Objective The 1987 American College of Rheumatology (ACR; formerly the American Rheumatism Association) classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been criticised for their lack of sensitivity in early disease. This work was undertaken to develop new classification criteria for RA. Methods A joint working group from the ACR and the European League Against Rheumatism developed, in three phases, a new approach to classifying RA. The work focused on identifying, among patients…

TLDR
This new classification system redefines the current paradigm of RA by focusing on features at earlier stages of disease that are associated with persistent and/or erosive disease, rather than defining the disease by its late-stage features.
The new European League Against Rheumatism/American College of Rheumatology diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis: how are they performing?
TLDR
The goal of earlier classification of RA seems to be met with the new criteria, but exclusion of other diagnoses is essential, and indiscriminate use of these classification criteria as a diagnostic tool carries the risk of overtreatment.
The 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis: Methodological Report Phase I
Objective To apply a data-driven approach to investigate, in patients newly presenting with undifferentiated inflammatory synovitis, key variables that discriminate the subset of patients at
How Do We Classify Rheumatoid Arthritis in Established Disease — Can We Apply the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism Classification Criteria?
The creation of the 2010 American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis (RA; Figure 1)1 sought to address some of
How do we classify rheumatoid arthritis in established disease--can we apply the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria?
TLDR
The creation of the 2010 ACR/EULAR classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis sought to address some of the criticisms of the previous ACR criteria set published in 1987 — namely that they were insensitive, particularly early in the disease course.
Classification of rheumatoid arthritis: comparison of the 1987 American College of Rheumatology criteria and the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism criteria.
TLDR
Compared with the 1987 criteria, the 2010 criteria classify more patients with RA and at an earlier phase of the disease and the discriminative ability of the2010 criteria is acceptable.
The clinical picture of rheumatoid arthritis according to the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism criteria: is this still the same disease?
TLDR
Use of the 2010 ACR/EULAR criteria clearly allows earlier diagnosis of RA, although the clinical picture is slightly different on the group level, and RA may be falsely diagnosed in some patients with self-limiting disease.
The 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis: Phase 2 methodological report.
TLDR
The expert panel agreed that the new classification criteria should be applied to individuals with undifferentiated inflammatory arthritis in whom at least 1 joint is deemed by an expert assessor to be swollen, indicating definite synovitis.
Validation of the 2010 American College of Rheumatology/ European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis with special emphasis on the role of autoantibodies
TLDR
The 2010 ACR/EULAR classification criteria for RA is validated with respect to its construct validity and the role of autoantibodies within the criteria, which helps identify patients with IP at increased risk of mortality, disability, disease severity and radiographic damage.
Utility of the new rheumatoid arthritis 2010 ACR/EULAR classification criteria in routine clinical care
TLDR
The first study to examine the new 2010 ACR/EULAR RA criteria among consecutive patients seen in routine care found the criteria to have low specificity, and therefore incorrectly label those as having RA when, in fact, they may have a different type of inflammatory arthritis.

Diagnosis of Chronic Gout: Evaluating the American College of Rheumatology Proposal, European League Against Rheumatism Recommendations, and Clinical Judgment
TLDR
Current or past history of ≥ 4/8 CGD parameters is highly suggestive of chronic gout, and clinical and paraclinical data included in the European League Against Rheumatism and American College of Rheumatology proposed criteria for diagnosis of gout are identified.

The revised criteria for the classification of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were formulated from a computerized analysis of 262 contemporary, consecutively studied patients with RA and 262 control
Patterns of radiological progression in early rheumatoid arthritis: results of an 8 year prospective study.
TLDR
A large proportion of joints become eroded in the first 2 years of early RA, and the subsequent course of radiological progression is highly variable and cannot be easily explained by any single model.
The prognostic value of baseline erosions in undifferentiated arthritis
TLDR
Presence of ≥2 erosive joints at baseline in UA patients gives a risk for RA development of 53% and for persistent disease of 68%, indicating that erosions in UA are not always predictive for unfavorable disease outcomes.
