Correlations between BASDAI
scores and MMP-3, MMP-9, TIMP-1, ESR, and CRP were demonstrated with the Spearman's rank correlation test.

is a self-administered questionnaire consisting of six questions relating to five major symptoms including fatigue, spinal pain, joint pain/swelling, areas of localized tenderness, and morning stiffness.
The Friedman analysis (Wilcoxon test with Bonferroni correction as post hoc) was performed using the non-normal distribution for the BASDAI
, CRP, and ESR values for the patient group.
This decrease continued up to 72 months for the BASDAI
and BASFI, and up to 48 months for the BASMI.
18) also detected that CIMT did not show any association with BASDAI
in AS patients.
The BASMI and BASDAI
scores of the patients according to the predictors are shown on Table 2.
Patients with BASDAI
scores of four and over in this study were found to demonstrate a higher rate of involvement of their hips by AS.
In addition, when the category I and category II were compared (Table 5), the BASDAI
scores (p < 0.
In addition, the relationship between the BASDAI
score and ESR (p < 0.
Univariate and multivariate regression models were employed to correlate the pack-years of smoking with the BASDAI
, ASQoL, and BASMI.
