In total, 46 studies were found for breast masses, lymph nodes, prostate carcinoma, liver diseases, salivary and parotid gland diseases, pancreatic masses, musculoskeletal diseases and renal diseases, and the overall sensitivity of sonoelastography in diagnosing all these diseases was 83.14% while specificity was 81.41%.

Temporal specificity of latent inhibition in rats with daily water restriction prior to taste conditioning

In rats, it was shown that introducing contextual changes in the time of day between the pre-exposure and conditioning stages reduced the magnitude of LI in the CTA paradigm (Manrique et al., 2004). Nevertheless, the key elements of the procedure that induce the temporal specificity of LI of CTA have not been fully established

Validation of the Chemotaxis of Plant Parasitic Nematodes Toward Host Root Exudates

motility assays have been conducted via employing agar gel (pluronic F-127), natural sand and soil as migration matrices, and elucidated that PPN are responsive to plant roots, pH, redox potentials, temperature, moisture, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and inorganic ions (reviewed in Prot, 1980; Perry, 1996; Curtis, 2008; Fosu-Nyarko and Jones, 2016). These studies, however, have failed to explain the host specificity of PPN, and argued that plant and PPN interactions are not selective in general (Prot, 1980

MULTINOMIAL LOGISTIC REGRESSION APPROACH FOR THE EVALUATION OF BINARY DIAGNOSTIC TEST IN MEDICAL RESEARCH

Evaluating the effect of variables on diagnostic measures (sensitivity, specificity, positive, and negative predictive values) is often of interest to clinical researchers. Logistic regression (LR) models can be used to predict diagnostic measures of a screening test. A marginal model framework using generalized estimating equation (GEE) with logit/log link can be used to compare the diagnostic measures between two or more screening tests. These individual modeling approaches to each diagnostic

An Improve Protocol for PCR Using LM1 and LM2 Primers for Listeria monocytogenes Detection in Food Matrices

Several studies have observed that use of a conventional PCR protocol with primers LM1 and LM2 for the identification of the hlyA gene of Listeria monocytogenes generates non-specific PCR amplifications and false positives. For this reason, in this study we provide a modified PCR protocol that improves the specificity of the results obtained with LM1 and LM2 primers.

Screening and Identification of Yeasts Antagonistic to Pathogenic Fungi Show a Narrow Optimal pH Range for Antagonistic Activity

Microbes have evolved ways of interference competition to gain advantage over their ecological competitors. The use of secreted antagonistic compounds by yeast cells is one of the prominent examples. Although this killer behavior has been thoroughly studied in laboratory yeast strains, our knowledge of the antagonistic specificity of killer effects in nature remains limited. In this study, yeast strains were collected from various niches and screened for antagonistic activity against one toxin

Applications of selected cells in immunohematology in a developing country: case studies

When an antibody is detected, its specificity should be determined and its likely clinical significance should be assessed. When one antibody has been identified, it becomes necessary to confirm the presence of additional significant antibodies to ensure that compatible blood is provided to the patient. To perform this confirmation, specific reagent red blood cells (RBCs) are selected; these are called selected cells. Though the most common use of selected cells is for antibody confirmation

Based on our results, the presence of KPC does not in itself influence the categorization of resistance.
