Table 2 Association between DAS and treatment adjustment in METEOR

From: DAS steered therapy in clinical practice; cross-sectional results from the METEOR database

  DAS > 2.4a
  ß OR (95 % CI)
Overall ordinal correlationb 0.175 1.19 (1.07–1.33)
Stable versus decreased dosec 0.259 1.30 (1.05–1.60)
Increased versus stable dosec 0.096 1.10 (0.97–1.26)
Increased versus decreased dosec 0.36 1.43 (1.17–1.74)
  1. aReference category is a DAS ≤ than 2.4
  2. bOrdinal; GEE (regression analysis). DAS > 2.4 gives higher odds to increase treatment
  3. cBinary; GEE (regression analysis)
