In our study, calprotectin was identified to be elevated in both the nr-axSpA and AS patients compared to the healthy controls and correlated well with ESR, CRP, BASDAI, ASDAS, and SPARCC indicating bone marrow edema, indicating that it is a valuable marker for inflammation signal.
Correlation between serum calprotectin and ESR (r = 0.679, p = 1 x [10.sup.-6]), CRP (r = 0.431, p = 2.06 x [10.sup.-6]), BASDAI (r = 0.481, p = 1 x [10.sup.-6]), BASFI (r = 0.154, p = 0.105), ASDAS (r = 0.378, p = 3.93 x [10.sup.-5]), GSK-[beta] (r = 0.034, p = 0.722), [beta]-catenin (r = 0.118, p = 0.215), RUNX2 (r = 0.092, p = 0.336), SPARCC (r = 0.405, p = 9.21 x [10.sup.-6]), and mSASSS (r = - 0.033, p = 0.726) in patients with nr-axSpA and AS was shown.

In accordance with the clinical results in the current study, treatment with infliximab resulted in a significant reduction of inflammatory changes of the sacroiliac joints as depicted by MRI using the SPARCC scoring system [17, 40].
A kappa value (?) showed good agreement with 0.86 for SPARCC and ?SI and with 0.85 for ADC value among interobserver.
The mean [+ or -] SD values of the active and inactive group with respect to all indices are as follows: for the active group: ADC value = 1.34 [+ or -] 0.32 x 10[sup]−3 mm [sup]2/s, ?SI (%) = 247 [+ or -] 161, SPARCC = 17.41 [+ or -] 14.8; for the inactive group, all measures were lower: ADC value = 0.9 [+ or -] 0.43 x 10[sup]−3 mm [sup]2/s, ?SI (%) = 122 [+ or -] 65, SPARCC = 3.86 [+ or -] 5.09.
Using any multivariate model, although the combination of SPARCC, ADC, and ?SI values had the highest ROC (0.878, P = 0.0601) compared with SPARCC alone, there was no statistical significance between the combination of SPARCC and ADC values with and without ?SI to differentiate active AS from inactive AS [Table 4].{Table 4}
In this study, we studied the sensitivity and specificity of SPARCC, ?SI, and ADC values which detected the activity of AS.
Demand for SPARCC's services continues even though Florida's rates of sexual assault and domestic violence have declined over the past two decades.
Nearby DeSoto County, which is also served by SPARCC, was ranked last year among the worst 10 counties in Florida for its high rate of domestic violence.
In its most recent fiscal year, SPARCC received 2,591 calls to its main crisis hotline, housed 575 individuals in its shelter and responded to hospital calls to assist victims of sexual assault 89 times.
SPARCC's executive director Jessica Hays says there's no single reason that explains the disparity between crime rates declining and calls to SPARCC increasing.
