Bio-rational pesticides based on Nuclear Polyhedrosis Virus (NPV) and Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) are very effective tool to achieve the resistance problems and protect the natural enemies and environment.
In fact, only 38 percent of all stocks in the market can generate positive NPVs.
For triage of CIN2+ among all cervical samples, HR-HPV detection showed better NPV, PPV, and specificity (80.8%, 49.5%, and 33.3%, respectively).
The sensitivity and NPV of each troponin cutpoint for T1MI are shown here in Figs.
We also compared the PPV and NPV for the diagnosis of GD using the optimal cut-off values for FT3, FT4, and FT3/FT4 ratio.
The sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of [sup.18]F-NaF PET/CT and [sup.18]F-FDG PET/CT for the diagnosis of osseous metastatic lesions are presented in Table 4.
On the other hand, Education and Architecture have the lowest IRR and NPV. In addition, the results suggest that students tend to choose a university major based on the NPV and not on the IRR.
The main studies published with first-generation CCE [10, 12, 13] reported sensitivities of 63-88% and specificities of 64-94% in the detection of colonic lesions with high NPVs. Two recent meta-analyses with 626 patients and 837 patients, respectively, found sensitivities for significant polyps of 69-76%, with specificities of 86% and 82% [20, 22].
To assess the accuracy of each scanner, we calculated (1) the true positive rates (TPRs); (2) the true negative rates (TNRs); (3) the false positive rates (FPRs); (4) the false negative rates (FNRs); (5) the positive predictive values (PPVs); (6) the negative predictive values (NPVs); (7) and the false omission rates (FORs) [31, 32].
