The reduction in itching, as measured by the PVAS
score, peaked rapidly, showing significant efficacy as early as 24 hours with a trend as early as 4 hours.
To examine the validity of both the Timed ice protocol and the PVAS
ice protocol against the reference standard, simple linear regression analyses were calculated to predict each ice protocol (independent variables) against the gold standard (dependent variable) for pooled anatomical locations.
Such methods include population viability analysis (PVA
), which assesses the risk of extinction for a given population over a particular time period.

National Past President Joe Fox and his wife, Hilda, made plans to join us for our great adventure to "The Last Frontier." On July 11, we met in Anchorage and drove to Seward to our hotel.
3 Don't get slick and try to set up multiple PVAs
from one location.
Mr Cole told the jury the case involved Postal Vote Applications (PVAs
) and a conspiracy to submit fraudulent applications.
Time-related VAS measurements were summarised using different pain indicators as described elsewhere (12,18): AUC=area under the VAS-time curve ([cm.sup.2]), Mean VAS (cm), VAS max=peak of VAS (cm), Tmax = time of VAS max (hours), PVAS
> 3 = the persistence of VAS over 3 cm, i.e.
He knows the value of experience and patient, and it pvas
these qualities, he reckoned that gave Albion their 1-0 win a Bloomfield Read.
Thus, extreme caution must be used in building count-based PVAs
from census data even in equilibrium populations.
