Johansen N et al. Effect of nutritional support on clinical outcome in patients at nutritional risk. Clin Nutr 2004;23:539-550.
Protein and energy intake of patients at nutritional risk (NRS 2002) was increased in the intervention group. Length of stay (LOS) was shorter in the intervention group among patients with complications.

Raslan et al. Complementarity of Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) and Nutritional Risk Screening 2002 (NRS 2002) for predicting poor clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients. Clin Nutr (e-pub ahead of printing) 2010.
Patients who were both NRS+ and SGA C had higher rates of complicarions than patients who were NRS+ or SGA C only.
The concurrent application of SGA in NRS+ patients might enhance the ability to predict poor clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients.

Guo et al. Screening of the nutritional risk of patients with gastric carcinoma before operation by NRS 2002 and its relationship with postoperative results. J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2010;25:800-3.
Preoperative nutrition score NRS 2002 >= 3 predicted more postoperative complications and longer length of hospital stay.

Drescher et al. Comparison of two malnutrition risk screening methods (MNA and NRS 2002) and their association with markers of protein malnutrition in geriatric hospitalized patients. Eur J Clin Nutr 2010;64:887-93.
Serum prealbumin and retinol-binding protein concentrations were inversely associated with the severity of malnutrition as indicated by the NRS (P=0.06 and <0.01, respectively).
The NRS seems to be superior compared with the MNA and serum proteins in identifying elderly patients at risk of malnutrition during acute intercurrent illness.

Korfali et al. Nutritional risk of hospitalized patients in Turkey. Clin Nutr 2009;28:533-7.
Thirty-four hospitals from 19 cities contributed data from 29,139 patients. Only 52% of patients with nutritional risk received nutritional support.

Schiesser et al. Assessment of a novel screening score for nutritional risk in predicting complications in gastro-intestinal surgery. Clin Nutr 2008;27:565-70.
Nutritional risk screening using the NRS 2002 strongly predicts the incidence and severity of complications after surgery.

Sorensen al. EuroOOPS: an international, multicentre study to implement nutritional risk screening and evaluate clinical outcome. Clin Nutr 2008;27:340-9.
Of the 5,051 study patients, 32.6% were defined as 'at-risk' by NRS-2002. 'At-risk' patients had more complications, higher mortality and longer lengths of stay than 'not at-risk' patients and these variables were significantly related to components of NRS-2002, also when adjusted for confounders.

Matos et al. Handgrip strength as a hospital admission nutritional risk screening method. Eur J Clin Nutr 2007;61:1128-35.
Patients identified as undernourished by NRS-2002 (37.9%) were older, shorter and lighter, with a lower functional capacity, a longer length of stay and a lower HGS (P<0.001). When comparing patients with lower HGS (first quartile) with those with the highest HGS (fourth quartile), this parameter revealed good sensitivity (86.7%) and specificity (70.2%) and a k=0.56.
