We previously demonstrated that whole blood contains significantly more hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA than plasma. To validate the whole-blood-based HCV RNA detection method, a prospective comparison of HCV RNA detection in whole blood and plasma from 50 patients with chronic liver disease was undertaken. Whole-blood and plasma aliquots were independently(More)
Different distributions of confounding variables in populations complicate any comparison of the relative frequency of an event. To resolve this, methods for fitting statistical models to tables of rates have recently been developed. One such model is the multiplicative model. We performed a Monte Carlo study of the multiplicative model for a 4 X 3 table of(More)
