Interstitial lung disease (ILD) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) are the leading causes of death in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Although the six-minute walk test (6MWT) is used for evaluating ILD and PAH, no data are available on the evolution of the six-minute walk distance (6MWD) in SSc patients without ILD and PAH and whether the baseline 6MWD could serve as individual reference value for the management of those who will develop PAH or ILD.

Although the six-minute walk test (6MWT) is widely used as a measure of exercise capacity, it may not be applicable in some settings and populations. This issue has led to increased use of the two-min...
Walk tests are commonly used to evaluate walking ability in frail older adults with dementia but their psychometric evidence in this population is lacking.
The purposes of this study were to document longitudinal developmental trajectories in 6-minute walk test (6MWT) distances and to develop age-specific reference percentiles for children across differe...
The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is used within clinical and research settings to assess gait performance across a variety of conditions and populations. Commonly, the test is used to identify specific...
To examine the occurrence of adverse events in patients undergoing assessment for pulmonary rehabilitation when a 6-minute walk test (6MWT) continues despite desaturation below 80%.
Primary Objectives 1. To assess the correlation of the pre-operative six-minute walk test results with that of the gold standard exercise test with analysis of gas exchange and mea...
This study evaluates the determinants of mobility, measured by the 6-minute walk test, and its correlation with quality of life in near elderly patients.
The aim of this study is to compare oxygen desaturation during two tests: the 6 minute walk test and the 3 minute step test, for COPD patients.
The purpose of this research study is to determine the effect of the environment on six-minute walk test performance in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease due to alpha-...
The purpose of this study is to verify the applicability Six minutes walk test and Shuttle walk test in assessing functional capacity in patients with Eisenmenger Syndrome. Patients will u...
A measure of endurance tests that show how far and fast an individual can walk without stopping within a certain period of time.

Longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-95 school year. The Add Health cohort has been followed into young adulthood. (from http://www.cpc.unc.edu/projects/addhealth accessed 08/2012)
Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
