Abstract

A considerable proportion of children with polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (polyJIA) experience active disease into adulthood.1 However, there is no validated disease activity measure for adults with polyJIA, and they are often assessed using the disease activity score 28 (DAS28). DAS28 is validated in adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and determines qualification for biological drugs in the UK and other countries.2 ,3 In contrast to the juvenile arthritis disease activity score (JADAS),4 DAS28 does not fully evaluate the pattern of joint involvement often observed in polyJIA. In this study, we compared DAS28 with JADAS-10 in adolescents and adults with polyJIA.
