    Nonlinear regression of pharmacokinetic model using Matlab

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    All I can tell you is that we are supposed to use a multidimensional extension of Taylor's theorem to approx. the variation of f(x) in the neighborhood of an initial guess, x^(k) where f'(x^(k)) is the Jacobian system of equations.

    I have the equation J^k * deltax^k = -f(x^k) for the system of linear equations

    (See attached file for full problem description with proper symbols)

    ---
    Placental transport of AZT to determine the pharmacokinetic parameters, to assess placental toxicity and to assess distribution of AZT in exposed placental tissues. Using the data given below:

    1.) Model maternal and fetal compartments separately as a first order drug absorption and elimination problem.
    Model equation :

    C(t, I0 ,Ka,Kte) = I0 * (Ka/(Ka-Kte))*(e-Kte(t) - e-Ka(t))

    2.) Use Matlab to solve for I0 ,Ka,Kte using nonlinear regression:
    a.) first using Matlab "fminsearch"
    b.) then using Newton's multivariate method.

    Regression equation:
    SSE(I0 ,Ka,Kte) = Σ( Ci - c(t, I0 ,Ka,Kte))2
    Sum of the squares of the error between model and data that is to be minimized

    3.) Plot data along with best-fit model
