## Evaluation of pharmacokinetic model designs for subcutaneous infusion of insulin aspart

In statistics , the generalized linear model GLM is a flexible generalization of ordinary linear regression that allows for response variables that have error distribution models other than a normal distribution. The GLM generalizes linear regression by allowing the linear model to be related to the response variable via a link function and by allowing the magnitude of the variance of each measurement to be a function of its predicted value.

Generalized linear models were formulated by John Nelder and Robert Wedderburn as a way of unifying various other statistical models, including linear regression , logistic regression and Poisson regression.

Maximum-likelihood estimation remains popular and is the default method on many statistical computing packages. Other approaches, including Bayesian approaches and least squares fits to variance stabilized responses, have been developed. Ordinary linear regression predicts the expected value of a given unknown quantity the response variable , a random variable as a linear combination of a set of observed values predictors.

This implies that a constant change in a predictor leads to a constant change in the response variable i. This is appropriate when the response variable can vary, to a good approximation, indefinitely in either direction, or more generally for any quantity that only varies by a relatively small amount compared to the variation in the predictive variables, e.

However, these assumptions are inappropriate for some types of response variables. For example, in cases where the response variable is expected to be always positive and varying over a wide range, constant input changes lead to geometrically i. As an example, suppose a linear prediction model learns from some data perhaps primarily drawn from large beaches that a 10 degree temperature decrease would lead to 1, fewer people visiting the beach.

This model is unlikely to generalize well over different sized beaches. Logically, a more realistic model would instead predict a constant rate of increased beach attendance e.

Such a model is termed an exponential-response model or log-linear model , since the logarithm of the response is predicted to vary linearly. Imagine, for example, a model that predicts the likelihood of a given person going to the beach as a function of temperature. A reasonable model might predict, for example, that a change in 10 degrees makes a person two times more or less likely to go to the beach. But what does "twice as likely" mean in terms of a probability?

It cannot literally mean to double the probability value e. Rather, it is the odds that are doubling: from odds, to odds, to odds, etc. Such a model is a log-odds or logistic model. Generalized linear models cover all these situations by allowing for response variables that have arbitrary distributions rather than simply normal distributions , and for an arbitrary function of the response variable the link function to vary linearly with the predictors rather than assuming that the response itself must vary linearly.

For example, the case above of predicted number of beach attendees would typically be modeled with a Poisson distribution and a log link, while the case of predicted probability of beach attendance would typically be modeled with a Bernoulli distribution or binomial distribution , depending on exactly how the problem is phrased and a log-odds or logit link function.

In a generalized linear model GLM , each outcome Y of the dependent variables is assumed to be generated from a particular distribution in an exponential family , a large class of probability distributions that includes the normal , binomial , Poisson and gamma distributions, among others. It is convenient if V follows from an exponential family of distributions, but it may simply be that the variance is a function of the predicted value. The GLM consists of three elements: [2].

Many common distributions are in this family, including the normal, exponential, gamma, Poisson, Bernoulli, and for fixed number of trials binomial, multinomial, and negative binomial. Under this scenario, the variance of the distribution can be shown to be [3].

The linear predictor is the quantity which incorporates the information about the independent variables into the model. It is related to the expected value of the data through the link function. The coefficients of the linear combination are represented as the matrix of independent variables X. The link function provides the relationship between the linear predictor and the mean of the distribution function. There are many commonly used link functions, and their choice is informed by several considerations.

There is always a well-defined canonical link function which is derived from the exponential of the response's density function. However, in some cases it makes sense to try to match the domain of the link function to the range of the distribution function's mean, or use a non-canonical link function for algorithmic purposes, for example Bayesian probit regression.

Following is a table of several exponential-family distributions in common use and the data they are typically used for, along with the canonical link functions and their inverses sometimes referred to as the mean function, as done here.

In the cases of the exponential and gamma distributions, the domain of the canonical link function is not the same as the permitted range of the mean. In particular, the linear predictor may be positive, which would give an impossible negative mean. When maximizing the likelihood, precautions must be taken to avoid this. An alternative is to use a noncanonical link function.

In the case of the Bernoulli, binomial, categorical and multinomial distributions, the support of the distributions is not the same type of data as the parameter being predicted. In all of these cases, the predicted parameter is one or more probabilities, i.

The resulting model is known as logistic regression or multinomial logistic regression in the case that K-way rather than binary values are being predicted. For the Bernoulli and binomial distributions, the parameter is a single probability, indicating the likelihood of occurrence of a single event.

The Bernoulli still satisfies the basic condition of the generalized linear model in that, even though a single outcome will always be either 0 or 1, the expected value will nonetheless be a real-valued probability, i. Similarly, in a binomial distribution, the expected value is Np , i. For categorical and multinomial distributions, the parameter to be predicted is a K -vector of probabilities, with the further restriction that all probabilities must add up to 1.

