Table 3 Agreement of patient defined remission with remission according to the ACR-EULAR definitions using the traditional evaluator derived joint counts (REF) ('gold standard').

From: Value of self-performed joint counts in rheumatoid arthritis patients near remission

  Boolean based without CRP Boolean based with CRP Index based CDAI* Index based SDAI*

Patients in REM N = 25 N = 34 N = 22 N = 28 N = 30 37 32 37
Patients not in REM n = 171 N = 175 N = 177 N = 181 N = 147 172 164 172
