Figure 1

Absolute change of IgM-RF and ACPA compared with the absolute change of DAS28, HAQ and SHS. The x-axes of a, c and f represent change in anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) levels in the first year. The x-axes of b, d and e represent the change in IgM-rheumatoid factor (RF) levels in the first year. Negative numbers indicate a decrease in levels whereas a positive number indicates an increase in levels. The Y-axes of a and b represent the change in the Disease Activity Score on 28 joints (DAS28) in the first year. The Y-axes of c and d represent the change in the Health Assessment Score (HAQ) in the first year. The Y-axes of e and f represent the change in the Sharp/van der Heijde Score (SHS) in the first year. Negative numbers indicate a decrease in the score and a positive number an increase, though for the SHS only an increase in score is possible.
