  1. Complete joint remission refers to the situation with no joint activity by the 32-joint count (32JC-), while incomplete remission refers to patients with no joint activity by the 28, but active joints by the 32-joint scale (28JC-/32JC+). DAS28, disease activity score based on 28 joints; SDAI, simplified disease activity index; VAS, visual analog scale.
