ALSFRS-R: Quantifying disease progression in ALS Clinical Trials
The ALSFRS-R is a validated, questionnaire-based instrument that3
How does the ALSFRS-R help determine disability progression?
Each aspect of function is scored from 4 (normal) to 0 (no ability). The maximum total score is 48, and the minimum total score is 0.
Each ALSFRS-R Score Is unique to the patient
For example, while Patient A primarily experiences symptoms of the bulbar and cervical regions, Patient B experiences symptoms of the lumbar region and exhibits respiratory complications. Both have ALSFRS-R scores of 40.
