a Correlations between baseline CXCL10 + 13, CXCL10, CXCL13 and change in DAS28 at 14 weeks after TNF inhibitor therapy. Baseline CXCL10 + 13 (r = 0.42, p = 0.03) and CXCL13 (r = 0.54, p = 0.003) were correlated with change in DAS28 at 14 weeks. The associations between chemokine levels and change in DAS28 were assessed using Spearman correlation. b Predictive ability of CXCL10 + 13 for the response to TNF inhibitor therapy at 14 weeks. Area under the curve (AUC) in ROC curve analysis is 0.83
