In memoriam of Dr Ted Burns, who was an essential contributor to the initiation and design of MGBase.
Dr Stephen Reddel writes, Ted was a member of the MGBase committee that determined the field data sets, and he designed the Myasthenia Gravis Composite (MGC) that is the key outcome measure for MGBase, and was also instrumental in the MG Quality of Life scores (MG-QOL(-R)). Ted is sorely missed. He was a highly significant neurologist in MG and probably the most significant from the point of view of patient care and patient associations.
A truly great bloke too.
Ted was a very committed human being with a particular passion for making MG research relevant to patients, and was a medical advisor to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America.
