PBA symptoms are prevalent in various neurologic conditions1

Prevalence of PBA in the US2

An estimated

19.2 MILLION

people in the US have suffered a stroke, have dementia, or have had a TBI3-5

Based on PRISM, a multicentered registry (N=5290):

Up to

38% of patients with stroke
29% of patients with dementia
52% of patients with TBI
 

had symptoms suggestive of PBA.a,b,2

aThe PRISM registry enrolled 5,290 patients with common neurologic conditions (AD: n=1799; Stroke: n=757; TBI: n=590). The presence of PBA symptoms was defined as a CNS-LS ≥13.2

bPBA symptom prevalence in the long-term care setting may differ.

How many of your patients with stroke have symptoms of PBA?

According to the American Heart Association, an estimated

6.6 MILLION

people in the US have had a stroke3


In the PRISM registry, PBA prevalence results for the stroke population (n=757) indicate that up to

38%
of your patients who have had a stroke may have symptoms suggestive of PBAa,b,2

Identify PBA in your patients with stroke

PBA symptoms are often mischaracterized as post-stroke depression or post-stroke behavioral changes.6

aThe CNS-LS was validated as a PBA screening tool in ALS and MS populations. A CNS-LS ≥13 may suggest PBA but does not confer a PBA diagnosis.7-9

bAs determined by a score ≥13 on the CNS-LS applied to population data for specific neurologic conditions.2

How many of your patients with dementia have symptoms of PBA?

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders, an estimated

7.3 MILLION

people in the US have some form of dementia4


In the PRISM registry, PBA prevalence results for the dementia population (n=1799) indicate that up to

29%
of your patients with dementia may have symptoms suggestive of PBAa,b,2

Identify PBA in your patients with dementia

PBA symptoms are often mischaracterized as behavioral disturbances or depression.10

aThe CNS-LS was validated as a PBA screening tool in ALS and MS populations. A CNS-LS ≥13 may suggest PBA but does not confer a PBA diagnosis.5-7

bAs determined by a score ≥13 on the CNS-LS applied to population data for specific neurologic conditions.2

How many of your patients with TBI have symptoms of PBA?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as

5.3 MILLION

people in the US are living with TBI-related disability5


In the PRISM registry, PBA prevalence results for the TBI population (n=590) indicate that up to

52%
of your patients with TBI may have symptoms suggestive of PBAa,b,2

Identify PBA in your patients with TBI

PBA symptoms may be mischaracterized as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), behavioral consequences of TBI, or depression, which can coexist with PBA11

aThe CNS-LS was validated as a PBA screening tool in ALS and MS populations. A CNS-LS ≥13 may suggest PBA but does not confer a PBA diagnosis.5-7
