Analysis demonstrates correlation of clinical sensitivity
with sample volume
The difficulty with this is that many of the RIDTs have poor analytical and clinical sensitivity
In-house validation study showed a 100% clinical sensitivity
and specificity, with an LLOD of approximate 0.
Overall, clinical sensitivity
was 68% (95% CI 53%-80%), clinical specificity 79% (95% CI 77%-81%), positive predictive value 8%, and negative predictive value 99%.
Table 4 suggests that assays with high clinical sensitivity
(ie, few negative results among patients with high likelihood of disease) may exhibit reduced clinical specificity (ie, many positive results among patients with low likelihood of disease).
of each assay described are also presented.
on the detection of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus by rapid antigen test found low clinical sensitivity
for the QuickVue Influenza assay (Quidel, San Diego, CA, USA) in comparison to RT-PCR (11).
Assessment of molecular markers of clinical sensitivity
to single-agent taxane therapy for metastatic breast cancer.
The key themes reported here can be applied not only to parents with infants in the hospital setting, but to a greater scope of clinical sensitivity
across settings and age span.
to confirm the ability of the test to detect or predict the associated disorder, taking into account clinical sensitivity
of the test was 37% (17 of 46), with no positives among the 69 individuals with normal colonoscopies or the 19 individuals with adenomas.
Therefore, a crucial aspect of these training programs is clinical sensitivity
training and supervision with a licensed psychologist with expertise in working with culturally diverse populations.
