Development of a brief ataxia rating scale (BARS) based on a modified form of the ICARS.

Also, despite the fact that for MICONOS disease duration was derived from age at diagnosis and thus might underestimate disease duration, the rate was comparable with the other centres.

We also show the influence of GAA triplet repeat length both on age of onset and predicted rate of progression or disease severity. Physiopedia articles are best used to find the original sources of information see the references list at the bottom of the article. A potential drawback of such rearrangement would be the fact that the posture and gait disturbances subscale would become disproportionally heavy compared with the remaining subscales.

The PG subscale also seemed to because correlational methods cannot easily separate as- perform well, although results suggest its measurement sociation from dependency. However, the magnitude of item— suggesting the subscales measured related but different own-subscale to item— other-subscale differences varied constructs. To test for internal consistency, correlations of lcars within subscales and also between subscales were calculated using standard least squares linear regression.
