PKData object

Define roles of data set columns

PKData object will be removed in a future release. Use groupedData object instead.


The properties of the PKData object specify what each column in the data represents. The PKData object specifies which columns in the data set represent the following:

  • The grouping variable

  • The independent and dependent variables

  • The dose

  • The rate (only if infusion is the dosing type)

  • The covariates

This information is used by the fitting functions, sbionlmefit and sbionlinfit.

To create the PKData object specify:

pkDataObject = PKData(data);
Where data is the imported data set.

The PKData class is a subclass of the hgsetget class, which is a subclass of the handle class. For more information on the inherited methods, see hgsetget and handle.
