What’s Inside the eBook
Multiple sclerosis trials currently rely on the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), a clinician reported outcome utilized to monitor disability changes in patients over a period of time. While this is the favored method to quantify disability, EDSS assessments are at risk for subjectivity and inter/intra-rater variability. Regardless of its common use throughout clinical research, its limitations call for a better solution.
