OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to develop and validate an algorithm that predicts EQ-5D utility from the St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and to examine the effect of using this algorithm in predicting quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs). METHODS In the TORCH (Towards a Revolution in COPD Health) trial, the SGRQ and EQ-5D were administered at baseline and every 24 weeks for 3 years. To map EQ-5D utility from the… CONTINUE READING
