Clinical and functional outcomes were assessed using the DAS28 and the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI), which is a measure of a patient's physical function.
The investigators evaluated multiple potential clinical indicators of progression, including baseline Sharp score, baseline levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), answers to the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), swollen joint count, disease duration, anticyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibody status, gender, rheumatoid factor (RF) status, and smoking history.
Annual questionnaires were given, asking both groups to report running and exercise frequency, BMI, and disability as assessed by the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index, which scores from zero (no difficulty) to three (unable to perform).
To the Editor: The Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) is widely used for measuring functioning in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), since it is a better predictor of future morbidity, mortality and work disability than other disease outcome variables.
