OBJECTIVES To evaluate possible predictors of remission, normalized physical function, and work change in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS We determined in our early RA cohort the proportion of patients in remission [Disease Activity Score (DAS28)<2.6], with normalized function [Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) = 0], and with changed working situation since disease onset. Candidate predictors of remission, normalized function, and work change were studied by subgroup comparison and… CONTINUE READING
