Karnofsky score is a subjective measure of how well the patient is doing. It is useful to track it over time, to see ups and downs in the disease process. You can join our Virtual Trial Project to help you track your Karnofsky score over time! The Karnofsky score is also sometimes used as a criteria for entrance into a clinical trial.
