Albers, H M; Brinkman, D M C; Kamphuis, S S M; van Suijlekom-Smit, L W A; van Rossum, M A J; Hoppenreijs, E P A H; Girschick, H J; Wouters, C; Saurenmann, R K; Houwing-Duistermaat, J J; Huizinga, T W J; Schilham, M W; Ten Cate, R (2010). Clinical course and prognostic value of disease activity in the first two years in different subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Arthritis Care and Research, 62(2):204-212.

Abstract

Different percentages of time with active disease have been observed between JIA subtypes in the first 2 years. The cumulative duration of activity varied widely within each subtype. Regarding the prognosis of the individual patient, the clinical course in the first 2 years appears to be predictive of the clinical course in the following years. Patients that have less time with active disease in the first 2 years are not likely to develop an unremitting clinical course later on.
