AIM We compared three statistical methods in selecting a panel of serum lipid biomarkers for mesothelioma and asbestos exposure. MATERIALS & METHODS Serum samples from mesothelioma, asbestos-exposed subjects and controls (40 per group) were analyzed. Three variable selection methods were considered: top-ranked predictors from univariate model, stepwise and least absolute shrinkage and selection operator. Crossed-validated area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was used to… CONTINUE READING
