EULAR response criteria

Print

Comparing the DAS28 from one patient on two different time points, it is possible to define improvement or response. The EULAR response criteria are defined as follows:

 

DAS28 improvement →

> 1.2

> 0.6  and  ≤ 1.2

≤ 0.6

Present DAS28↓

≤ 3.2

good response

moderate response

no response

> 3.2 and ≤ 5.1

moderate response

moderate response

no response

> 5.1

moderate response

no response

no response

 

Both the thresholds for high and low disease activity and remission and the abovementioned improvement criteria should give you a feel how to interpret your DAS28 scores.
