abstract

  • Most patients in the largest sJIA cohort reported to date had low disease activity. Practice patterns for choice of biologic agents appeared to change over the study period. Nearly one-third had persistent arthritis without systemic symptoms > 2 years after onset. African Americans were associated with worse disease activity. Strategies are needed to improve outcomes in subgroups with poor prognosis.
