Researchers active in clinical, epidemiological, or translational research have the aim to publish their outcomes so that they can generalize their findings to the population. The sample size decision should be based on the difference in the result between the two groups analyzed as in an analytical subject field. It should also be based on the acceptable P value for statistical significance and the expected statistical power to test a hypothesis.
