It depends on which teo conditions you want to compare. Suppose you want
t9o compare MDM vs MDM-INF, then for each of the 4 individuals, you get
ratio of MDM/MDM-INF. YOu can input the resuting 4 ratios to  fucntion RP
with "one-class" option, meaning cl=c(0,0,0,0).
If you want to compare NONINF vs INF regardless of the T condition, I
would suggest you use fucniton RPadvancec to treat (MDM vs MDM-INF) as one
origin and (MDM-T vs MDM-T INF) as the second origin. What you should do
it is get 4 ratios of (MDM/MDM-INF), and 4 ratios of  (MDM-T/MDM-T INF),
pur them togeher as data. Let cl=rep(0,8), origin=c(rep(1,4),rep(2,4))

Let me know if this is not clear.
