DeLong et al. , describe a nonparametric method for comparing AUCs from correlated ROC curves which is simple to compute. One limitation of ROC curve analysis is the rather clumsy way in which composite tests are developed. In order to assess a second marker, undiagnosed cases based on the primary marker are used to construct a conditional or multi-ROC curve covering the reduced probability space . The main ﬂaw in this approach is that it requires speciﬁcation of a threshold for the primary marker and the diagnostic accuracy of the secondary marker in the remaining undiagnosed true cases is con- 31 Statistical approaches to biomarker selection ditional on this threshold.
