This is important from an evidence-based standpoint because from these, a clinician can estimate the likelihood of sciatic outcomes over time, including the precision of these prognostic estimates for an individual patient.
This showed that patients selected as candidates for lung transplantation survive considerably longer than predicted by the commonly used prognostic estimates extrapolated from the BODE validation cohort.
Using this approach, biomarker results from both measurement instances could be used to increase the precision of the prognostic estimates.

For example the evidence for interventions according to risk in primary prevention in cardiology is well established, so prognostic estimates can be easily translated into treatment recommendations.
