Overall Agreement among the CTD Screen, IIF, EliA ENA, and LIA Test Results according to the AARD Groups.
When the CTD screen ratios were considered as qualitative results with a cutoff of 1.0 (equivocal ratios scored as negative results), as suggested by the manufacturer, the overall concordance rates were 80.4% for the CTD screen versus IIF, 89.3% versus EliA ENA, and 79.5% versus LIA in the total AARD group.
The kappa coefficients between the CTD screen and EliA ENA were good (0.70), while those between the CTD screen and IIF were moderate (0.47 for cutoff 1.0 and 0.41 for cutoff 0.7), and those between the CTD screen and LIA were fair (0.29 for cutoff 1.0 and 0.32 for cutoff 0.7).
Seamus said: "The motivation of Lia was there, and that would make me do anything.
"It took a lot of training, but if it gets Lia what she needs, it'll be worth it."
Seamus, a security guard trainer, said when Lia was born, after a mammoth 72-hour labour, he and mum Rosie, 23, had no idea there was anything wrong.
