Session Title: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Clinical Aspects Poster Session III
Session Type: ACR Poster Session C
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: The “Rheumatoid Arthritis Impact of Disease” (RAID)
score is a Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) that comprises seven domains of disease, that may reflect the patient’s perspective more
widely than other PROs. A cut-off corresponding to
the patient acceptable symptom state (PASS) has been defined as RAID score <=2
. This study aims: 1) to
assess the associations between the RAID and established measures used in RA
(disease activity measures and other PROs); 2) to analyse the relationship
between clinical remission and PASS by RAID.
RA patients (ACR/EULAR 2010 or ACR 1987 criteria) followed in a tertiary rheumatology
department were included in this cross-sectional study. Patient demographics
and clinical data collected were: DAS28, SDAI, CDAI and HAQ; patient and
physician global assessment (PGA and PhGA); the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the
Happiness Scale (HS) and the EuroQOL (EQ5D) score.
RAID and DAS28 (4vCRP) scores were classified according to PASS and remission
definitions (<=2 and <=2.6, respectively). We used Spearman correlation
coefficient, Qui-square and Kappa as statistic tests.
patients were included (82% females, 58.8±12.4 years and 13.0±8.6 years of
disease duration). Disease impact and activity were moderate: mean RAID=4.8±2.2
and mean DAS28(4vCRP)=2.9±1.2. RAID showed moderate
correlations with most of the established combined indices of disease activity,
with the HAQ having the highest correlation (r=0.66). Regarding other PROs,
RAID was strongly correlated with PGA (r=0.70) and moderately with the
remaining (Table 1).
Out of 50 patients in DAS28
remission, 11 had a RAID score consistent with PASS but 39 had higher scores.
Of the 51 patients not in remission, only one patient had a RAID score
consistent with PASS (Table 2). This difference of proportions was
statistically significant (X2(1)=9.684; p=0.002; Kappa=0.20).
correlates well with different PROs and moderately with disease activity
scores. Its use in clinical practice may allow a better representation of the
global impact of RA in patient’s lives.
As disease remission by DAS and
PASS by RAID are in disagreement for a considerable percentage of patients,
further research on this topic is warranted.
