allocates one row for each value, using more vertical space but aligning all measurements exactly on the x-axis time scale. Includes mini color legends on the right hand side of the display. The scale of these legends changes for each value. Expanded: Creates spark line plots for each row, using even more vertical space, but is informative for clearly visualizing time trends.
