Table 3 Multivariable associations of pressure-pain detection thresholds (PPTs) with DAS28 components

From: A cross-sectional study of pain sensitivity, disease-activity assessment, mental health, and fibromyalgia status in rheumatoid arthritis

DAS28 component Medial knee Tibia Sternum
β P β P β P
Patient-reported TJC −0.37 0.030 −0.42 0.017 −0.29 0.092
VAS-GH −0.33 0.047 −0.22 0.195 −0.38 0.029
Observed SJC −0.08 0.539 −0.03 0.842 −0.05 0.719
ESR −0.07 0.614 −0.22 0.134 −0.10 0.950
  1. Standardized β values and P values (not corrected for multiple comparisons) are shown for three regression models comparing the influence of DAS28 components on PPT. Multiple linear regression models with log-transformed PPT at each testing site as dependent variable, and TJC, VAS-GH, SJC, ESR, age, and gender as predictor variables.
