The authors have developed an MG activities of daily living (ADL) profile (MG-ADL)-a simple eight-question survey of MG symptoms. In 254 consecutive encounters with established MG patients, the authors compared scores from the MG-ADL to the quantitative MG score (QMG)-a standardized, reliable scale used in clinical trials. The mean MG-ADL score was 4.89 ± 3.63. The mean QMG score was 10.80 ± 5.70. Pearson's correlation coefficient was 0.583 (p < 0.001). The MG-ADL is an easy-to-administer survey of MG that correlates well with the QMG and can serve as a secondary efficacy measurement in clinical trials.
