The PSP-CDS was developed to assess clinical deficits in patients with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). The scale measures severity of deficits in seven patient-relevant clinical domains: Akinesia-rigidity, Bradyphrenia, Communication, Dysphagia, Eye movements, Finger dexterity, and Gait & balance; each scored from 0 to 3.
With good sensitivity to change and well-defined clinical domains, the PSP-CDS is a valid and reliable scale that can be easily applied to a broad spectrum of PSP phenotypes equally.
This scale is expected to be useful for clinical care and research involving PSP, including observational and therapeutic trials relating to hallmark and variant PSP phenotypes.
