Неправильно употребленное слово
What is the difference between "input" and "imput"?
The difference between ‘input’ and ‘imput’ is that the latter does not exist in the English language.

It turns out that the infinitive of ‘imputed’ is not ‘imput’ but ‘impute’. It is pronounced ‘impyooted’ (not ‘impooted’) and according to Google it means:

“to represent (something, especially something undesirable) as being done or possessed by someone; attribute”

"Imput" is not a word and is often referred to as a misspelling or mispronunciation of "input". For the meanings of "Input", please refer to Input. the closest word to "Imput" is "Impute" and it refers to Imputation.

Речь идет об efficacy endpoint - показателе эффективности. Дальше описывается, как считают этот показатель, - доля пациентов, у которых через 12 недель после окончания лечения анализ дал нужный результат. Что делать, если конкретно этого анализа за 12 недель нету? Если анализы до и после удовлетворяли критериям успешности лечения, тогда условно считали, что и анализ в контрольной точке подтвердил, что терапия успешна.
