BACKGROUND Disease-specific quality of life (QoL) measures have enhanced the capacity of outcome measures to evaluate subtle changes and differences between groups. However, when the specific disease is rare, the cohort of patients is small and international collaboration is often necessary to accomplish meaningful research. As many of the QoL measures have(More)
BACKGROUND The Kids ITP Tools (KIT) is a disease-specific measure of health-related quality of life for children with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). To facilitate use in international trials it has been cross-culturally adapted for France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Uruguay. This study assessed the validity and reliability of the translated KIT in(More)
BACKGROUND A marked proportion of multiple sclerosis (MS) relapses is followed by incomplete recovery. Our aim was to considerably increase the evidence of the clinical use of immunoadsorption (IA) as escalation therapy for patients with MS relapse. METHODS A retrospective multicenter study was performed in MS patients with steroid refractory relapse who(More)
Published data suggest that coexisting interstitial lung disease (ILD) has an impact on mortality in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), but there is scarce knowledge if this is reflected by hemodynamics, exercise capacity, autoantibody profile, or pulmonary function. In this partially retrospective study, 27(More)
Mathematical models are able to estimate the outcome of a patient to a certain ventilator setting. Employed in a medical decision support system (MDSS) this supports finding the optimum ventilation strategy for patients mechanically ventilated in ICU. Here, knowledge about current blood gas values like end-tidal CO2 (etCO2) is important to asses patient’s(More)
