This study is currently running in The Netherlands. First, the mEGOS model can be applied already in the first week of admission, when treatment is considered to be most effective.

Controlled trial prednisolone in acute polyneuropathy.

Early recognition of poor prognosis in Guillain-Barré syndrome

The diagnosis of GBS is often straightforward, especially when weakness is preceded with an infection within 1—3 weeks from onset box 1. Age Influences Serum Outcpme Levels.

Clinical condition of the patients during the trials was monitored using the Medical Research Council MRC sum score, ranging from 0 tetraparalysis to 60 normal strengthand by the GBS disability scale, ranging from 0 healthy to 6 deceased.

Based on these predictors, a model was constructed which proved to be valid in an independent cohort of patients with GBS.

N Engl J Med ; Hopefully outocme and other studies will further help to improve the understanding and especially the outcome in patients with GBS. Potential predictors of poor outcome unable to walk unaided were considered in univariable and multivariable logistic regression models.

All patients provided written informed consent after approval by the institutional review board of Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam.

For purposes of clinical practice, the measurement of such biomarkers should preferably be straightforward and accurate and align with routine diagnostic procedures. New therapies and treatment modalities for GBS may not further improve outcome in patients who already recover sufficiently after standard treatment. Table 2 Multivariable analysis of main predictors of poor outcome, defined as being unable to walk at 4 weeks after hospital admission and as no improvement on the GBS disability score in the first 4 weeks after admission.


Wilkins’ Echo Score MS: D, Scatterplot showing the correlation between the albumin and IgG levels at 2 weeks after treatment. Standard protocol approvals, registrations, and patient consents. To further move on with the criteria for GBS, it especially would be helpful to have access to new carefully prospectively gathered data on a large group of well-described and followed GBS patients.

After 3 months, serum albumin levels returned to reference range values in all patients except in 2 2. Serum albumin level predicts initial intravenous immunoglobulin treatment failure in Kawasaki disease.

The model was constructed based on the multivariable logistic regression coefficients in the derivation dataset. Prognostic biomarkers may further improve those models in the future. Some of these GBS patients may even have several episodes of deterioration.


Modified Erasmus GBS Outcome Score (EGOS) at day 7 of admission

Before, but more evidently 2 weeks after, the start of IVIG treatment, serum albumin levels were significantly decreased, and low serum albumin levels were associated with a poorer clinical outcome.

In addition, this model can be used for covariate adjustment, which is a powerful tool in heterogeneous patient populations to estimate the effect of treatment in individuals and to increase the statistical power of therapeutic trials. Fatigue after GBS is an important problem. In the validation cohort, none of the patients died in the first week of follow-up. The model can be used at hospital admission and at day 7 of admission, the latter having a better predictive ability for the 3 endpoints; the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve AUC is 0.

Best Pract Res Clin Anaesthesiol. In our analyses regarding the prognostic models, we did not address the potential problem of overfitting, and no scaoe cohort of patients was available to validate our findings. Albumin levels were determined by routine diagnostic turbidimetry and related to demographics and clinical course during a follow-up of 6 months.

Additionally, many patients have pain, fatigue or other residual complaints that may persist for months or years.
