Abstract
Motor disability in multiple sclerosis is often modeled using experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and assessed using the clinical score (CS), an observer-dependent tool that can lead to potential bias. The Advanced Dynamic Weight Bearing (ADWB) system was evaluated as an observer-independent measurement of EAE symptoms. ADWB detected weight shifts onto the front paws as mice develop hindlimb motor disability. CS and ADWB were strongly correlated, indicated that these measures are comparable and suggesting that ADWB may be an appropriate observer-independent tool for the assessment of EAE progression.
