We construct a diagnostic predictor for patient disease status based on a single data set of mass spectra of serum samples together with the binary case-control response. The model is logistic regression with Bernoulli log-likelihood augmented either by quadratic ridge or absolute $L_1$ penalties. For ridge penalization using the singular value decomposition we reduce the the number of variables for maximization to the rank of the design matrix. With log-likelihood loss, 10-fold cross-validatory choice is employed to specify the penalization hyperparameter. Predictive ability is judged on a set-aside subset of the data.
