Table 3 Diagnostic performances of biomarkers combination using three different classifiers

From: Ovine serum biomarkers of early and late phase scrapie

Classifiers Healthy (n = 65) Vs EP (n = 55) Healthy (n = 65) Vs LP (n = 43)
  Accuracy Se Sp Accuracy Se Sp
mROC 0,891 87,3 90,8 0,741 69,8 76,9
AdaBoost 0,867 86,6 86,8 0,780 82,5 71,1
SVM 0,873 88,0 86,8 0,729 56,5 83,7
  1. The different classifiers used were: SVM (Kernel = radial, gamma = 0.2); Adaboost (weak learner: Decision stump, iteration = 100, weight tresholdEP = 50, weight tresholdLP = 85) and mROC.
