OBJECTIVE To measure the abilities of the continuous measures of disease activity used in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the 3 versions of the Juvenile Arthritis Disease Activity Score (JADAS; based upon 10-, 27-, and 71-joint counts) to accurately classify the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) pediatric measures of response, flare, and inactive disease in polyarticular-course juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS We conducted a secondary analysis of a randomized trial of… CONTINUE READING
