The inclusion of a read-out to detect functional consequences of craniofacial alterations in the zebrafish embryotoxicity test will allow to evaluate these alterations which are difficult to assess mo...
Nanotechnology and use of nanomaterials (NMs) improve life quality, economic growth and environmental health. However, the increasing production and use of NMs in commercial products has led to concer...
Proficiency testing is a key component of quality assurance programs within crime laboratories and can help improve laboratory practices. However, current proficiency testing procedures contain signif...
Baseline computerized testing is a common component of concussion assessments, and the testing environment has been suggested to influence test performance and validity.
One-in-three men who have sex with men (MSM) in Uganda have never tested for HIV. Peer-driven HIV testing strategies could increase testing coverage among non-testers. We evaluated the yield of peer d...
This is a randomized controlled clinical trial in which adults receiving drug abuse treatment will be recruited to participate in a multi-center HIV testing and counseling study. The purp...
The investigators propose to improve HIV prevention and care through expanding HIV testing options to include self-testing for young women, their peers and their sex partners, and by facil...
This study explores whether offering follow-up counseling and referral over the phone after using a home-based HIV test increases rates of ever and repeat testing, compared with home-based...
The investigators propose a study to design and test a brief intervention to increase uptake of consistent HIV self-testing among YBMSM using a novel and culturally-relevant "buddy system"...
Blood is the most commonly used specimen to test for HIV. In the past 20 years, use of saliva as an alternative specimen for HIV testing has been explored. Today, very sensitive tests have...
The process of gaining approval by a government regulatory agency for DIAGNOSTIC REAGENTS AND TEST KITS. This includes any required preclinical or clinical testing, review, submission, and evaluation of the applications and test results, and post-marketing surveillance.
Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.
Assessments aimed at determining agreement in diagnostic test results among laboratories. Identical survey samples are distributed to participating laboratories, with results stratified according to testing methodologies.
A neuropsychological test designed to assess EXECUTIVE FUNCTION typically assigned to the FRONTAL LOBE (e.g., abstract thinking, and strategic planning). The subjects are asked to sort numbered response cards according to different principles and to alter their approach during testing.
The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
