Population models for clinical prediction

Estimates of the risk of clinical events, such as death, stroke, aggravation or recovery, are the basis of therapeutic decisions.

The simplest such estimates rely on counting events in past populations: a new case is supposed to have a risk equal to the event rate previously observed in supposedly similar patients.

To include knowledge of methabolic, pathological and pharmacological processes, equations that connect measurements at the time of prediction with the rate of events at various times in the future must be added to the estimation. [more ...]
