Disease relevance of Expert Testimony


High impact information on Expert Testimony


Biological context of Expert Testimony

  • Consequently, under FDA contract, an ad hoc Expert Panel was convened by the Life Sciences Research Office of the American Society for Nutritional Sciences to make recommendations for the nutrient content of formulas for preterm-LBW infants based on current scientific knowledge and expert opinion [11].
  • Epilepsy and evidence-based medicine: a vote of confidence in expert opinion from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence [12]?

Anatomical context of Expert Testimony


Associations of Expert Testimony with chemical compounds

  • Apparently equating the question of whether expert testimony is reliable with the question of whether it is genuinely scientific, in Daubert v Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc (1993) the US Supreme Court ran together Karl Popper's and Carl Hempel's incompatible philosophies of science [14].
  • Evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against warfarin prophylaxis for DVT in fractures distal to the hip (SOR: C, based on expert opinion) [15].
  • Furosemide and other diuretics reduce symptomatic volume overload in diastolic and systolic dysfunction (SOR: C, based on expert opinion) [16].
  • Appropriateness of omeprazole use was assessed by literature review and expert opinion [17].
  • Ocular permeation and inhibition of retinal inflammation: an examination of data and expert opinion on the clinical utility of nepafenac [18].

Gene context of Expert Testimony

  • EVIDENCE: Published literature, clinical experience, and expert opinion concerning the emergence and subsequent management of MRSA cases in health care institutions [19].
  • Many physicians appear in court as expert witnesses, but the quality of their testimony varies considerably, says a Nova Scotia judge [20].
  • Where necessary, these data were augmented with a combination of expert opinion, evidence from the literature and observational data relating to the management and cost of IVF treatment in the UK [21].
  • METHODS: Review of the medical and family history was made by the expert witness (HTL) with appropriate documentation of the chronology of symptoms, as derived from depositions [22].
  • Both for welfare scores and weighting factors the model correlated significantly with expert opinion (Spearman's Rho: 0.92, P < 0.001, and 0.72, P < 0.01, respectively) [23].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Expert Testimony

  • METHODS: Analysis of documents and expert opinions on mammography screening, ultrasound examinations during normal pregnancy, and screening for prostate-specific antigen (PSA) with a focus on services provided, recommendations, formal regulations, national papers, projects, and formal assessments [24].
  • This concept was formulated by expert opinion of the German Task Force on NNER to define both the structural and process quality of rehabilitation in patients who sustained brain damage with sensory motor, cognitive, and neurobehavioural impairment [25].
  • Physical examination and laboratory tests in the management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis: development of recommendations for clinical practice based on published evidence and expert opinion [26].
