From: Control of articular synovitis for bone and cartilage regeneration in rheumatoid arthritis

  DAS28-ESR CDAI SDAI Boolean-based
Mean (SD) maintain rate of remission, % 38.4 (38.3) 23.0 (31.5) 25.0 (32.7) 15.0 (25.7)
No. (%) of complete sustained remission 26 (15.3) 9 (5.3) 12 (7.1) 4 (2.4)
No. (%) of nearly sustained remission 39 (22.9) 29 (17.1) 27 (15.9) 18 (10.6)
No. (%) of incomplete sustained remission 43 (25.3) 42 (24.7) 47 (27.6) 36 (21.2)
No. (%) of none remission 62 (36.5) 90 (52.9) 84 (49.4) 112 (65.9)
  1. Data represent the proportions of RA patients who sustained clinical remission according to each criterion during follow-up period. Complete sustained remission was defined as maintain rate of 100%. Nearly sustained remission was defined as maintain rate of 50% or more. Incomplete sustained remission was defined as maintain rate of less than 50%. None remission was defined as maintain rate of 0%. Boolean-based is one of the ACR/EULAR remission criteria
