Information ratio versus inter study prediction accuracy. The use of biomarkers across studies decreases the prediction accuracy. The extent of accuracy loss (y-axis) depends on the IR (x-axis), as indicated by a steep descent of the solid trend line. A dashed vertical line delineates high and low IRs. Each dot represents the mean loss of accuracy for all studies when compared to the biomarker source study accuracy.
