abstract

  • Patients with RA experienced flares more often when noted to be in higher disease activity states than when in remission and reported changes in disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs or biologics more frequently when flares were of longer duration. There is a need to prospectively study symptom intensity and duration of flare in relation to disease activity and consider self-management strategies in the development of a measure of flare.
