MDS Specific Frailty Scale

Improve prognostication with this frailty scale specific to those patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.


This MDS-specific frailty scale was derived from a prospective MDS registry and assessed its ability to add prognostic power to conventional prognostic scores in MDS. The 42 variables in the model included measurements of physical performance, co-morbidities, laboratory values, instrumental activities of daily living, quality of life and performance status. Based on 440 eligible patients, a prognostic score with five risk groups and distinct survivals ranging from 7.4 months to not yet reached (with median follow-up 20 months) was derived.
