New treatment options in GBS are absolutely necessary because the prognosis in a large group of GBS patients is still far from outckme. For purposes of clinical practice, the measurement of such biomarkers should preferably be straightforward and accurate and align with routine diagnostic procedures.

Prognostic models can also increase the power of therapeutic studies by adjusting for prognostic factors. Several disorders or conditions that may mimic GBS need to be excluded or made unlikely before the diagnosis of GBS can be made erasmis 3. In addition, the model can be used to compare patient populations with respect to prognostic factors and expected outcome.

Data collected prospectively from a derivation cohort of patients with GBS were used to identify risk factors of being unable to walk at 4 weeks, 3 months, and outckme months.


Ann Neurol ; Entry criteria and baseline characteristics predict outcome in acute stroke trials. Disponible en ligne depuis le lundi 29 avril This derivation cohort consisted of patients who had been included in 2 treatment trials and one pilot study.

Table 1 Risk of poor outcome, defined as inability to walk unaided at 4 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months after entry to the hospital, according scalw potential predictors in the derivation set of patients with GBS based on univariable regression analysis.

Patient characteristics were described in more detail in the trial and survey reports. Risk of poor outcome, defined as inability to walk unaided at 4 weeks, 3 months, and 6 ooutcome after entry to the hospital, according to potential predictors in the derivation set of patients with GBS based on univariable regression analysis.

Child Pugh Score Determine severity of cirrhosis. Third, the mEGOS also accurately predicts long-term GBS disability scores, which were important secondary endpoints in previous trials.

In these cases, it is unknown what would be the best option: Age, preceding diarrhea, and MRC sumscore in multivariable analysis were also independently associated with another endpoint that is frequently used in therapeutic trials in GBS: Serum albumin level predicts initial intravenous immunoglobulin treatment failure in Kawasaki disease.

Expected spleen size Provides upper limit of normal for spleen length and volume by ultrasound relative to body height and gender. S21—S24 [ PubMed ]. Among other issues that need attention already early in the course of disease are erxsmus for deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and hemodynamic monitoring otcome other symptoms of autonomic dysfunctionpain management, management of possible bladder and bowel dysfunction, psychosocial support and rehabilitation.

Subsequent Cox proportional hazards regression analysis was used to correct for a possible age effect. Clinical condition of the patients during the trials was monitored using the Medical Research Council MRC sum score, ranging from 0 tetraparalysis to scalf normal strengthand by the GBS disability scale, ranging from 0 healthy to 6 deceased.

Potential prognostic factors of outcome erawmus 4 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months after inclusion were first analyzed in the derivation cohort by univariable logistic regression analysis.

Nadir is typically reached within a number of days or weeks, followed by a eradmus that is generally much slower and often incomplete. RutsMD, P. Our findings should now be validated in prospective studies, preferably with greater numbers of patients.

Potential predictors of poor outcome unable to walk unaided were considered in univariable and multivariable logistic regression models.
