The surface under the cumulative ranking curves (SUCRA), which is a numeric presentation of the overall ranking and presents a single number associated with each treatment, were created based on ranked probability.
Both of these outcomes are consistent with the surface under cummulative ranking curve, or SUCRA, rankings.
Safflower oil showed the highest surface under the cumulative ranking curve (SUCRA) value for LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C)(82 per cent) and total cholesterol (90 per cent), followed by rapeseed oil (76 per cent for LDL-C, 85 per cent for TC).
To rank the treatments, we used the surface under the cumulative ranking (SUCRA) probabilities (16).
We estimated the relative ranking probability of each strategy and obtained the hierarchy of competing interventions using rankograms and the surface under the cumulative ranking curve (SUCRA).[20] The SUCRA index ranges between 0 (or 0%) and 1 (or 100%), where the treatments with the highest and lowest SUCRA are considered to be the best and worst treatments, respectively.
Finding a killer wielding a powerful magical item is a hard enough job on the best of days, but Reva has been saddled with a new partner (who is not up to Reva's exacting standards) and must deal with the "assistance" of the Sucra, the King's Secret Police, who have their own agenda for finding the killer.
Probabilities of each treatment being at a specific order and surface under the cumulative ranking area (SUCRA) values were estimated running 10,000 replications.
Products include La Vida Loca Margarita, Sevilla Red Sangria, Karma Sucra Cosmopolitan and Scottish Lemonade Whiskey Sour.
A simple numerical summary that can supplement the rankogram plot is to estimate the surface under the cumulative ranking (SUCRA) lines for each of the considered treatment in NMA.
Then, we obtained a treatment hierarchy using the surface under the cumulative ranking curve (SUCRA) [20] and posterior mean ranks.
Tambien se compararon los resultados de las matrices que elaboro el GDG con los resultados del analisis de SUCRA (q) propuesto por Leucht y colaboradores en su publicacion (28) sobre comparaciones multiples y se encontraron coincidencias significativas que permitieron la jerarquizacion que se diseuo para el establecimiento de lineas de manejo, lo cual indica que la propuesta es consistente con otros estudios.
