The F value of pull-out specimens with plain rebar was 21.0, greater than the corresponding [F.sub.1-[alpha]] = (1, n - 2) = 7.04 at a significance level of [alpha] = 0.01; hence the regression effect was significant.
In non-clinical studies, MORAb-202 demonstrated high target selectivity for FRA-positive cancer cells, strong anticancer activity (50% Inhibitory Concentration (IC50) against FRA-positive cells IC50 = 0.001-23nM, FRA-negative cells IC50 > 100nM), a clear bystander effect in the co-culture of positive and negative FRA-positive cells, long half-life in blood (111-178 hours), and a long-lasting antitumor effect with only a single dose (In mouse models inoculated with triple-negative breast cancer cells and dosed with 5mg/kg, a 60-day tumor regression effect and complete response in 4 out of 8 mice was observed).
Therefore, a second reference group was used to help estimate the regression effect in the intervention and first comparison groups.
As shown in Figure 1B, the form of the bias is a classic manifestation of regression to the mean: Regression effects increase with decreasing serial correlation in the outcome and increasing baseline level differences between the treatment and control groups.
Table 4 summarises the results of the structural time series estimation, in which double-log model specification is used for regression effects. The standard goodness-of-fit statistics, the coefficient of determination and the standard error of regression, indicate the fit is pretty good.
Statistically, the paradox of high aptitude being associated both with high accomplishment and large regression effects merely restates what it means for two variables to be imperfectly correlated.
Table 9 shows results of logistic regression effects of predictors on making transition from employment to unemployment.
Regression effects were usually reported, but the inclusion of corrected effects was less frequent.
Regression effects were first studied by Sir Francis Galton in the 19th century.(8) Galton tried to predict certain behavioral and biological variables from other variables.

For example, the regression effects might be implemented to improve the way payments are targeted for particular causes but could be phased in over a longer period of time to avoid large, sudden impacts on particular hospitals.
