Current Statistical Metrics Are Pragmatic Measures to Compare the Predictive Quality of Preclinical Assays.

Cophenetic Median Trees.

Median tree inference under path-difference metrics has shown great promise for large-scale phylogeny estimation. Similar to these metrics is the family of cophenetic metrics that originates from a cl...

Sex-related responses after traumatic brain injury: considerations for preclinical modeling.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has historically been viewed as a primarily male problem, since men are more likely to experience a TBI because of more frequent participation in activities that increase ...

Metrics for Regulated Biochemical Pathway Systems.

The assessment of graphs through crisp numerical metrics has long been a hallmark of biological network analysis. However, typical graph metrics ignore regulatory signals that are crucially important ...

Predictive values and specificity of electroencephalographic findings in autoimmune encephalitis diagnosis.

Early diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis (AE) to not delay treatment is challenging but needed in practice. Most previous evidences of electroencephalographic (EEG) findings in AE were derived from ...

Clinical Trials [3345 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Neonatal Procalcitonin Intervention Study

In neonates, clinical signs and symptoms associated with early-onset sepsis are non-specific and currently available tests have poor positive and negative predictive values. The investigat...

Assessing Cirrhosis Quality of Care While Accounting for Cost

The objective of this study is to determine what influences the patient and caregiver perception of care, and if this perception associates with the percentage of and what quality metrics ...

Predictive Value of Embryonic Testing

The primary objective of this study is to determine the predictive value of preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) as a marker of embryonic competence. Secondary objectives are to define ...

Geography of ED Use and Population Health

The goal of this study is to create predictive models of emergency care and metrics for population health that can be used to analyze how events like hospital closures or disasters like Hu...

Compensatory Reserve Index as a Hemodynamic Status Evaluation Tool in Patients

We will use Compensatory Reserve Index (CRI) device to monitor hemodynamic status of patients in the hospital. We will be monitoring CRI values of patients during their care in order to ve...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

Preclinical testing of drugs in experimental animals or in vitro for their biological and toxic effects and potential clinical applications.

The complete summaries of the frequencies of the values or categories of a measurement made on a group of items, a population, or other collection of data. The distribution tells either how many or what proportion of the group was found to have each value (or each range of values) out of all the possible values that the quantitative measure can have.

Instructional use of examples or cases to teach using problem-solving skills and critical thinking.

A system of record keeping in which a list of the patient's problems is made and all history, physical findings, laboratory data, etc. pertinent to each problem are placed under that heading.
