Twenty-two undergraduate students and three graduate students from MU operated MUPS fixed instruments.
We greatly appreciate the participation of a large number of students, volunteers, facilities managers, and staff for MIPS, MUPS, DOWs, and UWKA, and weather forecasters from the Buffalo and Binghamton NOAA/NWS Forecast Offices.

A proposed classification, medically unexplained symptoms spectrum disorder, attempts to categorize patients with MUPS based on severity and duration of symptoms, as well as medical and/or psychiatric comorbidities (Table).
Young women (age 16 to 25) are more likely to receive an MUPS diagnosis than men or older individuals.
Several studies have shown an association with childhood parental ill health and development of MUPS, but the exact nature of "ill health" was not clearly defined.
Approximately 60% of patients with MUPS have a comorbid non-somatoform DSM-IV-TR diagnosis.
The estimated prevalence of somatoform disorder in patients with MUPS is approximately 4%, which is higher than in the general population (.
