Univariate logistic regression revealed that vitamin D deficiency was associated with BASDAI, spVAS, ESR, and CRP, but not BASFI
Additionally, there were no statistically significant differences in the other indexes (BASDAI, BASFI
, and ASDAS) between these two groups (data not shown).
ve BASDAI puanlari ortalamasi sirasiyla 2,13[+ or -]1,30 (min=0,20, max=6,90) ve 2,07[+ or -]1,90 (min=0,50, max=5,30) olarak bulunmustur.
Baseline, week 2 and week 8 values of VAS at rest and during movements, morning stiffness, patient global assessment (PGA), BASDAI, BASFI
, and ASQoL scores were compared between the two groups and no statistically significant differences were found (p>0.
A Pearson correlation analysis (r: Pearson coefficient) was performed between the disease specific instruments (BASDAI, BASFI
, BAS-G, BASMI) and the items in the SF-36.
6-2 mg/dL, and greater than 2 mg/dL), and BASFI
The group of patients with BASDAI scores above 4 correlated with greater pain scores (assessed with a 0-10 cm VAS composite score), higher BASFI
scores (worse functioning) and poorer quality of life scores compared to those AS patients with a BASDAI below 4.
Desenlaces secundarios incluyeron cambios en BASDAI, BASFI
, BASMI y la proporcion de pacientes que alcanzo una respuesta de 40% en el ASAS.
A statistically significant correlation was also found between the fecal calprotectin level and some clinical and laboratory findings, and anthropometric parameters (BASDAI, BASFI
, CRP, ESR, chest expansion, hand-ground distance, Schober test).
At weeks 24 and 48 mean BASDAI decreased by 45,1% (p=0,007) and by 52,1% (p=0,01), mean BASFI
decreased by 38,2% (p=0,007) and by 52,3% (p=0.
is a 10-question, patient self-assessment instrument consisting of 8 specific questions regarding physical function in AS and 2 questions reflecting the patient's ability to cope with everyday life.
Validated Persian version of BASFI
(from 0: performed without difficulty to 10: impossible to perform), BASDAI (from 0: no activity to 10: maximum activity) and ASQoL (from 0: the best quality to 18: the worst quality) were used.
