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.
This report can be accessed by clicking the down option present in various JMP Clinical reports.
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 report 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 sections. 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:
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.
The following sections are generated by this report:
Down Buttons
Manage Display Templates : Click to open the Manage Display Templates window. This window enables you to specify domain elements and colors along with other saved attributes such as display mode and frame sizes of the subject profile graphs and tables.
Manage Data Templates : Click to open the Manage Data Templates window.
Click to generate a standardized pdf - or rtf -formatted report containing the plots and charts of selected sections.
Click the Options arrow to reopen the completed report dialog used to generate this output.
Click the gray border to the left of the Options tab to open a dynamic report navigator that lists all of the reports in the review. Refer to Report Navigator for more information.
The General tab contains the following elements:
One Demographics table.
This is a simple table of the basic demographics for the currently selected subjects.
Note : The study must have a defined reference start date ( RFSTDTC ). If this variable is blank, dates in the Demographics table will be empty and a warning is displayed, as shown below.
One Subject Profile .
This is the principal display. Time 1 is displayed along the x -axis and data values from available domains are grouped along the y -axis. When duration information is available, points are joined with a horizontal line. The color and shape of points is domain dependent and is described in the Legend pane in the lower right corner.
One Medical History pane.
This pane shows the medical history of the currently selected subjects, with values on the y -axis and time on the x -axis. The time scale on the x -axis is now in years and extends before the beginning of the study.
Note : If both age ( AGE ) and birthdate ( BRTHDTC ) are unavailable, or if the start date of an event ( MHSTDTC ) is unavailable, then the age of medical history ( AGEMH ) is displayed as 0 .
One Legend .
This pane describes the colors and symbols used in the primary display.
The top panel (shown below) denotes symbols and colors used for adverse events .
Blue, green, or red bars indicate that the events are mild, moderate, or severe, respectively, as specified by the values in the SDTM variable aesev . When you specify aetoxgr instead of aesev in your AE or ADAE domain, the color scale has five levels instead of three. The asterisk ( ) and filled-circle ( ) indicate whether the condition is serious or not serious, respectively, as specified by the values in the variable aeser .
Note : Serious conditions are generally, but not necessarily, severe.
The middle panel (shown below) denotes line formats and symbols used for dates and times of different events and interventions.
Events or interventions with a defined range are indicated by a solid line spanning the ranges. Events or interventions with unknown start or end dates are indicated by a dashed line. Flagged events are indicated by left (prior) or right (ongoing) arrows. Conflicts are indicated by and question mark 2 . Start and End dates are denoted by a filled-circle ( ).
The bottom panel (shown below) denotes symbols used for numeric findings.
Findings that exceed the specified maximum reference value (also defined as the upper limit of normal or ULN ) are indicated by an upward arrow ( ). Findings that fall below the specified minimum reference value (also defined as the lower limit of normal or LLN ) are indicated by a downward arrow ( ). Findings between the ULN and LLN are indicated by a filled-circle ( ). The color of the filled-circle symbol indicates where the value falls within the distribution observed for the study population , as indicated by the color scale located on the right side of the primary display (for example, ). The ends of the color scale are the 10 th and 90 th percentiles of all subjects in the study.
Note : The color scales are typically different for each numeric finding.
If no reference values are specified, the normal range is considered to be the median value over all subjects +/- 1.5 x the interquartile range ( IQR ).. Findings falling within that range are considered normal and are indicated by a filled-circle ( ). Findings falling outside of that range are considered outliers and are indicated by an asterisk ( ). As before, the color of the symbols indicates where the value falls within the distribution observed for the study population.
The Tables tab is shown below:
The Tables tab lists and summarizes subject-level for all profiled subjects in tabular form.
The Demographics tab contains the following elements:
Distributions of Demographic Variables.
These show basic Distribution plots and statistics for the demographic variables for all subjects profiled in the current view.
One Data Filter .
This enables you to filter subjects further and focus on specific subsets.

When calculating time, he start day for a record is used as the anchor point from which other elements of that row a drawn. The start day is computed from xxSTDY , xxSTDC , xxDY , xxRFSTDC , and/or xxDTC , depending on the domain. When the start day is missing and the end day is not, the start day is set equal to the end day minus one. If both are missing, the start day is set equal to 0.

When processing the flag variables xxSTRF and xxENRF , the patient profiler checks for the following keywords: "NOT RECOVERED/NOT RESOLVED", "NOT RECOVERED/RESOLVED", "NOT RECOVERED", "NOT RESOLVED", "RECOVERING/RESOLVING", "RECOVERING", "RESOLVING", "CONTINUING", "ONGOING". If one of these keywords is specified and also a corresponding start or end date is specified, the profile will display a "?" to represent a data conflict.
