OBJECTIVE This study was aimed at comparing high sensitivity C reactive protein (hsCRP) measurement with routine C reactive protein (CRP) evaluation as disease activity parameters in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nrSpA). METHODS A total of 269 patients (153 with AS and 116 with nrSpA) were included… CONTINUE READING
