a, b Dynamic prediction of 5-year survival. The plots show time-dependent predictions of survival at 5 years after commencement of CTx for the high risk patient (a) and for the low risk one (b) after discontinuation of CTx at 8 months and the development of a DM at 1 year after start of CTx. Dashed curves indicate what the 5-year survival probability would have been without further intermediate events (discontinuation of CTx, DM)
