baseline SF
Explanation:
SF = short form. From what I could tell this is an acronym that is used in many languages.

This is a survey of general health conditions, such as:

1) limitations in physical activities because of health problems; 2) limitations in social activities because of physical or emotional problems; 3) limitations in usual role activities because of physical health problems; 4) bodily pain; 5) general mental health (psychological distress and well-being); 6) limitations in usual role activities because of emotional problems; 7) vitality (energy and fatigue); and 8) general health perceptions.

From another website (I lost the URL):

The validated instrument SF-36 was used to measure QOL burden at baseline, throughout treatment/follow-up and at the end of follow-up (EOF). Baseline SF-36 scores were compared to the age-and gender-matched US norms and the mean changes in SF-36 before and after treatment were described in the context of virologic remission at EOF.
