Jenelle has since responded to Doris' emergency filing, claiming that her own mother, Barbara, was the motivation behind it. "Our lawyers are talking today. Doris made accusations but I can tell you that Barbara has a lot to do with them… Doris threw her own son under the bus by admitting that he has pending felonies and possibly on drugs. Her emergency filing was against me and Nathan both," the mother-of-three told E! News . "I can tell you that they are allegations, driven by my mom, and she didn't get her emergency custody. That speaks for itself."
Dallas Seavey says he did nothing wrong and has never knowingly broken any Iditarod rule and feels compelled to speak out following allegations by the Iditarod Trail Committee Monday. Seavey says he expects the ITC may also ban him from the race for the next 10 years due to the so-called "gag rule" which prohibits mushers from speaking out publicly in a negative way against the race or its sponsors. Seavey says he felt he had no other choice. See what he had to say to the board and his fans, a message he posted to YouTube Monday afternoon.
Of course, the actual numbers vary depending on the testing population. This is because interpreting of the results of any medical test (assuming no test is 100% accurate) depends upon the initial degree of belief, or the prior probability that an individual has, or does not have a disease. Generally the prior probability is estimated using the prevalence of a disease within a population or at a given testing location. The positive predictive value and negative predictive value of all tests, including HIV tests, take into account the prior probability of having a disease along with the accuracy of the testing method to determine a new degree of belief that an individual has or does not have a disease (also known as the posterior probability ). The chance that a positive test accurately indicates an HIV infection increases as the prevalence or rate of HIV infection increases in the population. Conversely, the negative predictive value will decrease as the HIV prevalence rises. Thus a positive test in a high-risk population, such as people who frequently engage in unprotected anal intercourse with unknown partners, is more likely to correctly represent HIV infection than a positive test in a very low-risk population, such as unpaid blood donors.
