From 2007-2015, there were 137.575 patients who underwent exploratory laparotomy in the NTDB
while only 21.579 cases of exploratory thoracotomy were reported.
With regards to high-energy mechanisms of injury, the NTDB
cohort (N = 97,034) and Carolinas cohort (N = 1,201) demonstrated no differences in GCS scores.
has more than five million records and by participating, we gain access to information that enables us to compare our performance to that in other trauma centres and thus to improve our efforts.
data for 2001-2005 were obtained from the ACS in compliance with its standard Data Use Agreement.
Known sources of error were (1) spatial inaccuracies in the GCPs obtained from the NTDB
(up to 40 m difference on either axis between GPS and NTDB
coordinates of the same feature), (2) the lack of camera and lens calibration information for the early photographs, and (3) inaccuracies in the DEM, which is mostly based on NTDB
hypsography and therefore subject to the same error as the NTDB-derived GCPs.
A total of 117 international-pharmaceutical-firm-invested pharmaceutical companies (IPFIPCs) in Mainland China were defined as the population for the research, based on four major sources: l) the Catalogue of Chinese Pharmaceutical Enterprises with Foreign Investment (published by the China Centre for Pharmaceutical International Exchange (CCPIE, 1995), an agency of State Pharmaceutical Administration of China); 2) the Market Reports of National Trade Data Bank of the United States of America (NTDB
, 1996); 3) MIMS Asia (MIMS, 1998); and 4) the report of Shanghai Pharmaceutical (Group) Corporation (SPGC, 1999).
A recent request for proposals let by the National Centre for Topographic Data for improvements to the content of the National Topographic Data Base (NTDB
) road network received no bids in its initial form; issues around ownership of the intellectual property (i.e., Crown copyright) were seen as the main stumbling block.
