Answer

In the 2012 ACR-recommended RA disease activity measures, the following indicate disease remission cutoffs for patient-driven composite tools (all 3 scales, 0-10) [2] :

  • PAS and PAS-II – Remission, 0.00-0.25

  • RAPID-3 – Remission, 0-1.0

For the CDAI patient and provider composite tool (scale, 0-76), remission is indicated by a measurement of 2.8 or less. [2]
