Binary logistic regression analysis for the prediction of different remission statuses
DAS28 remission versus nonremission Boolean remission versus nonremission Boolean versus only DAS28 remission
OR Pvalue OR Pvalue OR Pvalue
Age 0.968 0.004 0.942 <0.0001 0.956 0.014
Baseline TJC28 0.946 0.018 0.910 0.031

Analyses were controlled for baseline levels of disease activity components: C-reactive protein (mg/dl), tender joint count out of 28 joints (TJC28), swollen joint count out of 28 joints, and patient global health. DAS28, disease activity score in 28 joints. P <0.05 indicates the association of the variable with different remission statuses. Odds ratios (ORs) explain the probability of reaching different remission statuses with higher age and baseline TJC28.
