Crosscheck that for each evaluation and statistical analysis described in the “Materials and Methods” section of the abstract, the corresponding results are provided. The order of the results should parallel the order in the “Materials and Methods” section. Include actual numbers, as well as percentages. Provide p-values, if appropriate, to indicate statistical significance.
Summarize in one or two sentences the conclusion(s) made on the basis of the findings. Note: The purpose and the conclusion should act as a clamp to the study which means that the conclusion should be like an answer to the purpose statement.
