Nevertheless, the fact that very similar heterogeneity and epitope profiles have been found with endogeneous circulating NT-proBNP (13) and recombinant NT-proBNP (this study) argues that the minute structural difference does not affect the key conclusions of the present study.

The selection of instruments is driven by two criteria; namely, that the variable should correlate highly with the potentially endogeneous variable (prescription coverage) without being independently correlated with the dependent variable (drug use).
In our regression models, the variables K (capital) and L (labour can be endogeneous, and M/K (the ratio of intermediate inputs to capital, a measure of the net work rate) is endogenous, so that we may use instrumental variables in the estimation of the production functions (1) to (3) and the regression model of ln(M/K) in equation (4).
