7 K55 Arthritis Nomenclature Specific Assessment: –For RA: DAS 28 + HAQ –For AS BASFI + BASDAI –For PsA PsARC + HAQ (poly) / NRS scale (pauci)

8 PsARC : Psoriatic Arthritis Response Criteria Physician’s global assessment (0-5) Patient’s global self-assessment (0-5) Joint tenderness Joint swelling You will obtain a ‘set’ of 4 ‘results’. You will not have a ‘composite’ score

9 PsARC : Psoriatic Arthritis Response Criteria Treatment response = Improvement in at least 2 of 4 criteria –one must be joint tenderness or swelling –with no worsening in the others 1 and 2 : –improvement decrease > 1 unit –worsening increase > 1 unit 3 and 4 : –improvement decrease > 30% –worsening increase > 30 %

10 BASFI

11 DAS 28 DAS 28 = 0,56*√(TJC28)+ 0,28*√(SJC28)+ 0,7*LN(ESR)+ 0,014*VAS GA Patient
