Measuring the functional impact of fatigue: initial validation of the fatigue impact scale.
TLDR
This initial validation study indicates that the FIS has considerable merit as a measure of patient's attribution of functional limitations to symptoms of fatigue. Expand
The impact of fatigue on patients with multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
Fatigue is a very prevalent and severe problem in MS, fatigue impact cannot be predicted by clinical measures of neurologic impairment, and fatigue has a significant effect on the mental health and general health status of MS patients. Expand
Minimal Neuropsychological Assessment of MS Patients: A Consensus Approach
TLDR
The Minimal Assessment of Cognitive Function in MS (MACFIMS), a 90-minute NP battery, is composed of seven neuropsychological tests, covering five cognitive domains commonly impaired in MS, and is supplemented by a measure of estimated premorbid cognitive ability. Expand
Incidence and prevalence of multiple sclerosis in Europe: a systematic review
TLDR
Despite the breadth of the literature on the epidemiology of MS in Europe, inter-study comparisons are hampered by the lack of standardization and further research should focus on regions not yet studied and the evaluation of ethnic differences in MS prevalence and incidence. Expand
The American College of Rheumatology nomenclature and case definitions for neuropsychiatric lupus syndromes.
TLDR
The American College of Rheumatology Nomenclature for NPSLE provides case definitions for 19 neuropsychiatric syndromes seen in SLE, with reporting standards and recommendations for laboratory and imaging tests. Expand
The risk of dementia and death after delirium.
TLDR
Delirium appears to be an important marker of risk for dementia and death, even in older people without prior cognitive or functional impairment. Expand
Pain prevalence, severity and impact in a clinic sample of multiple sclerosis patients
TLDR
There was wide variability in the number of pain hours/week reported with 17.6% of the sample reporting continuous pain for the month preceding assessment, and patients with pain reported poorer mental health and more social‐role handicap. Expand
The organization of eye and limb movements during unrestricted reaching to targets in contralateral and ipsilateral visual space
TLDR
Rightward-going eye movements to a given target were initiated more quickly when accompanied by reaching with the right hand than when they were accompanied by reaches with the left hand, suggesting that reaching toward a target under visual control involves a common integration of both eye and hand movements. Expand
A comparison of health utility measures for the evaluation of multiple sclerosis treatments
TLDR
The health utility measures were generally feasible and reliable but the HUI Mark III demonstrated highest concordance with the EDSS across the full range of neurological disability. Expand
Incidence and Prevalence of Multiple Sclerosis in the Americas: A Systematic Review
TLDR
There is a need for future studies of MS prevalence and incidence to include uniform case definitions, employ comparable methods of ascertainment, report standardized results, and be performed on a national level, as well as the inconsistencies in methodologies and quality among the published studies.
