In this issue, langholz and richardson and hein et al address two recent articles by deubner and colleagues, about nested case-control studies in one article, deubner and colleagues called into question the fundamental validity of the nested case-control design if their critique is compelling, it would raise doubts about. Abstract one of the main perceived advantages of using a case-cohort design compared with a nested case-control design in an epidemiologic study is the ability to evaluate with the same subcohort outcomes other than the primary outcome of interest in this paper, we show that valid inferences about. A nested case control (ncc) study is a variation of a case-control study in which cases and controls are drawn from the population in a fully enumerated cohort usually, the exposure of interest is only measured among the cases and the selected controls thus the nested case control study is less efficient than the full cohort.
