Circulating serum levels of MMP-3 showed a significant correlation with pain scores (30%) and mHAQ scores (40%), in the human cohort (Table 2).
Similarly, both patient groups scored lower on subjective, self-assessed physical function, measured by mHAQ and by the SF-36 physical component summary (PCS) score.

In most studies, the physical function of patients with OA and RA has been assessed by different measures, including the Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire (MHAQ), the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales (AIMS), and the Western Ontario McMaster Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC).
Pain scores, the Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire (MHAQ), and fatigue and global assessment scores were collected prior to intervention.
