historically sipp interviews were conducted in 4-month intervals, or “waves.” in the 2008 and earlier sipp panels, each wave included the same set of core questions about the previous 4 months, or reference period, and a set of topical questions that varied from wave to wave. the 2008 panel had 16 waves spanning 6 years (may 2008 to november 2013). the sipp was reengineered following the 2008 panel, with the subsequent 2014 panel collecting data in 12-month intervals over 4 annual waves spanning january 2013 to december 2016. in the 2014 panel, all questions are asked in every interview. both the 2008 and 2014 sipp are collected using cai (computer assisted interviews) either in person or via telephone. as in previous sipp panels, interviewers return to the same household (not housing unit) and attempt to follow people interviewed in the first wave even if they move. census.gov

the ldt study showed central adrenal sufficiency in 72 patients and cai in 73 patients. considering the lower quartile of maximum sc value (21 nmol/l) in the cas group, an intermediate cai (incai) group and a real cai (rcai) group were defined. regarding the median maximum value of serum cortisol levels in the incai group, a new serum cortisol cutoff value of 450 nmol/l was established. furthermore, 91% of the patients in the rcai group were below this cutoff value. medpagetoday.com
interestingly, cai et al.  reported that removal of the entire spry domain (from m285 on) led to a similar vesicular distribution as in k279a. this result suggests that the wkkmfr motif must reside in the linker region between the trim and spry domains to properly perform its function. presumably, if the motif is only attached to the trim domain as a c-terminal tail, k279 and/or the other basic residues may form salt bridges with acidic residues on the domain surface, making it inaccessible for interactions that promote correct localization and function. nih.gov
