Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ); FM severity was evaluated by the Turkish version of the FIQ (31).
765 60 [degrees] Knee flexion VAS: visual analogue scale, 6MWD: 6-min walking distance, BBS: Berg balance scale, FIQ: fibromyalgia impact questionnaire
r: spearman's correlation coefficient p value is significant when <0.
In total, the trial enrolled 103 patients across 18 centres in the UK and Australia with the primary study endpoint being the difference in the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ) score, between active and placebo, after 4 weeks of treatment.
Women on duloxetine scored significantly better compared with those taking placebo on both on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ) total score and on the FIQ pain score.
The improvements were evaluated by patient and physician's global assessments, fibromyalgia impact questionnaire
, 6-minute walking test, chair test, Nottingham Health Profile, and BDI.
The subjects were evaluated by the Temperament and Character Inventory, the 20-item Toronto Alexithymia Scale, Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
, Beck Depression Scale, and sociodemographic data form.
The two studies--a 14-week double-blind placebo-controlled study and a 6-month randomized withdrawal study--found that treatment was associated with a reduction in pain by visual analog scale and improvements based on a patient global assessment and on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
The POV was a composite of changes from baseline in three co-primary, self-report measures: Pain Visual Analog Scale [PVAS], captured with electronic diaries; Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
[FIQ]; and Patient Global Assessment [PGA].
Disease severity was determined with the Turkish version of the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ), the validity and reliability of which were previously shown (16,17).
Secondary outcome measures included remaining BPI pain and interference scores, Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ), the tender point pain threshold and tender point number, Clinical Global Impression of Severity (CGI-Severity), Patient Global Impression of Improvement (PGI-Improvement), and the 17-item Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression.
The quality of life assessment was performed using the validated Turkish version of the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ), which was developed by Burkhardt et al.
The primary efficacy measure was a 25 percent or greater reduction in scores on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire
(FIQ) from randomization to end of treatment and included the Clinical Global Impression (CGI)-Improvement (I) and Severity (S) measures and the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) for pain.
