Inschatting Predict niet altijd juist voor jonge vrouwen

'The researchers used information from 3,000 young women diagnosed with oestrogen receptor (ER) positive and ER negative breast cancer in the UK between 2000 and 2008.

When considering all cases together, PREDICT underestimated the number of deaths within five years of diagnosis by 25 per cent, with around 610 deaths occurring in total compared with around 460 predicted.'

'Researchers found that PREDICT’s longer-term estimates of how many young women would die within eight and 10 years of diagnosis were more accurate. But the pattern of underestimating deaths in women with ER positive tumours and overestimating deaths in those with ER negative tumours largely persisted.'
