128

## you palce a patient on statin 3 months later you assess the result ,and realise that the result is better after one year in teh prevention of CV event why?(2)

###
latency period

you need time to see good result when a risk modifier is used

129

## quid of ROC curve(4)

###

you increase the specificity

the FN

136

## when you decrease the cut off point consequence of that(3)

###
sensitivity will increae

FP will increase

decrease positive predictive value

137

##
during crude analysis you found relationship between liver ca and smoke

further analysis divides the smoker in 2 groups alcoholic and non alcoholic

no association is found with liver cancer in either group

what this help us to explain

### confounder

138

## quid of founder(2)

###
extraneous factor associated with both a risk factor and outcome

most of the time alcoholic is smoker=confounder
