Appropriate reference intervals are essential when evaluating laboratory test results. However, establishment of reference intervals is challenging, especially for coagulation screening tests, and uncertainty exists regarding age- and sex-dependency of test results. Data mining of laboratory information systems is an emerging approach to reference interval determination, and we evaluated its applicability to coagulation tests.

Tarantulas are a commonly kept species that are occasionally presented to veterinarians in exotic practice. A recent study on hemolymph biochemistry has been performed with nonanesthetized adult ther...
Determination of Reference Intervals of Ratios of Concentrations of Urinary Iodine to Creatinine and Thyroid Hormone Concentrations in Pregnant Women Consuming Adequate Iodine in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province.
The objectives of this study were to explore reference intervals of ratios of concentrations of urinary iodine to creatinine (UIC/UCr) in pregnant women, to determine specific reference intervals for ...
Reference intervals have traditionally been partitioned by age based on statistical significance and physiological relevance. However, analyte concentration does not change abruptly with age, but rath...
This study will establish reference range intervals for the Quantra System, a next-generation diagnostic platform that provides whole blood coagulation testing at the point-of-care.
We tried to use data mining method to find out the new model of factors that affects the progression of diabetes mellitus.
This study is intended to define the PCM normal laboratory range.
Cytoreductive surgery (CRC) with intraperitoneal hyperthermal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has been shown to improve survival in selected patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis. 51% of patients a...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the coagulation balance in a cohort of congenital disorder of glycosylation (CDG) patients using conventional tests combined with an integrated ...
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
Laboratory tests for evaluating the individual's clotting mechanism.
Examination of urine by chemical, physical, or microscopic means. Routine urinalysis usually includes performing chemical screening tests, determining specific gravity, observing any unusual color or odor, screening for bacteriuria, and examining the sediment microscopically.
A class of statistical methods applicable to a large set of probability distributions used to test for correlation, location, independence, etc. In most nonparametric statistical tests, the original scores or observations are replaced by another variable containing less information. An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data.
