I thought I’d throw this out there for a jump in my stats. 😉 That’s for you Lizzie.
So, the trial medication that I just started can interact with a certain virus that is in some people, with possible bad, horrible things, that would happen…
I have that virus.
So basically, there is a 0.4% chance that these would interact. Pretty good odds that they won’t. If they did interact though…I would have a 1 out of 3 chance that I would die. Let’s just say a painful death to make it interesting.
Three effects of the interaction:
- Worsening of disability on a minor scale.
- Worsening of disability on a major scale.
Current world population is 6,999,177,537 .
Using that figure, I had a 1 in 8,176,609, chance of even getting in this trial.
Now that I am in it, I have a 1 in 32,706, chance of having an interaction.
If I have an interaction, I have a 1 in 10,902, chance of dying.
Of course we all have a 1 in 5 chance of dying from heart disease, so looks like I’m beating the odds so far. 😉
