d(K/ (1+exp(c-b*t)))/dt=k*exp(c-b*t)*b/sqr(1+exp(c-b*t)),so your fitting function become:
is the above correct? if yes, you may see the function is over-fit, that means the parameters will not be unique, one solution likes below:
Root of Mean Square Error (RMSE): 11257.9862380487
Sum of Squared Residual: 1647649303.76923
Correlation Coef. (R): 0.891727403408187
R-Square: 0.795177761989108
Adjusted R-Square: 0.726903682652144
Determination Coef. (DC): 0.795103266693536
F-Statistic: 7.64708134900884

Hi, Yadav, in your function "a*d/dt(k/1+exp(c-b*t))", what is "d/dt"? does "k/1" equal to "k"? Please describe clearly.

@ Alex Sha , Please send code . I need code so if i have to do similar kind of fitting , i can take the help from the code.
Thank you.

Hi, Yadav, I actually use a software package other than Matlab, named 1stOpt, it is much easy for using without guessing initial start-values, since it adopts global optimization algorithm. The code looks like below:
Parameter a,k,c,b,g;
ConstStr f=a*(k*exp(c-b*t(i))*b)/(1+exp(c-b*t(i)))^2;
Variable t,z[OutPut],y;
StartProgram [Basic];
Sub MainModel
Dim as integer i, j, n
Dim as double temd1, temd2
for i = 0 to DataLength - 1
n = t(i)
temd1 = 0
for j = 0 to n
temd1 = temd1 + f
temd2 = 0
for j = 0 to n
temd2 = temd2 + g*y(j)
z(i) = temd1 + temd2
End Sub
a much better result:
Root of Mean Square Error (RMSE): 9901.69220512954
Sum of Squared Residual: 1274565610.8266
Correlation Coef. (R): 0.918681151445272
R-Square: 0.84397505802081
Adjusted R-Square: 0.791966744027747
Determination Coef. (DC): 0.841498837497943
F-Statistic: 9.7840155772957
