Abstract
Although the written component of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC)internal medicine examination is important for obtaining licensure and certification as a specialist, no methods exist to predict a candidate's performance on the examination.
We obtained data from 5 Canadian universities from 1988 to 1998 in order to compare raw scores from the American Internal Medicine In-Training Examination (AIMI-TE) with raw scores and outcomes (pass or fail) of the written component of the RCPSC internal medicine examination.
Mean scores on the AIMI-TE correlated well with scores on the RCPSC internal medicine written examination for all postgraduate years (r = 0.62, r = 0.55 and r = 0.65 for postgraduate years 1, 2 and 3 respectively). Scores above the 50th percentile on the AIMI-TE w/ere predictive of a low failure rate (

Abstract
Two Swedish families with Huntington's disease (HD) have been investigated for linkage with G8 (D4S10). In one family from northern Sweden (Family 1) 48 family members were examined, and in another family from the southwestern part of Sweden (Family 2) 14 family members were examined. The lod scores were 1.531 for Family 1 and 2.057 for Family 2, and the combined lod score was 3.59. The HD gene was segregating with the haplotype C in Family 1 and with haplotype A in Family 2. The predictive value of the test was obvious. Before the testing with the G8 probe, 84.2% of the family members in Family 1 had a theoretical risk of 25% or 50% of having the HD gene. After the testing with the G8 probe, only 23.7% of the family members remained at the same risk, and it could also be certified that 63.2% had no or little risk of having the HD gene. Only one asymptomatic person was predicted to have HD.

Abstract
The accuracy of 1997 Partin Tables' lymph node invasion (LNI) predictions exhibits important variability in different testing populations. We explored the LNI predictive accuracy in radical prostatectomy (RP) patients from Montreal, Canada. Moreover, we assessed the extent of change in predictive accuracy related to a modification of PSA coding from categorical to continuous.
We used pretreatment serum PSA, clinical stage, and biopsy Gleason sum from 537 men treated with RP to compare predicted and observed rates of LNI. Accuracy was quantified with receiver-operating characteristics curves.
Accuracy was 0.760 in 369 evaluable patients, when categorically coded pretreatment PSA (0-4, 4.1-10, 10.1-20, 20.1+) was combined with clinical stage and biopsy Gleason sum. A 2.7% accuracy increase was noted when categorically coded PSA was replaced with continuously coded values.
Partin Tables' LNI predictions showed comparable accuracy to a community-based sample from the United States (0.766), and to a recent, multi-institutional sample (0.740). However, accuracy was lower than reported in internal (0.818), and external (0.837) academic, validation cohorts. Accuracy of LNI predictions was appreciably higher, when continuously coded PSA was used.

Abstract
Low levels of physical activity (PA) and poor fitness tend to predict a decline in mobility. The current study investigated whether PA modifies the predictive value of health-related fitness (HRF) tests on difficulty in walking 2 km (WD).
PA was assessed by self-reported questionnaires in 1990 and 1996. Subjects age 55 to 69 years and free of self-reported WD participated in assessment of HRF in 1996. Occurrence of WD was assessed by questionnaire in 2002 (n=537).
There were no statistically significant interactions between PA and HRF tests; thus, PA and HRF were both independent predictors of WD. Regardless of the PA level, the subjects in the poorest performing third in each HRF test had higher risk of WD than the subjects in the best performing third.
PA and HRF seemed to be independent predictors of WD, although the association of PA with WD was weaker than the association of HRF. Thus, PA did not modify the predictive value of HRF on WD.
