- To determine the cutoff value of PsAID corresponding to flare [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
For flare, the gold standard will be decision of treatment intensification. The primary outcome will be to determine the cutoff value of PsAID corresponding flare.
The PsAID is a questionnaire (paper CRF) that can be used to calculate a score reflecting the impact of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) from the patients' perspective. (Gossec L et al., A patient-derived and patient-reported outcome measure for assessing psoriatic arthritis: elaboration and preliminary validation of the Psoriatic Arthritis Impact of Disease (PsAID) questionnaire, a 13-country EULAR initiative. Ann Rheum Dis. 2014;73(6):1012-9).
- To determine the cutoff value of PsAID corresponding to remission [ Time Frame: 6 months ]For remission, the gold standard will be Minimal Disease Activity. The primary outcome will be to determine the cutoff value of PsAID corresponding to remission. Patients are classified as achieving Minimal Disease Activity if they fulfill 5 of 7 outcome measures: tender joint count ≤1; swollen joint count ≤1; psoriasis activity and severity index ≤1 or body surface area ≤3; patient pain visual analog scale (VAS) score of ≤15; patient global disease activity VAS score of ≤20; Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) score ≤0.5; and tender entheseal points ≤1.
