Patient no-show is a prevalent problem in health care services leading to inefficient resources allocation and limited access to care. This study aims to develop and validate a patient no-show predict...
We previously developed a predictive model to assess the risk of developing acute pancreatitis (AP) in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia (HTG). In this study, we aimed to externally validate t...
The aims of this study were to develop and validate a resting energy expenditure (REE) predictive equation in a cohort of patients on dialysis and to test the accuracy of two previously developed spec...
We aimed to develop and validate a predictive model to evaluate in-hospital mortality risk in HIV/AIDS patients with PCP in China. 1001 HIV/AIDS patients with PCP admitted in the Beijing Ditan hospita...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a complex syndrome with a variety of possible etiologies and symptoms. It is characterized by high mortality and poor recovery of renal function. The incidence and mortali...
This project aims to validate a predictive model of diabetic retinopathy progression to clinically significant macular edema (CSME) needing photocoagulation and/or vision loss. The Coimbra...
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether geriatric inpatients with severe behavioral disorders exhibit higher serum ionized calcium concentration than geriatric inpatien...
The investigators have developed a diagnostic test for the evaluation of the presence of fetal malformations through metabolomic analysis of maternal peripheral blood serum by chromatograp...
World Health Organisation (WHO) has identified Dengue as the fastest spreading mosquito-borne disease in the world. This study follows on from the National Medical Research Council STOP De...
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is not a single disease, but a composite of heterogeneous subgroup. Accordingly, more sophisticated classification in ALL is essential to achieve further...
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.
A set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.
Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).
The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.
Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