Each probability indicates the likelihood of occurrence of one of the K possible values. For the multinomial distribution, and for the vector form of the categorical distribution, the expected values of the elements of the vector can be related to the predicted probabilities similarly to the binomial and Bernoulli distributions. The maximum likelihood estimates can be found using an iteratively reweighted least squares algorithm or a Newton's method with updates of the form:. Note that if the canonical link function is used, then they are the same.

In general, the posterior distribution cannot be found in closed form and so must be approximated, usually using Laplace approximations or some type of Markov chain Monte Carlo method such as Gibbs sampling.

A possible point of confusion has to do with the distinction between generalized linear models and general linear models , two broad statistical models. Co-originator John Nelder has expressed regret over this terminology.

The general linear model may be viewed as a special case of the generalized linear model with identity link and responses normally distributed. As most exact results of interest are obtained only for the general linear model, the general linear model has undergone a somewhat longer historical development. Results for the generalized linear model with non-identity link are asymptotic tending to work well with large samples.

A simple, very important example of a generalized linear model also an example of a general linear model is linear regression. In linear regression, the use of the least-squares estimator is justified by the Gauss—Markov theorem , which does not assume that the distribution is normal. From the perspective of generalized linear models, however, it is useful to suppose that the distribution function is the normal distribution with constant variance and the link function is the identity, which is the canonical link if the variance is known.

For the normal distribution, the generalized linear model has a closed form expression for the maximum-likelihood estimates, which is convenient. Most other GLMs lack closed form estimates. The most typical link function is the canonical logit link:. GLMs with this setup are logistic regression models or logit models. Its link is. The reason for the use of the probit model is that a constant scaling of the input variable to a normal CDF which can be absorbed through equivalent scaling of all of the parameters yields a function that is practically identical to the logit function, but probit models are more tractable in some situations than logit models.

In a Bayesian setting in which normally distributed prior distributions are placed on the parameters, the relationship between the normal priors and the normal CDF link function means that a probit model can be computed using Gibbs sampling , while a logit model generally cannot. This link function is asymmetric and will often produce different results from the logit and probit link functions.

If p represents the proportion of observations with at least one event, its complement. A linear model requires the response variable to take values over the entire real line. This produces the "cloglog" transformation. However, the identity link can predict nonsense "probabilities" less than zero or greater than one. This can be avoided by using a transformation like cloglog, probit or logit or any inverse cumulative distribution function.

The variance function for " quasibinomial " data is:. When it is present, the model is called "quasibinomial", and the modified likelihood is called a quasi-likelihood , since it is not generally the likelihood corresponding to any real family of probability distributions. The binomial case may be easily extended to allow for a multinomial distribution as the response also, a Generalized Linear Model for counts, with a constrained total. There are two ways in which this is usually done:.

If the response variable is ordinal , then one may fit a model function of the form:. Different links g lead to ordinal regression models like proportional odds models or ordered probit models. If the response variable is a nominal measurement , or the data do not satisfy the assumptions of an ordered model, one may fit a model of the following form:. Different links g lead to multinomial logit or multinomial probit models. These are more general than the ordered response models, and more parameters are estimated.

Another example of generalized linear models includes Poisson regression which models count data using the Poisson distribution. The link is typically the logarithm, the canonical link. When it is not, the resulting quasi-likelihood model is often described as Poisson with overdispersion or quasi-Poisson. The standard GLM assumes that the observations are uncorrelated. Extensions have been developed to allow for correlation between observations, as occurs for example in longitudinal studies and clustered designs:.

The smoothing functions f i are estimated from the data. In general this requires a large number of data points and is computationally intensive. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Effective mathematical modelling of continuous subcutaneous infusion pharmacokinetics should aid understanding and control in insulin therapy. Thorough analysis of candidate model performance is important for selecting the appropriate models. Eight candidate models for insulin pharmacokinetics included a range of modelled behaviours, parameters and complexity. The models were compared using clinical data from subjects with type 1 diabetes with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion. Performance of the models was compared through several analyses: R 2 for goodness of fit; the Akaike Information Criterion; a bootstrap analysis for practical identifiability; a simulation exercise for predictability. Best prediction was achieved in a relatively simple model. Some model complexity was necessary to achieve good data fit but further complexity introduced practical non-identifiability and worsened prediction capability.

Implementations using R are provided throughout the text, although other software packages are also discussed. Numerous examples show how the problems are solved with R. After describing the necessary likelihood theory, the book covers both general and generalized linear models using the same likelihood-based methods. The authors then explore random effects and mixed effects in a Gaussian context. They also introduce non-Gaussian hierarchical models that are members of the exponential family of distributions. Each chapter contains examples and guidelines for solving the problems via R.
