English translation:I believe these could well be the patient's initials ...
Explanation:
... see if that will fit your context. As you know, in clinical trial medical reports the patients are identified by a number but otherwise only their initials, and generally, if the names are actually there, they are redacted leaving only the initials.

Good luck!

I don't think so because they appear towards the end of the report rather than the at the beginning with the other data on the patient, but I'm not sure so thanks anyway
