"Resuscitation Time Bias"-a Unique Challenge for Observational Cardiac Arrest Research.

Observational studies are prone to a number of biases. One of these is immortal time bias. In this manuscript, we discuss immortal time bias as it pertains to post-cardiac arrest research and describe...

Importance of Early Insertion of Inferior Vena Cava Filters in Unstable Patients with Acute Pulmonary Embolism.

Immortal time bias is a possible confounding factor in cohort studies. In this investigation, we assessed mortality with inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in unstable patients with pulmonary embolism u...

Research matters: Meta-spin cycles, the blindness of bias, and rebuilding trust.

Meta-research is research about research. Meta-research may not be as click-worthy as a meta-pug-a pug dog dressed up in a pug costume-but it is crucial to understanding research. A particularly valua...

The Number of Events per Confounder for Valid Estimation of Risk Difference Using Modified Least-Squares Regression.

Risk difference is a relevant effect measure in epidemiological research. Although it is well known that when there are few events per confounder, logistic regression is not suitable for confounding c...

Measurement error is often neglected in medical literature: a systematic review.

In medical research, covariates (e.g. exposure and confounder variables) are often measured with error. While it is well accepted that this introduces bias and imprecision in exposure-outcome relation...

The Accuracy of CHOLINE PET CT in the Diagnosis of Urological Malignancies

PET CT is one of the imaging tools that are used for staging of urological malignancies. C11 Choline is a novel isotope with the advantage of its minimal secretion in the urine. This adva...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The influence of study results on the chances of publication and the tendency of investigators, reviewers, and editors to submit or accept manuscripts for publication based on the direction or strength of the study findings. Publication bias has an impact on the interpretation of clinical trials and meta-analyses. Bias can be minimized by insistence by editors on high-quality research, thorough literature reviews, acknowledgement of conflicts of interest, modification of peer review practices, etc.

Any deviation of results or inferences from the truth, or processes leading to such deviation. Bias can result from several sources: one-sided or systematic variations in measurement from the true value (systematic error); flaws in study design; deviation of inferences, interpretations, or analyses based on flawed data or data collection; etc. There is no sense of prejudice or subjectivity implied in the assessment of bias under these conditions.

Adverse of favorable selection bias exhibited by insurers or enrollees resulting in disproportionate enrollment of certain groups of people.

The introduction of error due to systematic differences in the characteristics between those selected and those not selected for a given study. In sampling bias, error is the result of failure to ensure that all members of the reference population have a known chance of selection in the sample.

The ability to estimate periods of time lapsed or duration of time.
