The relative sensitivity and relative specificity
of dianostic tests were calculated using the method described by Mcdiarmid and Hellstrom (1987).
The relative specificity
of PCT for bacterial infection is not necessarily a problem, however, because most infections associated with the development of severe sepsis are, in fact, bacterial.
A total of 56 serum samples with negative titres at a dilution of 1:100 against serovars Pomona, Icterohaemorrhagia, Canicola, Grippotyphosa, Autumnalis, Javanica and Hebdomidis were used to determine the relative specificity
of the ELISA.
There was no difference between methods when high-grade or low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion was used for calculating relative specificity
It hypothesizes that a firm's preference between sell-off and layoff depends on the underlying transaction costs, which in turn are contingent on the relative specificity
of physical and human assets.
One draw of using molasses-based lures for pest control, whether for male or female moths, is their relative specificity
1997) have reported that some thermophilic and other algae have rubisco with a much greater relative specificity
Given the relative specificity
of hantavirus-host relationships, and the absence of infection of any other species in the study area, we suspect that the virus we have detected is most likely to be Bloodland Lake virus, which as been described as being associated with prairie voles.
The major difference among these classifications is relative specificity
, and even experienced strategic planners sometimes disagree on the classification of some items.
These biopesticides can be used to control wide variety of pests although every single active ingredient shows relative specificity
for its target.
It's possible to use the "blast" flag in this way because of the relative specificity
of this flag.
pylori system demonstrated a relative sensitivity of 91 percent in biopsy positive specimens, a relative specificity
of 98 percent in biopsy negative specimens and a relative agreement of 95 percent using fingerstick specimens compared with ELISA.
