In conclusion, the core of translational science harbors the fundamental tenet that health care must, first and foremost, address the concerns, complaints, symptoms, and disease that pertain to each individual patient. The patient is, and must be the center, the focus, the core, and the convergence point of all of these endeavors, which together can be summarized in two fundamental domains, the transaction between them determining and establishing translational science in proprio (cf.

It establishes the replicability of the clinical outcome, within the confines set by the clinical trial requirement of sampling, randomization, dropout, measurement, intention to treat, and other intervening variables. Fixed within these elements of the clinical trial, efficacy provides critical information as to the extent to which similar findings could be obtained again, all variables kept unchanged. In that vein, efficacy is akin to the conditions of a fixed model in meta-analysis, as well as the internal validity of the study.
