Neurological scale

This scale was published in the Journal of Neuro-Oncology in 1990 (A report of the Medical Research Council Brain Tumour Working Party: Prognostic factors for high-grade malignant glioma: development of a prognostic index. J Neuro-Oncol 9: 47–55, 1990) Note: this publication is not available in Open Access through Europe PMC.

Permission to re-use the Neurological Scale

The article was published under the corporate authorship of The MRC Brain Tumour Working Party, and so the MRC shares ownership of the copyright with the publisher (Springer).  We are able to grant permission for re-use of this scale (including research and commercial purposes), but permission from the publisher must also be obtained. Instructions on how to do this can be found on Springer’s website. For information, the individuals involved in writing the article were SP Stenning, LS Freedman and NM Bleehen.

You must give appropriate credit (“Used with the permission of the Medical Research Council”) and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests that the MRC endorses you or your use.
