This study describes the development and reports the first psychometric results of the European KIDSCREEN-52 generic health-related quality-of-life questionnaire for children and adolescents. The KIDSCREEN-52, including ten dimensions, was applied in a European survey involving 12 countries (i.e., Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece,(More)
The purpose of this study was to devise an embryo score to predict the likelihood of successful implantation after in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Unlike most studies dealing with the influence of embryo stage and morphology on pregnancy, our study was based on single rather than multiple embryo transfers. A total of 957 single embryo transfers were carried(More)
To assess the construct and criterion validity of the KIDSCREEN-27 health-related quality of life (HRQoL) questionnaire, a shorter version of the KIDSCREEN-52. The five-dimensional KIDSCREEN-27 was tested in a sample of 22,827. For criterion validity the correlation with and the percentage explained variance of the scores of the KIDSCREEN-52 instrument were(More)
This study aims to validate the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) International Quality of Life (MusiQoL) questionnaire, a multi-dimensional, self-administered questionnaire, available in 14 languages, as a disease-specific quality of life scale that can be applied internationally. A total of 1992 patients with different types and severities of MS from 15 countries(More)
To assess the criterion and construct validity of the KIDSCREEN-10 well-being and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) score, a short version of the KIDSCREEN-52 and KIDSCREEN-27 instruments. The child self-report and parent report versions of the KIDSCREEN-10 were tested in a sample of 22,830 European children and adolescents aged 8–18 and their parents(More)
We developed a self-administered instrument to assess health-related quality of life (HRQL) among people with schizophrenia. The S-QoL, based on Calman's approach to the subject's point of view, is a multidimensional instrument that is sensitive to change. The scale is a 41-item questionnaire with eight subscales (psychological well-being, self-esteem,(More)
PURPOSE The KIDSCREEN project aims to develop a European cross-cultural generic self-administered Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) instrument for children and adolescents. Proxy measures HRQoL should be a useful and practical alternative to assess children's HRQoL. The KIDSCREEN pilot study involved 3988 children and 2526 child-proxy pairs in seven(More)
Angelman syndrome (AS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder caused by the absence of a maternal contribution to chromosome 15q11–q13. There are four classes of AS according to molecular or cytogenetic status: maternal microdeletion of 15q11–q13 (approximately 70% of AS patients); uniparental disomy (UPD); defects in a putative imprinting centre (IM); the fourth(More)
The aim of this study is to assess the structural and cross-cultural validity of the KIDSCREEN-27 questionnaire. The 27-item version of the KIDSCREEN instrument was derived from a longer 52-item version and was administered to young people aged 8–18 years in 13 European countries in a cross-sectional survey. Structural and cross-cultural validity were(More)
Methodological studies were undertaken to test the validity of a three-step vitrification procedure for bovine in vitro produced embryos using glycerol and ethylene glycol as cryoprotectants. Embryos were produced in a low-phosphate culture system (medium VT1 + 10% foetal calf serum) and vitrified at day 7 post-insemination either in a mixture of 25%(More)
