Cluster Subjects within Study Sites
Running this process for Nicardipine using default settings generates the tabbed Results window shown below. Refer to the Cluster Subjects within Study Sites process description for more information. Output from the process is organized into tabs. Each tab contains one or more plots, data panels, data filters, or other elements that facilitate your analysis.
The Results window contains the following panes:
Tabs
This pane enables you to access and view the output plots and associated data sets on each tab. Use the drop-down menu to view the tab in the Tab Viewer pane, open the tab in a new window, or remove the tab and its contents from the Tab Viewer pane.
The following tabs are generated by this process:
Between-Subject Distance Summary: This tab presents box plots of the pairwise Euclidian Distances between subjects presented by site. The Euclidian Distance is calculated within study site. A Box Plot of the minimum pairwise distance taken from each site is presented.
Site XX Distance Matrix: A box plot of all pairwise distances is presented as well as a Heat Map and Hierarchical Clustering display (using the Average method) to determine whether there are sets of subjects that are very similar. There is one tab for each study site in the trial. However, only the site with the minimum pairwise distance is opened to minimize effects on performance. Other tabs can be opened using the Tabs menu.
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.
Drill Down Buttons
Drill down buttons provide you with an easy way to drill down into your data. The following drill down buttons are generated by this process:
Profile Subjects: Select subjects and click Profile Subjects to generate the patient profiles. See Profile Subjects for additional information.
Show Subjects: Select subjects and click Show Subjects to open the ADSL (or DM if ADSL is unavailable) of selected subjects.
Show Rows in Heat Map: Select points that represent pairs of subjects in the Box Plots and click Show Rows in Heat Map to highlight the subjects within the Heat Map and Dendrogram to see how they cluster together.
General
Click View Data to view the associated data table. Refer to View Data for more information.
Output includes one summary data set (named cswss_sum_XXX1, by default) containing one record per subject with selected data, one data set of all pairwise distances within the site (named cswss_alldist_XXX, by default), one data set containing minimum pairwise distances for each site (named cswss_mindist_XXX), by default), one data set per site containing pairwise distances (named cswss_p_Y_XXX, by default, where Y is site number or indexed 1 to the number of sites) and one data set per site containing the distance matrix of subjects within the covariate subgroup (named cswss_Y_XXX, by default, where Y is site number or indexed 1 to the number of sites).
