AIM The aim of the study was to compare the differences between patient global disease activity (PtGDA) and physician global disease activity (PhGDA) score within and across 13 countries in the METEOR (Measurement of Efficacy of Treatment in the "Era of Outcome" in Rheumatology) database. METHODS Data from METEOR were used to compare PtGDA and PhGDA,(More)
The objectives of this study were to compare the patient's (PtGDA) and physician's (PhGDA) assessment of global disease activity and to identify factors that might influence these differences as well as factors that may influence the patient's and the physician's scores separately.

To investigate the association between intra-articular (IA) large joint corticosteroid injections and clinical outcomes in patients with recent onset rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We compared pain (visual analog scale (VAS)), the Disease Activity Score (44 joints) (DAS), and swollen and tender joint counts before and after IA injection. Using linear mixed(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known on how well targeted treatment, for instance targeting towards low DAS, is implemented in clinical practice. Our aim was to evaluate treatment adjustments in response to DAS in RA patients in clinical practice. METHODS We used data from one referral centre, multiple rheumatologists, from the METEOR database. Generalized(More)
