Table 2 PedsQL MFS Scores in PHIV+ and HIV-

From: Fatigue in children and adolescents perinatally infected with human immunodeficiency virus: an observational study

  PHIV+ (n = 14) HIV- (n = 14) Ba (95% CI) Adjusted Bab (95% CI)
Fatigue total 78.57 ± 11.23 82.54 ± 12.93 −3.968 (− 12.9 to 5.0) −4.520 (− 14.1 to 5.1)
General fatigue 85.71 ± 8.91 86.00 ± 12.30 −0.298 (− 8.3 to 7.7) − 0.870 (− 9.5 to 7.7)
Sleep/rest fatigue 79.17 ± 16.59 81.85 ± 19.31 −2.679 (− 15.9 to 10.6) −4.502 (− 15.4 to 6.4)
Cognitive fatigue 70.83 ± 20.15 79.76 ± 16.57 −8.929 (− 22.6 to 4.7) −8.187 (− 22.9 to 6.5)
  1. Fatigue scores are reported as mean ± SD. aB represents mean difference between PHIV+ and the comparison group. bAdjusted for age and sex. Lower scores indicate more fatigue; a negative B therefore means more fatigue in PHIV+ compared to HIV-.
