Working group OMERACT > PsA, SpA



D'Agostino MA & L Terslev  

Objective of the subgroups work

To validate elementary lesions for enthesitis

To develop a scoring system

To test sensitivity to change

What is the contribution of the subgroup work to the OMERACT work?

US as an outcome measurement instrument for PsA OMERACT group

PsA group has musculoskeletal disease activity and systemic inflammation as core domains and structural damage in the research agenda


Description of the previous work

Systematic literature has been pefromed , Delphi defining the elementary lesions has been conducted with subsequent testing of the definition in static images and patients and finally a scoring system has been proposed. This is currently being tested I 2 clinical trials


Reporting back of work done since ACR 2017

Testing the scoring in clinical trials -no results is currently available
