BACKGROUND: Attribute selection represents an important step in the development of discrete-choice experiments (DCEs), but is often poorly reported. In some situations, the number of attributes identified may exceed what one may find possible to pilot in a DCE. Hence, there is a need to gain insight into methods to select attributes in order to construct the final list of attributes. This study aims to test the feasibility of using the nominal group technique (NGT) to select attributes for DCEs. METHODS: Patient group discussions (4-8 participants) were convened to prioritize a list of 12 potentially important attributes for osteoporosis drug therapy. The NGT consisted of three steps: an individual ranking of the 12 attributes by importance from 1 to 12, a group discussion on each of the attributes, including a group review of the aggregate score of the initial rankings, and a second ranking task of the same attributes. RESULTS: Twenty-six osteoporotic patients participated in five NGT sessions. Most (80%) of the patients changed their ranking after the discussion. However, the average initial and final ranking did not differ markedly. In the final ranking, the most important medication attributes were effectiveness, side effects, and frequency and mode of administration. Some (15%) of the patients did not correctly rank from 1 to 12, and the order of attributes did play a role in the ranking. CONCLUSION: The NGT is feasible for selecting attributes for DCEs. Although in the context of this study, the NGT session had little impact on prioritizing attributes, this approach is rigorous, transparent, and improves the face validity of DCEs. Additional research in other contexts (different decisional problems or different diseases) is needed to determine the added value of the NGT session, to assess the optimal ranking/rating method with control of ordering effects, and to compare the attributes selected with the different approaches.

Sixty Prim'holstein cows with retained placenta for more than 24 hours after parturition, were shared in three groups of 20 cows each. All cows were delivred manually 24 to 36 hours post partum and received local treatment with 1 g of oxytetracyclin. Cows in group 1 received two intra-muscular injections of 5 mg etiproston on day of manual delivery (D1) and 15 days after (D15). Cows on group II received only one etiproston administration (D1), and cows in group III remained untreated. Ratios of delayed uterine involution were respectively 20, 40 and 55 % in groupsI,II and III(I<0.05;II<0.005). PAGI concentrations were checked 15 days after parturition and were significantly higher in cows affected by delayed uterine involution (p < 0.05). V-IAF intervals were significantly (p < 0.05) different between groups I (58 days), II (102 days) and III(143 days). [less ▲]

Shearography is a growing optical technique in the field of non-destructive testing (NDT). Hololab developed an out of plane, in line and almost common path interferometer based on polarization states separation using a coated prism for digital phase-shifting shearography. This setup is efficient but does not allow varying the shearing direction, that is an important parameter for defects detection and quantification. To overcome this disadvantage, the coated prism is substituted by a Savart plate device that allows scanning several shearing directions by rotating the device around the light propagation axis. Many advantages of the prism substitution are discussed. The behaviour of the Savart plate as a shearing device is experimentally analyzed to optimize its integration within the interferometer. Recorded phasemaps in NDT for different shearing directions are presented. [less ▲]
