The article presents the outcome of a medical research which aims to see whether a nine factor score predicts risk for bleeding in outpatients who are at risk for atherothrombosis. Undertaken by G. Ducrocq and colleagues on 589 patients, it was seen that bleeding risk included nine variables. It was also evident that the favorable benefit-risk balance can be difficult to achieve when multiple agents are used. The result showed that 804 serious bleeding episodes occurred in the derivation cohort.
