The possibility-probability relationship for bloodstream concentrations of physiologically active substances

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

If a possibility distribution and a probability distribution are describing values x of one and the same system or process x (t)t, can they relate to each other? Though in general the possibility and probability distributions might be not connected at all, we can assume that in some particular cases there is an association linked them.In the presented paper, we consider distributions of bloodstream concentrations of physiologically active substances and propose that the probability to observe a concentration x of a substance X can be produced from the possibility of the event X = x The proposed assumptions and resulted theoretical distributions are tested against the data obtained from various panel studies of the bloodstream concentrations of the different physiologically active substances in patients and healthy adults as well.
