Like any test, the evaluation of molecular markers requires both testing reagents as well as negative and positive controls
. The cost of these reagents (and in particular, the controls) is often influenced by how often the mutation presents itself clinically.
At day 0, all the three diabetic groups: Positive control
, negative control, and treated groups were shown to have high mean fasting glucose level which was above 11.11 mmol/L (positive control
group (16.61 [+ or -] 1.36), negative control group [16.33 [+ or -] 1.46], and treated group [21.78 [+ or -] 1.44] when compared to the normal group (7.27 [+ or -] 0.91).

A positive control
group (n = 26) was comprised of contralateral teeth, and a negative control group (n=8) was comprised of endodontically treated mature maxillary incisors.
After collection, all the burs were randomly allocated to positive control
, negative control and test groups.
Two hundred qualifying subjects were randomized 1:1 to the 0.454% stabilized Sn[F.sub.2] dentifrice (Crest[R] PROHEALTH[TM] Clean Mint) or positive control
dentifrice with 0.3% triclosan/0.243% sodium fluoride (Colgate[R] Total[R]).

Both a within-subject design (preassessment/postassessment surveys) at the intervention and positive control
schools and a between-subject design (within preassessment and postassessment surveys) across all three schools were used to measure the effectiveness of the nutrition education programs.
Furthermore, 4D and 5E treatment groups revealed a significant (p<0.05) improvement in fecal score from 2.67 [+ or -] 0.21 for the two treatment groups to 1.17 [+ or -] 0.17 and 1.33 [+ or -] 0.21, respectively, compared to that of the positive control
group (3C) that recorded a slight reduction from 3.17 [+ or -] 0.31 to 3.0 [+ or -] 0.32.
SRBCs were washed three times with PBS.In vitro phagocytosis of SRBCs was performed in colchicine treated groups, negative and positive control
groups by macrophages (Javeed et al., 2011; Loike et al.,2004; Seyrantepe et al.,2010).
ABI Toxoplasma gondii (RH strain) quantitated DNA (Catalog #: 08-948-250) was used as positive control
. According to the manufacturers descriptions, this positive control
contained 16000 copies of Toxoplasma gondii (RH strain) genomic DNA per microliter.
