Characterising the time course of a disease with a protracted incubation period ultimately requires dense longitudinal studies, which can be prohibitively long and expensive. We consider what can be learned in the absence of such data. We estimate cohort-level biomarker trajectories by fitting cross-sectional data to a differential equation model, then integrating. These fits inform our stochastic differential equation model for synthesising individual-level biomarker trajectories for prognosis support. Our Bayesian multilevel regression model explicitly includes measurement noise estimation, which is not possible with traditional non-Bayesian mixed-effects models. Applicable to any disease, here we apply our approach to experiments on Alzheimer’s disease imaging biomarker data — volumes of regions of interest within the brain. We find that Alzheimer’s disease imaging biomarkers are dynamic over timescales from a few years to a few decades.
