When clinical studies require enrolled patients to have abnormal assays, the natural tendency of repeat measurements to regress toward the mean can lead to a false assessment of effectiveness of therapy. We propose a method to more accurately estimate the true effect of therapy by adjusting for a component of improvement that can be attributed to regression effect. The model we use allows for a combination of additive and/or multiplicative effects of the therapy.
