Demographic characteristics (age, gender and BMI), laboratory results, MS, VAS pain, PGA, PhGA, DAS28, HAQ, SF-36 and FIQ scores were compared among the groups.
Factors considered that can be effective on development of FMS in patients with RA (age, gender, BMI, ESR, CRP, DAS28, VAS pain, PGA, PhGA) were included in statistical analyses.
The results of the DAREA, DAS28, and BASDAI disease activity indices as well as the VA-Spain, PaGA, PhGA, and HAQ are summarized in Table 3.
When the relationship between the DAREA and the DAS28, HAQ, VAS-pain, PaGA, and PhGA was investigated, we found that it was strongest between the DAREA and DAS28 scores.
Pain has been demonstrated to be the major determinant in PtGA but not in PhGA
Event attendees Tim Geier and Bill Knudsen, both members of the PHGA, said the course and association provide a "country club" feeling without the high costs.
"The association is open to all," Knudsen, past president of the PHGA board, said.
