On the other hand cheap extra super avana 260 mg with visa, and as with the Phase I study, this relatively easy Phase II investigation tells us whether the promising diagnostic test is worth further, costlier evaluation; as we have said elsewhere,10 if the test cannot tell the difference between a duck and a yak it is worthless in diagnosing either one. As long as the writers and readers of a Phase II explanatory study report make no pragmatic claims about its usefulness in routine clinical practice, no harm is done. Furthermore, criticisms of Phase II explanatory studies for their failure to satisfy the methodological standards employed in Phase III pragmatic studies do not make sense. Phase III questions: Among patients in whom it is clinically sensible to suspect the target disorder, does the level of the test result distinguish those with and without the target disorder? Given its promise in Phase I and II studies, it is understandable that BNP would be tested in the much costlier and more time-consuming Phase III study, in order to determine whether it was really useful among patients in whom it is clinically sensible to suspect LVD. As we were writing this chapter, an Oxfordshire group of clinical investigators reported that they did just that by inviting area general practitioners “to refer patients with suspected heart failure to our clinic”. About one third of the patients referred by their general practitioners had LVD on echocardiography. These investigators documented that BNP measurements did not look nearly as promising when tested in a Phase III study in the pragmatic real-world setting of routine clinical practice, and concluded that “introducing routine measurement [of BNP] would be unlikely to improve the diagnosis of symptomatic [LVD] in the 28 ARCHITECTURE OF DIAGNOSTIC RESEARCH Table 2.

However, their report of the study also documented the effect of two other cut-points for BNP. This led both to a counterclaim on the usefulness of BNP in the subsequent email letters to the editor, and to an opportunity for us to describe an alternative way of presenting information about the accuracy of a diagnostic test: the multilevel likelihood ratio (LR).

Endocrine System © The McGraw−Hill Anatomy, Sixth Edition Coordination Companies, 2001 460 Unit 5 Integration and Coordination PITUITARY GLAND The neurohypophysis of the pituitary gland releases hormones that are produced by the hypothalamus, whereas the adenohy- pophysis of the pituitary gland secretes its own hormones in re- sponse to regulation from hypothalamic hormones. The secretions of the pituitary gland are thus controlled by the hypothalamus, as well as by negative feedback influences from the target glands. Objective 6 List the hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis and neurohypophysis. Objective 7 Describe, in a general way, the actions of anterior pituitary hormones. Objective 8 Explain how the secretions of anterior and posterior pituitary hormones are controlled by the hypothalamus. Objective 9 Explain how the secretion of anterior pituitary hormones is regulated by negative feedback.
