In this issue, Rosenberg and colleagues report how they prospectively validated a gene expression–based algorithm for predicting prevalent CAD status in nondiabetic patients with suspected CAD in whom coronary angiography is clinically indicated. This editorial describes how there is too little information about the derivation of the algorithm for readers to determine whether the screening tool provides internally valid results and discusses why caution should be used in interpreting the report.
