Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / clinical study
Spanish term or phrase: VAS
This appears after the term "Escala de Evaluacion del dolor" in a clinical study for a rheumatoid arthritis drug in Argentina. The section is referring to the items that have been approved at a recent Ethics Committee meeting. Is it referring perhaps to the acronym in English for the survey? Thanks!!!

Hi Justin,

Yes, it's the English acronym as we discussed in the other thread.

I would translate this sentence as:
"Pain Assessment Scale (VAS - Visual Analogue Scale)"
