  1. Data are given as means ± standard deviations. Only for the radiographic axial spondylarthritis (r-axSpA) patients were data on disease durations, CRP levels, and functional scores, i.e., Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity and Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Function Indices (BASDAI and BASFI), available. na not available; CRP C-reactive protein, normal range 0–0.5 mg/dL; bDMARD biological disease-modifying drug
