4. Because atheroma formation is silent, public health practitioners and physicians would like a blood test that actually measures the extent of atheroma formation (not just the level of LDL, which is a risk factor for atherosclerosis). You are working at a company that has just devised a blood test that measures extent of plaque formation. A prospective study that examined the correlation of outcomes with test results has just been completed. Your job is to put out a press release about the results of the study. Below are the data. Pick the appropriate statement or statements for your press release. Out of 500 people who had heart attacks, 300 tested positive 10 years earlier using the new test. Out of 500 people who did not have heart attacks, 50 tested positive 10 years earlier using the new test. Possible statements for your press release: a.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
