Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is believed to be highly prevalent today because of recent increases in life expectancy and body mass index (BMI), but this assumption has not been tested using long-term historical or evolutionary data. We analyzed long-term trends in knee OA prevalence in the United States using cadaver-derived skeletons of people aged ≥50 y whose BMI at death was documented and who lived during the early industrial era (1800s to early 1900s; n = 1,581) and the modern postindustrial er...

Objective To compare patients with a primary diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA) versus rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for scores on a patient self-report MDHAQ/RAPID3 (Multidimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire/Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3), and for physician global assessment (DOCGL). Methods All patients with all diagnoses complete an MDHAQ/RAPID3 at all routine rheumatology visits in the waiting area before seeing a rheumatologist at four sites, one in Australia and three in the ...

Abstract Objectives The EULAR Outcome Measures Library (OML) is a freely available database of validated patient-reported outcomes (PROs). The aim of this study was to provide a comprehensive review of validated PROs specifically developed for systemic sclerosis (SSc) to feed the EULAR OML. Methods A sensitive search was developed in Medline and Embase to identify all validation studies, cohort studies, reviews, or meta-analyses in which the objective were the development or validation of specif...

OBJECTIVE: To define a minimum Standard Set of outcome measures and case-mix factors for monitoring, comparing, and improving healthcare for patients with clinically diagnosed hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA) with a focus on defining the outcomes that matter most to patients. METHODS: An international Working Group (WG) of patients, arthroplasty register experts, orthopedic surgeons, primary care physicians, rheumatologists, and physiotherapists representing 10 countries was assembled to review e...

Objective To evaluate the responsiveness of a simple routine assessment of patient index data (RAPID3)-like index that includes only 3 patient self-report measures (physical function, pain and patient global estimate) compared to that of traditional composite indices to assess change in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (Ax-SpA). Methods Devenir des Spondylarthropathies Indifferenciees Recentes (DESIR) is a prospective cohort of patients with inflammatory back pain suggestive of Ax-SpA. The ...

The objective of this study was to determine health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) as measured by the “routine assessment of patient index data 3” (RAPID3) and whether RAPID3 is correlated with disease activity as determined by the Birmingham Vasculitis Activity Score (BVAS). Data from patients at an academic institution vasculitis clinic seen between Jan 2010 and Jan 2012 were collected using chart review. BVAS and RAPID3 scores were calculated...

Abstract To characterise associations of fatigue with other variables within a multidimensional health assessment questionnaire (MDHAQ) in routine care of patients with different rheumatic diagnoses. All patients complete MDHAQ, which includes fatigue on a 0-10 visual analogue scale (VAS), and routine assessment of patient index data (RAPID3), a composite of function, pain, and patient global. Physicians complete a RheuMetric checklist which includes 4 VAS for overall global status (DOCGL), infl...

Quantitative assessment of patients with rheumatic diseases requires a pooled index of several measures,1 as no single measure can serve as a “gold standard” for all individual patients.2 Over the last 3 decades, many disease-specific self-report questionnaires have been developed to assess different rheumatic diseases.2 In patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), disease-specific indices include the Bath AS Disease Activity Index (BASDAI),3 Bath AS Functional Index (BASFI),4 AS Disease Activi...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common autoimmune rheumatic disease, in which an epigenetic implication in the disease etiopathogenesis has been noted. Here in this meta-analysis, we attempted to investigate the pooled association of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T and A1298C polymorphisms and susceptibility to RA risk. A systematic search was performed in the main databases, including MEDLINE and Scopus to search for studies assessing the association between MTHFR g...
Studien deuten darauf hin, dass die Krankheitslast bei Arthrose so gros wie bei rheumatoider Arthritis (RA) ist. Die Beschwerden der Patienten werden im medizinischen Alltag oftmals mit unterschiedlichen Instrumenten abgefragt, etwa dem Western Ontario and McMaster Universities OA Index bei Arthrose und dem Multidimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MDHAQ) bei RA. Eine aktuelle Studie untersucht die Krankheitslast von Arthrose- und RA-Patienten im Verlauf mit dem MDHAQ.
Summary Over the past year many studies and clinical trials have been published in the osteoarthritis (OA) field. This review is based on systematic literature review covering the period May 1st, 2018 to April 19th, 2019; the final selection of articles was subjective. Specifically those articles considered to be presenting novel insights and of potential importance for clinical practice, are discussed. Further evidence has emerged that OA is a serious disease with increasing impact worldwide. O...
