Independent from the cut-off level
used, there was a positive correlation between PD-L1 positivity in the TILs and PD-L1 positivity in the tumor cell (p=0.00).
In the present study, we performed the ROC analysis in order to predict the risk of systemic complications in patients with AP and determined the cut-off levels
on both admissions to the emergency unit and at 48 h.
Many studies mentioned the SR with different cut-off levels
to overcome the subjectivity and increase specificity of EUS elastography.
Table 2: Comparison of Pro-ADM1 among sepsis group and control with the cut-off level
The AUC was 0.81, and the best cut-off level
was 64.8 ng/mL.
Importantly, using ROC analysis, we proposed the cut-off level
for MMP-9 at 0.38 pg/[micro]g of total protein.
The authors concluded that the modified ROMA had higher specificity and positive predictive value than the original ROMA and suggested that a single cut-off level
may be obtained for the entire population, regardless of menopausal status .
S100A12 had 100.0% specificity (95% CI: 88.1%--upper limit is not applicable) and 46.3% sensitivity (95% CI: 35.057.8%) as a diagnostic JIA biomarker for cut-off level
10.73 ng/ml with AUC 0.787 (95% CI: 0.701-0.873).
We might have produced different, significant results in our study if we used this cut-off level
. We found no previous studies on oxytocin levels in obese children with which to compare our findings.
Determining a cut-off level
for the HbA1c proportion will help in classifying high risk and low risk patients with regard to lower limb amputation.
The optimal f-calprotectin cut-off level
separating endoscopic active UC from UC in endoscopic remission is though probably higher than 50 [micro]g/g and depends on the assay used for analysis [8, 9].
Moreover, we chose a cut-off level
of 100 x [10.sup.9]/L for inclusion into the study, which may not have been appropriate.
Lymphocytic pleural effusion and change of the adenosine deaminase cut-off level
in tuberculosis diagnosis.
In March 2015, the Reserve Bank had issued a Discussion Paper titled "Large Exposures Framework and Enhancing Credit Supply through Market Mechanism", which, among other aspects invited comments from stakeholders on ways to encourage large corporates with borrowings from the banking system above a cut-off level
to tap the market for their working capital and term loan needs.
