OBJECTIVE: To ascertain the incidence and prevalence of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) in Catalonia (autonomous region in northeast Spain), examined according to the currently established disease subtypes. METHODS: Before initiating the study, we conducted an educational programme on paediatric rheumatology, addressed to all general paediatricians in Catalonia. A 2-year (2004-2006), prospective, population-based study was then carried out to determine the incidence of JIA...

There has been a tremendous emphasis on the development of measures of function and HRQoL for application in JIA over the past 15 years. Of the measures that are currently available, the CHAQ and the CHQ are the most widely used, although the use of others, including the JAQQ, the Peds QL, and the QoMLQ, is growing. As evidence emerges from better longitudinal studies with these measures, it will be possible to describe patient outcomes in JIA more accurately. From the outcome studies that have been conducted to date, one can conclude that JIA is not a benign disease...

OBJECTIVE: To study the incidence rate of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and its clinical subtypes in Estonia, to follow the course of the disease in newly diagnosed patients for 2 years, and to find the frequency of human leucocyte antigens (HLA) B27, DR1 and DR4 in JIA patients. METHOD: A population-based study involving prospective registration of new cases of JIA in 1998-2000 and their clinical follow-up for 2 years. RESULTS: In 1998-2000, 162 new cases of JIA were diagnosed...

OBJECTIVE: To begin the validation process of the preliminary criteria for inactive disease (ID), clinical remission on medication (CRM), and clinical remission off medication (CR) in children with select forms of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS: We used the OMERACT filter paradigm to estimate the validity of the criteria within each of the filter's 3 components: truth, discrimination, and feasibility, in 5 categories of JIA: systemic arthritis, persistent and extended oligoarthritis, and rheumatoid factor-positive and negative polyarthritis...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic arthritis in children represents a nonhomogeneous group of diseases with unknown etiology. To classify these patients in well defined diagnostic categories, a task force of the International League Against Rheumatism proposed a new classification with precise criteria. We analyzed the new criteria in children with chronic arthritis. METHODS: A cohort of children was prospectively and sequentially examined in a pediatric rheumatology clinic from April to June 1997...
