disease status

— Classification of a participant in a study as with or without a health condition of interest

Full explanation:

In a treatment comparison the disease status of a participant can be used as an outcome.

This can be either having a health condition or not (e.g. having a tumour or not) or a disease stage (e.g. having metastases (spreading) or not).
