Answer

A study from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine established a patient-reported outcome measure (Strep-PRO) for assessing symptoms of group A Streptococcus pharyngitis from the child's point of view. [26] Preliminary data suggest that the scale effectively measures pain and overall functional status and support the use of Strep-PRO as a measure of outcome in future clinical trials.
