forces the water resource planners to deal with the distant future, which is not
possible without long-term, mediumterm and also short-term predictions. Systems
science, therefore, includes prognostics as a scientific field that investigates the
general principles of development, methods of prediction for arbitrary objects and

Prognostic factors serve mainly as the basis for making individually tailored
predictions. Research conclusions are based on at least. a partial. understanding
of underlying mechanisms and pathways, but they apply separately to each
individual patient. The flavor of factor-centered prognostic research is perhaps
more comfortably allied with viewing medicine as a science. The flavor of patient-

Underlying this complexity, there are probably a small number of "rules" or
parameters that govern the initiation of the transformation process, though
progression of this process is marked by randomness and chaos, making specific
outcomes difficult to predict from an original set of conditions. In many respects,
assessing clinical outcome using present biomarkers is analogous to planetary
weather forecasting using only barometric pressure and wind direction. The
